Michael Schumacher Makes Shock F1 Comeback For Ferrari From Euro GP

Michael Schumacher, the most successful racing driver of all time has made the shock decision to come out of retirement to race for Ferrari from the next Grand Prix onwards after Felipe Massa’s unfortunate incident in the last grand prix weekend.

Schumacher, who won the F1 world championship 7 times, will now spend the next few weeks preparing himself to drive the Ferrari F60 car, he has not tested it thus far.  The last time Schumacher drove an F1 car was testing in 2008, and he retired in 2006 at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Since Massa’s incident, rumour has been flying about who would replace the Brazilian for Ferrari, and now the rumours are put to bed as Schumacher returns.

“The most important thing first: thanks God, all news concerning Felipe are positive. I wish him all the best again,” said Schumacher.

“I was meeting this afternoon with Stefano Domenicali and Luca di Montezemolo and together we decided that I will prepare myself to take the place of Felipe.

“Though it is true that the chapter Formula 1 has been closed for me since long and completely, it is also true that for loyalty reasons to the team I cannot ignore that unfortunate situation. But as the competitor I am, I also very much look forward to facing this challenge.”

    Who will Schumacher’s points go to? To himself, to Felipe Massa or to none?
