Ecclestone Would Love Schumacher Comeback
Bernie Ecclestone has said he would absolutely love it if 7 time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher made a comeback to Formula One.
Schumacher is being linked with a drive with the new Mercedes Benz team and both are refusing to deny a comeback is on the cards.
“I would personally doubt that he’s going to make a comeback but, having said that, it’s maybe getting a bit stronger than a rumour,” said Ecclestone in respected British newspaper The Times.
“It would be magic [If Schumacher returned to F1]” Ecclestone said. “You saw the interest he created when he was going to come back after Felipe Massa had his accident.”
He added: “Whether or not this is going to happen, I don’t know. If I was Michael I wouldn’t do it, but I’m sure he knows he could get the job done.”
