The return of the Schu

According to Jonathan Noble of Autosport and several other sources Michael Schumacher will be back in the Ferrari F1 car from the Valencia race until Massa is again fit enough to drive for the scuderia.

  • It’s good news all round for F1, since this will generate a lot of buzz and interest around what was to have been a must miss Valencia event.
  • It’s good for Massa, as it is a clear vote of confidence that his replacement is only temporary – something that will become vital should Ferrari decide to announce Alonso as a 2010 driver.
  • It’s less good for the queue of drivers ready to jump at the chance for a Ferrari drive – particularly bad for Kubica, should he have wanted to jump ship.

We must now wait and see how Schumacher gets on in the 2009 spec car, although given his undeniable talent I think he’ll be ok.

Poor Sebastien Bourdais eh? Ferrari didn’t call him. That’s two suprises in one month 😉

  1. No trackbacks yet.
