Default Scoop - Schumi will not race the F1 Car!!

Just got a confirmation from a source that the King - Michael Schummacher will not be racing in the F1 Championships this year!

The agent who represents him - has stated this and there will be a press release on the same today.

A Shame Really

Had heard that Schumi was still complaining of his neck pain which he developed during a bike accident. Not sure if that is the cause of which he will not be racing F1

The story is on BBC and other F1 sites as well.

Formula One news: Schumacher cancels F1 comeback - GPUpdate.net Formula One

Pretty unfortunate ... The world was waiting for the Kings return ...

Yup... The bad news is confirmed and all sites are showing the same :-(

Schumi calls off comeback - Planet-F1 News - from planet-f1.com

Damn, I was really waiting for Schumi to drive a F1 car again.

Oh no..!!! This is very unfortunate news. Was looking forward to the season with Schumi racing in the F1 car again.. This is very very bad news. Hope he somehow manages to get better and is back to racing this season as Massa's replacement.
