Default Europe F1- Valencia- Legendary countdown

With 22 days left for the next race, the countdown with lots and lots of excitement has already reached a peak to quite a lot of the world's population

Mr Perfectionist Massa ruled out for the rest of the season, and wonderful to hear he's recuperating well and is going to be fit for F1 sometime soon.

AND

With the Legendary Michael Schumacher making his comeback this very race, we hope to see and relive that long lost MICHAEL MAGIC once again.

What does each and every one predict for the coming race?

2004 Europe Grand Prix == Winner

2005 Europe Grand Prix == Finished 5th

2006 Europe Grand Prix == Winner

I wonder what all the Schumi fans who started backing new drivers in 2007 are going to do. Do you support your new guy or go back to your old hero in Valencia??

Guys,

These next few races with the Red Baron ought to put some young drivers in their places. I'm waiting to see a few things:

1. MS vs Kimi
2. MS vs Hamilton
3. MS vs the Brawns
4. MS vs Vettel

It's going to be one helluva interesting time seeing how MS will return. And with his legendary skills in car setup, this could perhaps be the key to what Ferrari has been needing all season because he's never driven the F60. This is probably why it has not been able to match up all season. Every other season, MS has had some varying levels of input into the season's single seater except in 2009.

If he races a couple of times, Ferrari incorporates his feedback, they're back to the top. Although driver's championship seems a little out of hand, constructors championship is still up for grabs seemingly at this stage.

Having seen Schumi from 1998 to 2006, I wouldnt mind even if he doesnt finish.
It would be very very exciting to see the King return in The Red Car and a huge morale boost to everyone.

Thumbs up

If massa can use the F60 to challenge the leaders on the board, Schumi can definately win it provided the car finishes the race...

Waiting for the next race
EUROPE | Valencia

As if such a large gap by itself wasn't enough, its now confirmed that we will see Schumy in a Ferrari at Valenci!! Man, I never thought he'd ever be racing in Formula 1 again. And I simply cannot wait. This is going to be one of the longest three weeks of my life. I feel bad about Alonso though (I am NOT a fan), he's got a pretty severe penalty just when the Renault was begining to pick some pace.

Either ways, Valencia is sure to get a MASSIVE boost in TRP / viewership. Bring it on, Michael! Remind 'em how its done.

Default Schumi back in F1 without Alonso in SPAIN..!!

This is what I feel like doing. Come on guys how can we forget the man who beat the great Schumi to the title twice in a row? and to top it all on his home turf! I am just so hoping that FIA allow Alonso to race. I think a fine for the team will be the right lesson. It was not his fault that the wheel came off.

I hate Hamilton, but I am very eager to see what happens when Schumi and Hamilton race one an another and they both will have the KERS on their cars.

I think I need to add to HRT_FPV 's post

*. MS vs Webber
*. MS vs Alonso
1. MS vs Kimi
2. MS vs Hamilton
3. MS vs the Brawns ( Remove Barrichelo, he will not be anywhere close)
4. MS vs Vettel

Not to forget the BMW's, for sure they are quitting this year so they have nothing to loose. And the team boss Mario Theissien has said that they will go out fighting.

The season just got better!!

Can MS pull off a "Rocky Balboa" ?

MS fans (me included) expect him to walk out of retirement and win the race

MS was sure out of F1 action for 3 yrs but

You can take Schumi out of F1 but

You cant take F1 out of Schumi.

Thats why some guys are called LEGENDS.

you are getting unduly excited. At the end of the day the car and the setup matter the most. Dont you remember seeing Hamilton in 17th place not long ago. This is not a one make series.

Man, why so much excitement. The poor guy will first have to undergo intensive training to last the duration of the race and then have a very good car. There are so many factors against him.
