    Schumacher in for Massa!

    I listened to schuey chatting at the last GP and i actualy thought he was a great guy now he is now racing now more.

    "Now, the German racing legend has decided to come out of retirement and make a sensational return despite admitting: "It is true that the Formula 1 chapter has long been closed for me."

    If he does good the rest of the season he will DEFO come back next year.

    i seemed to remember he quit because Alonso beat him twice on the trott.

    you realy dont like hamilton do you. schumacher will still have the touch but he will prob take a few races to get up to speed. do the rules mean he cant do any testing in the car till the practice on the friday? if he went out and won the first race all the others would have to hang their heads in shame.

    he must be confident he will do well,i mean he wouldnt come back if he thought he would be near the back of the grid. he will know from his lap times in the car as he will have driven it loads in development. both him and hamilton are pretty agressive so it would be interesting if both cars are getting up to speed as they seem to be.

    This is the most exciting thing to happen to Formula 1 in a long time. Still cant believe I'm going to get to see Hamilton vs Schumacher :cool: :yahoo:

    I would love it to be those battling it out for the race lead at Valencia!

    He is on the mend now and talkin fine. i reckon he will be back on track in a few races time. Woot Woot.

    "He said the blank is "sort of a strange feeling," but his number one aim is very clear in his mind: "I'm feeling much better now and I want to recover as soon as possible to get back behind the wheel of a Ferrari.""

    Newer rules and car - he's done the business no matter what machinery he had and he has proved himself through so many rule changes from 94 onwards, when Hamilton and Rosberg were still in short trousers - it's a fitness issue not a capability one!

    Cough* why did he retire again? read my post 5 posts down.

    so basically he quit F1 because Alonso beat him twice on the trot(read his bio) An now is not returning to F1 because his neck hurts due to crashing a bike?
    I for one am glad he is not returning. Finally we can get on with this years championship without any more media *****.

    "Unhappy Montezemolo selects Badoer for Valencia"??? Well he is the reserve driver so he should be first choice when the main drivers are injured or whats the point in being a reserve driver??

    Lets get back to supporting this years drivers and watch the remaining races without the distraction of poomacher.

    Alonso and Massa have got to be the future for Ferrari.
    Kimi's body language is wrong. He doesn't seem to have the same desire of a couple of seasons ago. Schumi was a real pity. Would have paid hard cash to see him race again. A true legend regardless of the attitude.

    I'm most interested to see what Button can salvage during the next few races. It's got to be his best chance even of becoming champ and yet BrawnGP are struggling.

    It's gonna be an interesting final third as the unlikely's continue to take GP wins.

    Yes - it's been a cracking season again, third one really in a row, looking forward to this weekend, even without Schumi.

    Title race is too close to call - Button has still kept his points ticking over since the great start....

    Number Car Driver Weight [kg]​
    01 McLaren Mercedes Lewis Hamilton 653.0
    22 Brawn Mercedes Jenson Button 661.5​
    23 Brawn Mercedes Rubens Barrichello 662.5


    First Pit stop
    Lewis Hamilton +0.249 (lap 15)
    Rubens Barrichello lap 19
    Jenson Button +0.291 (lap 18)


    Not really that amazing :tocktock:

    Barrichello is carrying 9.5kg more fuel than Hamilton, which means he will probably stop four laps later than him in the race. And that is likely to set up a fascinating Grand Prix.

    The weights of the cars at the start of the 2009 European Grand Prix will be:
    *declared weight​
    Number Car Driver Weight [kg]​
    01 McLaren Mercedes Lewis Hamilton 653.0
    02 McLaren Mercedes Heikki Kovalainen 655.0
    03 Ferrari Luca Badoer 690.5*
    04 Ferrari ​
    Kimi Räikkönen 661.5
    05 BMW Sauber Robert Kubica 657.5
    06 BMW Sauber Nick Heidfeld 677.0*
    07 Renault Fernando Alonso 656.5
    08 Renault Romain Grosjean 677.7*
    09 Toyota Jarno Trulli 707.3*
    10 Toyota Timo Glock 694.7*
    11 STR Ferrari Jaime Alguersuari 678.5*

    17 Williams Toyota Kazuki Nakajima 702.0*
    20 Force India Mercedes Adrian Sutil 672.5*
    21 Force India Mercedes Giancarlo Fisichella 692.5*
    22 Brawn Mercedes Jenson Button 661.5

