I am not so sure is it better go back to F1 than continue driving Rally. I really hope that Kimi will win at least one Rally race. In my mind that could show his great talent even more than win another F1 champion.

Nice video, thanks!

I miss those years when Kimi was at McLaren. Great years they were for Formula One.

Although F1 reached it´s absolute peak in the mid - late 90´s in my oppinion.
Everything was perfect at thst time, especially the rules. So much freedom for the teams.

i think it is better,cause he can fight for a championship,i want to see him in podium again,fighting for win...In rally he is great but he is better in f1,but there is so much time for improvement in rally.I have a feeling that rally is his year off from f1 cause maybe he got fed up with it for some time,he said that he always wanted to race in rally(and also win wdc in f1 that are his 2 life dreams) and i think that now when he have acommplished that he will come back in f1...i have that feeeling :)

I hope Kimi stays sway from F1 frankly, his fanboys made a lot of forum threads very tiresome and frustrating. Also someone who wastes talent like that deserves to leave F1, he was in a position people dream of and wasted it away through a lack of application.

Thanks!

This seems to be nice forum. Maybe I should go to Schumi fan forum. As we are seen, there is no idea to come back in F1. I am sure that Prost give his agreement for this.

disagree,he didn't wasted talent,he was world champion and you can't call that wasting talent..after that he maybe ''wasted'' 2008 season but even than he had great moments,but in 2009 he had c**p car and i think that everyone should respect what he did in 2009!things that only he can!

Mercedes boss denies Schumi quit talk
YallaF1.com wrote:(GMM) Norbert Haug has played down suggestions that Michael Schumacher’s return to formula one might be short-lived.

Prior to coming out of a three-year retirement last month, the seven time world champion inked a contract with Mercedes tying him to the German marque until the end of 2012.

But Schumacher, 41, has so far failed to outpace his younger teammate Nico Rosberg, lags his German compatriot in the drivers’ table by 26 points, and has yet to qualify higher than 7th or better his 6th place finish in Bahrain.

When asked about rumours the former Ferrari driver might not see the end of his three-year commitment, Mercedes’ competition director Haug answered: “It’s quite the contrary.

“I know that Michael is highly motivated and wants to make his comeback for the long term, with long term success,” he is quoted as saying by Bild newspaper.

When asked if Schumacher is able to add to his record tally of 91 grand prix wins, Haug added: “Yes. As soon as the car can do it, so can Michael.

“The fact that he has not had better results so far is not his fault,” the German said.

“The true fans are experts and know exactly what has happened so far and why there is the points deficit.”

But Haug insisted that his comments do not detract from Rosberg’s achievements so far, including a front row start and podium in Malaysia last weekend.

“In the first three races he did the best job possible,” he said of the 24-year-old.


The season didn't start yet Michael, 16 race to Go.

so massa is likely to stay put in ferrari bcos he is brazilian first and driver second?

I never liked massa in the past, but since his accident, it is clear the guy is determined to try and win a championship. He hasn't won a race yet but he's on top of the leader board becos he is the most consistent so far. So I feel if he doesn't convert every opportunity from now on to win his title this year, there would probably be little to no other opportunities to do so in the future.

Good luck massa!
