SO how long will the healing process take?

Even if Badoer drives in Valencia, will MS be recovered for Spa, SIngapore etc. Man, at this point something is better than nothing. Not looking forward to seeing Luca.B at all. Sorry Luca, nothing personal!

Default Sledgehammer to break a nut, Luca?

autosport.com - F1 News: Ferrari eyes third car for Schumacher

Some excitement for you Schumi fans. But I doubt if this will go through. If Luca wants Schumi so badly, then let him replace Kimi when he leaves. Why get into the whole three car debate again when we clearly have a nice mix of established and new teams to fill the grid for 2010?

Schumi called off F1, due to neck injury. In news just now.

All my excitement went off.

whatever the politics may be behind the decission IMO the existing test driver will definetly have better chance than beloved schumi. Remember Massa was test driver initially for ferrari and had ocassionaly substituted (i don't remember was it for schumi or barrichelo) and went on to finish second (was running first when team orders played in)

The difference being, Massa then already had racing experience with Sauber. Luca on the other hand has always been a test driver. Marc Gene would be a better option.

I really will miss him. I can quite understand that his neck will not hold up.

What is still open is whether he will miss only one race, or is aborting him come back altogether.

Thank God for finding this thread as some mods are going around closing threads on Schumi not returning, even one dating back to May!! imho when a thread is closed then it should ideally be merged into an existing thread, or at least indicated as to what existing thread(s) does the mods want to be used.

Luca is more experienced than Marc and that might also be a factor. I think this is good for Schumi as this year Ferrari's bearings for F1 calendar are just not right. It would have been thrilling but still disappointing for MS fans. All the best to Luca/Marc and especially Felipe.

Thumbs up Pundits still expecting a Schumacher return

Pundits still expecting a Schumacher return (Formula 1 : F1 Live, with F1-Live.com)

Schumacher’s F1 days now behind him?

Two pundits have told Michael Schumacher fans not to get too disheartened despite the seven time world champion calling off his Formula One return.

The 40-year-old German had aimed to fill in for Ferrari's injured Felipe Massa, but his own lingering neck injury meant returning at Valencia next weekend would have endangered his health.

Schumacher played down his motorcycle testing crash in February, but Germany's Bild newspaper now claims he fractured bones in his head and neck, as well as damaging an artery supplying blood to the rear of his head.

Former Grand Prix driver Christian Danner however believes Schumacher will still want to return if his injuries heal. "Perhaps he'll be at Monza," the veteran of 47 Grand Prix is quoted as saying, referring to the Italian Grand Prix in the middle of September.

Another former German driver, Hans-Joachim Stuck, added: "I would not rule out a comeback for Michael totally.

Perhaps next year, if he is able to recover from his injuries completely."

Former team boss Eddie Jordan however has other plans for the Italian Grand Prix. "Massa has, thank goodness, made a huge recovery," the Ulsterman told BBC radio's TalkSport programme. "Don't be surprised if he returns at Monza.”

Schumacher is expected to hold a press conference later today in Geneva with Doctor Johannes Peil of the Bad-Neuheim Sportklinic in attendance, according to German newspaper Rhein Zeitung


Montezemolo keen to see Schumacher back in F1(Formula 1 : F1 Live, with F1-Live.com)

Ferrari has vowed to "fight" for the right to field a third car for Michael Schumacher. The 40 year-old on Tuesday called off his comeback to replace the injured Felipe Massa due to a neck complaint, but Luca di Montezemolo has not given up hope that the German will be seen again at the wheel of a Ferrari.

"We're continuing to fight until every team has the right to start with three cars in the next season, and one I'd have handed over to Michael with pleasure," the Ferrari president said in an interview with Italy's La Stampa newspaper.

Also in the interview, published in full on Wednesday, Montezemolo hinted that he will check on Schumacher's availability to drive a third Ferrari ahead of the 2010 season.

The 61-year-old Italian also used the opportunity to have another dig at F1's new wave of teams, including US F1, Campos and Manor - and possibly another in the place of the withdrawing BMW Sauber.

"I prefer three McLarens and three Renaults to three 'whatevers'," Montezemolo jibed. "With BMW gone, there's not much to say but lots to do."

Micheal Schumacher might be coming back that is what I read. I am not sure if this news is true or not, but I would love to see him come back.
