Schumacher’s return cancelled

Another day, another twist in this never ending season of Formula 1, as the “Terminator” has had to scuttle his planned for return to F1 as Felipe Massa’s stand-in.

Michael Schumacher:
“Yesterday evening, I had to inform Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo and team principal Stefano Domenicali that unfortunately I'm not able to step in for Felipe”

As it seems well documented now, Herr Schumacher has been recovering from a motorcycle accident earlier this year and after testing a private ’07 spec Ferrari F1 chassis in Mugello, the persistent neck pain has failed to go away completely and therefore Schumacher will give way to Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer, as I for one am very disappointed over this latest development of which I’m certain isn’t good news for the Valencia promoter, eh? Especially if Alonso is forced to serve his teams one race ban…

  2. Yes, its a great shame... Having just read how many people have been buying tickets just to see Herr Schumacher race again, as I'm disapointed not to see the Terminator mix it up with the Young Lions...

    Badoer appears to be getting his shot supposedly outta loyality... Like thumping around for endless kilometers so Michael could win all of those titles and I'm wondering if his pick has something to do with pleasing the home country, eh? Especially since Monza is fast approaching...
