Michael Schumacher announces shock return to F1

Posted by Posted by Grand Prix Blogger On 12:30

Yes it really is true, seven times Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher has announced that he is to return to Grand Prix racing with Ferrari. The decision to come back was prompted by the serious accident that left Felipe Massa in hospital with serious injuries during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.

There has been much speculation and rumour in the F1 world that the German was possibly considering a dramatic return to F1 after his spokeswoman hinted that he may be prepared to fill in for Massa in the Ferrari team. Hopes that he would return seemed to be dashed yesterday when his manager Willie Weber was quoted as saying he was '200 percent sure' that 40-year old Schumacher would not return to F1 with the Italian outfit.

Today's announcement will heighten interest in the sport no end as we anticipate the Europen Grand Prix at Valencia in just under a months time. With a ban on testing and having been out of the sport for over two years Schumacher will have his work cut out to be ready for a return to top form in Spain.

Grand Prix Blogger waits in anticipation for what will surely be an amazing spectacle at what was promising to be a dull return to a circuit widely criticised during last years event.
