Big Schu: back in 2010?

SchumacherMichael 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?

we could have 3 cars per team because we could bring back qualifying for the race

3 cars per team so cool and would help find work for some of the lads at bmw. bring it on maybe reverse grid come on FIA give it a go Ok we wont have qualifying so maybe a 1hr sat sprint race and a 2hr race on sunday. Sat points would be half sundays

Dont worry FIA you can have my ideas for free

Crap idear. Qualy stay as it is exept q3 also on low fuel. Cars(read wings) back to normal as the new aero rules only gave us clown cars and no more overtaking. And if ness 3cars per team to fill up the grid (which, again, has a max of 26cars, read the rules). Rather c 3 McLarens, Williams, Renaults, Red Bulls, Ferrari´s iso of this strange unknown new teams. And stay on Silverstone, damn!

blockbuy I have to disagree. Micahel Schumacher is the greatest sportsman ever. If you don’t belive me, look at the schumacher effect in motion: surges in ticket sales as schumacher came back into the light. He retired at just the right time for us, to make F1 interesting again (basically, he was too good) but now if he comes back, it will be a joy to see him race against Hamilton and Button, to see how he matches up, and to see if hes still got it.

The earliest memory I have of schu is going through the tunnel at Monaco.

My earliest memory is to see Senna win at Estoril, ’85. Those were the days. F1 cars looked like proper F1 cars and the drivers were something else, they still are, but the 2009 cars look stupid.

I dont think there will be three cars per team. The FIA wants cut backs so adding another car to the grid wont help, would be fun though

Has anyone noticed the picture in the background with the stig in it? The evidence is piling up… I haven’t been paying attention to the comments so sorry if somebody else spotted it first.

@46. Marcus, where the hell did you read that, why would they drop their champion driver? That’d be like Renault dropping Fernando or McLaren droping Hamilton, unless, Kimi want’s out to persue more … off-circuit racing?

It’s all over the place fezza are giving Kimi half his years salary to get rid of him because he may be a champion but where has his winning driving gone

I really really hope he will go back to F1

NICE ONE GET SOME REAL TALENT BACK IN TO F1 LIKE THE OLD DAYS BECAUSE HAMILTON CANT KEEP IT TOGETHER AND JENSON BUTTON ISNT AS GOOD AS EVERYONE THOUGHT.SO WHAT IF IT MEANS AN EXTRA CAR AT LEAST IT WILL BE QUITE ENTERTAINING.

y r ferrari gettin rid of kimi now after he came 3rd on sunday? plus i dont think having schumacher back is a good idea plainly because he hasnt raced f1 for years and it would disappoint people if he didnt dominate.

GET HIM BACK IN A F1 CAR

Look everyone, in 1989 there were 39 entrents, but the reason they got it down was PRE-QUALIFYING!!!!!

It’s an excellent way of getting rid of entrents, but it would be bad news for, Nakajima, Badoer, Algersuari etc, etc.
