I wonder if Willi Weber wishes to eat his words followed by a stein of bier.

I am surprised he would come back and drive the current Ferrari, even under these circumstances. I would love to see him get one more win. Schumi most likely saved Massas job.

If Schumi can't drive it, put a call into Boris Said.

What exactly was it Willi said? I think it was, "I'm not 100% sure Michael won't replace Felipe in the next race, I'm 200% sure."

I think it will be interesting to watch. Think of all the changes since he last drove, launch control, traction control, rear down force, etc. It will be a different car from what he was used to. That and the Ferrari's have looked like a SM on bad 888's this year... [Smile]

Three years out of F-1, driving a car that is not only different from the Ferraris he once drove, but car that is not very competitive this year...probably no opportunity to test and the first race is on a course he has never driven.

This is going to be good.

I dunno, back in the Beneton days, there was no launch control, traction control, and more. I think he'll do fine.

I think Schumi will beat Kimi and thats all he really wants to do [Smile] This may be the kick in the ass Kimi needs to wake up and get with the program.

And Schumi is "recovering" from a motorcycle accident; go ahead, tie one arm behind his back and he'll still probably open up a monster can of whoop-azz on the rest of 'em! [Big Grin]
