You can take the man out of racing but you can never take racing out of the man! Go Schumi go. You were the reason why I got hooked to F1.

Are there any chances of him returning to the tracks again?

Schumi is a class act.
Ferrari bring him back.

well, don't think that could happen as schumi seems to be firm about his retirement.

Quote:
"Is it clear that I am looking forward to it," he said. "My love for the sport is not diminished and Formula One driving is the ultimate.
"But it has nothing to do with my decision to retire, which is final," he added.
"I hope I am able to help and support Ferrari in their preparations for the new season," Schumacher continued.
He added: "In 2008 electronic aids are banned in Formula One, so my experience could be useful."

Jean Todt himself is out of F1 now

And with Ross Brawn signing up for Honda, chances of the God returning are even lesser :(. I actually got my hopes up. I agree with Steeroid !! Get the kids out :P !!

great run there by Schumi, too bad he is out of the sport.

banning TC is the best thing to happen to F1!!! loved the way montoya used to wheelspin going around corners and upshifting aggressively.

guys, while i am a big fan of the man myself, do you see anyone else on that list who would be called a top rung driver other than DC? if you really want to compare times, then it has to be against kimi, felipe, alonso and so on and in similar cars...

lets just wait shall we?

Being fast straight out of the box after more than a year off shows more of his talent than anything else.This is the first time he was driving the F2007 in race settings, he had only driven it before for 4 laps on a wet circuit.Secondly this was without Traction control and using the new ECU,so knowing the car is still more important.

Luca Badoer must have done 1000 Laps in the F2007,Michael has done only 68.Anyway Massa is testing today with Michael.Lets see.
