There are new kids on the block and one of them has beaten him already. He'll fail against Hamilton, Vettel and Alonso, Rosberg will be too fast as well. I'm not joking, because I'm no good in telling jokes :lol:

Old is Gold.

What makes you so confident "He'll fail"? :roll::

Try saying that to a certain L. BAD

I think Schumi should stay retired, even if it's only at least his reputation stays intact.

Maybe it's also because I'm a Schumi fan that doesn't like Mercedes....

Old is Gold cannot be generalize :lol:

Schumacher never had record or greatest driver ego ...so may be he wants to race he will and not care about reputation.

Mclaren Mercedes = Bad
Mercedes = Not Bad :n

Maybe he doesn't have an ego- I just don't want him to embarrass himself.

And I agree on the Mercedes/ Mclaren-Mercedes bit, but I don't think that Mercedes are that good either (they sold their soul to McLaren and Ron Dennis :p ).

Weber told the German weekly Bunte that, after the German had to call off his 2009 return to replace the injured Felipe Massa for health reasons, Schumacher is now "absolutely fit".

"His neck is also completely fine, just like his entire psyche," Weber added. "He could drive for victories."

if he does come back there will be 4 f1 camps on the circuit (5 if Kimi returns) that would be incredible

I've just realised. what if his first name began with a V, then it'd be V BAD. :lol:


back on topic, i still think its unlikely he'll return and i wouldn't him to. it'd be a bit disappointing (and probably embarrassoing for him) if he did badly when he'd had all of that success previously. however, it would be sensational if he came back and won a few races :p

Brilliant column by Olav Mol, about this whole 'fairytale' of MS returning (total bullcrap) stories

He basically says that Willy 'the dreamer' Weber, just wants Schuamcher to be in the neesw, so that he can get some money out of this situation, by saying that he is in talks with Mercedes GP. Which is completely true IMO

But it was Mercedes that invested on him in his early days;Group C Sauber-Mercedes. :O

Anyway, to discuss about his return as a driver is nonsense IMHO, but i can see him as a manager or technical advisor of "something" :) at one team, even at Mercedes.

I think he should stay retired. Let someone else begin or progress their F1 career.

I wonder if Haug and Brawn are just riding a nice wave of free publicity that's come from very little real fact.

If Jesus, Mohamed Buda and Zeus were all put in a blinder and mixed into a nice fruit smoothie I would still follow Schumacher first. He is holy to me and he will return!!!! I find all of this doubt in my all mighty deity down right disrespectful. YOU’RE ALL GOING TO BECOME NASCAR FANS IF YOU DON’T REPENT!!!

Both very good points :)

I will admit that I do respect Mercedes for investing in Michael, but I can't forgive them for aligning themselves with McLaren (I don't like McLaren).

I can see him being in his current Ferrari role next year, at Ferrari.