    23 Brawn Mercedes Rubens Barrichello 662.5


    1 Rubens Barrichello lap 19
    2 Heikki Kovalainen +0.216secs (lap 16)
    3 Lewis Hamilton +0.249 (lap 15)
    4 Jenson Button +0.291 (lap 18)
    5 Sebastian Vettel +0.507 (lap 16)
    6 Nico Rosberg +0.540 (lap 20)
    7 Mark Webber +0.610 (lap 20)
    8 Kimi Raikkonen +0.614 (lap 18)

    Kimi Raikkonen on Friday admitted for the first time the possibility he will leave Ferrari at the end of the season.
    Noooo whata shocker...NOT. Like we didnt know this 2 yrs ago. F1 Teams must think the fans are stupid not to no things like this..

    "If for some reason I am not at Ferrari next season I know I'll have a seat at another team in the paddock," he is quoted as saying by Britain's Daily Telegraph. "It's not a problem. Other teams want me."

    His comments coincide with increasing speculation that Ferrari has now signed a contract with Fernando Alonso and needs to part with either of its existing contracted drivers for 2010: Raikkonen, or the recovering Felipe Massa.

    It is believed an amicable split between Ferrari and Raikkonen is likely, but it will cost the Italian team millions as his engagement next year would have earned him in excess of $45m.

    Is it just me or is Niki Lauda a complete and utter cock!! He talks the biggest load of poo since eddie jordan. One week he sayd how good a driver is because he won a race. he says how brilliant they are and how top teams should sign them. Then the next week they dont drive so good and he says how **** they are and how they should be sacked.. What a tosser!!!

    "Ferrari must absolutely get Fisichella into the cockpit at Monza," Said Lauda.

    LOL im sorry but check this stat out....Fisichella has won three races in his career to date. He has been trying for 12yrs.. Yeah great choice Niki...:gun2:

    I'm sorry to say Reptor, but the ONLY bullshit here is coming from you, and it bloody stinks! :)

    That quote was made at the end of qualifying was it not, well before the car weights was released!

    I'm not too sure if the fact that Lewis Hamilton made pole that it kicked you into gear, that you have to find something to scrutinise it! Your vision has been blurred by your dislike of this young man who represents his country and drives for a team who you apparently support also(I think I read that in the past, but stand to be corrected).

    Luca Badoer has proved in the last 2 races that driver ability comes to it aswell as a decent car, why was he so poor in a car which Kimi can bring home 1st in the same race?

    Get over it man, Lewis is starting to race again, and where the hell is the superior Alonso? :search: ....... behind Force India debutant Vitantonio Liuzzi, not that's a FACT!

    not really dude. maybe you should take your rose tinted glass off and think outside the box once in a while. i did support the team and have done so for the past 10yrs. I no longer suport them after ron denis **** on Alonso and even martin whitmarsh said that he regrets that. Anyways the FACTS still remain that "a stunning pole" is bolloxs when P1 = Hamilton +0.047 (lap 16) and P2 = Sutil +0.200 (lap 17) and the rest of the field will be pitting some 10 - 15 laps later. (Alonso+0.381 (lap 26)

    All im saying is i dont buy into the whole "stunning pole" from no-one!! albeit alonso,kimi,lewis or button. Lets face it. Even Luca Badoer could get pole if he had no fuel in it!

    Lewis aint all that and only one the "fluke" championship by a lucky point. He wont be world champ again and lets just sit back and see what happens m8

    But it WAS a stunning lap at the time of watching bud, not you, me or the commentators knew the car weights when he got pole!

    You can say what you want afterwoods, but to say that quote from a few posts above is bullsh!t, at the time of it being quoted is a bit ahead of yourself is it not?


    Not too bothered who wins it, I'd like Lewis Hamilton to win it, which I'm sure you know already, but so long as Jenson benefits in some way by the results, then I'm a happy man.

    So Hamilton for the win, Jenson for the championship at the end of the year, with Ruben's breathing down his back for second, probably a point in it again. :moa:

    Force India's FTW! :)

    I'd like to think he 'can' as opposed to he 'will' win the race. Let's see what McLaren has lined up, they didn't make him light just to get pole, they have a strategy in hand, and it may or may not work.

    I reckon a KERS equipped car will win the race in the end, the track suits that type of a system.

    Hmm he "Could" have finished the race if it wasnt for this driver error.
