3 weeks but of course testing ban so he can't run the car until the first Friday testing session ;)

That will be interesting and give Kimi a fright
Too right, may prompt him into showing signs of life! He looks so miserable!

Great! I can start wearing my genuine 'Pole Position' genuine 'Shuey' Ferrari polo shirt again in public.:D So if you see an old guy wearing this wandering around Hertfordshire, who is as thin as a rake, sound your horn and give a thumbs up! Take time waiting for a response though as I'm a bit slow in reacting of late.:lol: :D

Very funny those papers on Mr Schumacher's 'come back' and a bit of a kick in the face to the reserve drivers Marc Gene and Luca Badoer. Its a bit of a laugh really.
With all due respect to Felipe Massa and hoping he'll recover 100% quickly, it smells like a marketing scam for Ferrari. A well thought out one, but a marketing scam all the same. Think of the zillions of people who will be watching TV just because its Mr Schumacher and not Marc Gene or Luca Badoer.
How many times do we hear that "so and so is too old and is on the way out at 30 - 35 ?" and here are Ferrari talking about bringing in a middle aged man to drive against some drivers that could technically be his son's ?
I hope he prooves all those TV speakers wrong and does well, but what if he doesn't ?
It doesn't matter really, its all in the money and publicity that F1 needs very badly and very NOW.
Or maybe its all about the publicity they can get in the papers and he won't drive?
Having competed in a very physical and demanding water sport, I know I'm past it now against the young guns, still good, but not as reactive and shamefully oblivious to the danger, its mother nature taking the toll...

Very amusing headline on the back of The Times today announcing this:

"Schuey, Lewis and the news"

Made me smile.
:lol:

Please add further comments to the F12009 thread:)
