Michael Schumacher’s F1 dream may not be all over.
Though Big Schu – who was called in to replace Felipe Massa after the Brazilian sustained a monster head injury in Hungary – was ruled out of the Valencia race with a neck injury, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has hinted that Schumacher could race next year… if the lead teams are allowed three cars on the grid.
“We’re continuing to fight until every team has the right to start with three cars in the next season,” said di Montezemolo. “One I’d have handed over to Michael with pleasure.”
“We’re talking about Michael Schumacher,” he added. “He is 40 years old, but he’s still from another planet.”
Di Montezemolo has also spoken in more depth about the injury that forced Schumacher to surrender his race seat in Valencia.
“They found something that still didn’t work, so it’s better not to insist,” he said. “We wouldn’t do that at all. He had the small motorcycle accident in February and on the first laps at Mugello he felt that something was wrong. You shouldn’t joke with your health.”
So what do you reckon? Would you like to see three Ferraris on the grid next year? And, if so, who should the three drivers be? Surely no one would object to Big Schu taking one of the seats… would they?
