    If I remember correctly a certain Nigel Mansell also came out of retirement and did very well in the races he competed in and he was a lot more out of shape than MS.
    So I believe MS is at least handy enough in a Ferrari to score a few podiums.
    :) And at the moment F1 needs somthing like this as it is in a bad place at the moment.

    F1 has a history of allowing old drivers back in and them doing very well.

    I've never liked MS due to his arrogance. Same reason why I do not like Lewis Hamilton, but that is a different subject all together.

    However, MS arrogance imo has been earned over the years and championships.
    It would be good to see him back to spice things up even more :D

    You never know, he may even win the championship this year :giggle:

    Holy ffffff....flip.

    This is the biggest news to hit F1 this year. I shall now proceed to roll around on the floor, foaming at the mouth and muttering gibberish.

    THE MAN IS BACK. :D

    This is Ferrari, the FIA will probably let Badoer drive as well as Schumacher, and Gene and Rakkionen and Massa when he's fit again :D

    Schumacher wil buy a car of Ferrari(for nothing) He will hire a track and then just test for a whole week.

    They couldn't say this wouldn't be allowed as Schumacher could just say it was for fun/personal pleasure.
    Nothing wrong with that is there

    he can do something like alonso did last season: score more points than anyone else in the second half, and win the driver of the year price.... that would be really awesome hahaha

    I agree with David, he earned his right to arrogance (if there is a right...).

    I do feel a bit sorry for Gene and Luca, But I doubt Schumacher will race every race without Massa. Then again, you have to keep in mind, Ferrari need the best they can get to get in reach of the constructors (keep 3rd, or fight for 2nd).

    Either way, it's gonna be a sight to see Schumacher wringing the neck of a car that isn't the fastest in the field anymore...
    Bring it on!

    I fully support Ferrari giving Schumi a few races. They don't have a winning car this season and are unlikely to get near the driver's or constructor's championships, so why shouldn't they entertain us with this very interesting side show. Kudos to Ferrari! This mid-year break is going to seem very long indeed.

    Schumi fans, of which I am one, him being the reason I started watching F1 again, and I reckon Schumi haters too, will be glued to their TVs to watch the fun and see what the out-of-practice master can do with the out-of-form Ferrari. Many will enjoy what happens, whether he still 'has it' or not.

    it should be a great show because as well schumi is testing he ferrari f2007. He will have to learn the F60 and the valencia street circuit all in one weekend!

    That's why this is said to be "revitalising" F1. All the F1 haters, Schumi haters, and fans will be watching this race. It should be epic.

    I imagine bookies are gone poopdy-doop over the "Schumacher Comeback".

    For Schumacher to in the title, Button must retire from every following race, and Schumacher must win every one! Nothing's impossible, and he IS Schumacher :p

    I imagine this is what's going on over the 4 week break, an '80s Rocky workout montage! (Schumacher and Kimi) :p

    Very nice from them! But I think now they should also ask FIA to let them test for a day, because Schumi's testing is also a great opportunity to gather additional info about the car.
    But, well, just wait for what FIA will say.
