The Red Baron Is Here…


What else can be more inviting for a formula1 fan like me?

When I read the newspaper today for a moment I reacted a like a kid on watching a cartoon show. I enjoyed each and every word of the news. And even I kept reading it for four or five times again and again. I was completely clueless of my behaviour towards the news. I jumped in the air like I have won a world cup for India.

The news was that Michael Schumacher the greatest legend of the Formula one world racing is back.After Felipe Massa’s Injury Doctor’s confirmed Massa wont return to racing until next season.

Schumacher who haven't driven a Formula one car since his retirement in 2006 announced today that he will be driving for Ferrari for the remaining races of this season.

The 40 year old has already won Seven world Championships with 91 grandprix wins.He has been one of the Highest paid sportsmen of his days and now he is the highest paid mentor for Ferrari. He is also the member of United nations for drivers safety.

His name can make millions of crowds to assemble in grandstands with the scarlet flags along with the symbol of prancing horse flying everywhere in the air.

Now Michael Schumacher will drive along with Kimi Raikkonen for the rest of the season. He has to undergo rigorous training as driving a formula one car is not a joke or an easy thing to do.

Wow.I am excited to the core and I am waiting for the day to see Schumacher back in track. I am sure huge crowd will turn out to see his race. Even though I am not confident with his driving skills now,I still support him and I am still a hardcore fan of him. What more can we expect from a forty year old??Lets see… Hail Schumi….Hail Ferrari…

    I watched this news yesterday around 10 am. I was excited too. As you sad he is coming from restirement, his fitness would be dicy and he would be rusty. I dont have high hopes on him i would expect hi to get atleast a point for ferrari, a podium finish looks bleak. Who knows he might do it , after all he is a champiom right, he has fooled us many a time

    I am also not a keen fan of F1. I am bored to hear the rrrrrrrRRRRRrrrrrrr all the way and nothing dramatic happening. May be because I dont have an informative friend like you to educate me :-)

    But I can see your excitement through out your post. Enjoy.
