    ROME: Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher is making a sensational return to Formula One, Ferrari announced on Wednesday. The German motor racing legend, who retired in 2006, will replace injured Felipe Massa in the European Grand Prix in Valencia on August 23, and possibly for the remainder of the season. "The Ferrari-Marlboro team plans to give Michael Schumacher Felipe Massa's car until the Brazilian returns to competition," Ferrari announced in a statement on its website.
    The statement added: "Michael Schumacher says he is available and in the coming days he will pursue a specific programme of preparation at the end of which it will be possible to confirm his participation in the European Grand Prix." News of Schumacher's comeback to the sport he virtually made his own came 24 hours after the possibility had first been raised by his spokeswoman, Sabine Kehm. "The whole thing will be considered by Ferrari. If they approach Michael, then he will consider it," Kehm had said.
    She added: "Usually, I would say he's not interested because he's fine with his life and he doesn't miss anything but now the situation is so different - it's very hypothetical - and Michael doesn't want to step into that (discussion)." Schumacher, who is on Ferrari's pay roll as an advisor, will be filling in for Massa, who is recovering from surgery following his horrific high speed crash in qualifying for last weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix. Only this month the 40-year-old had made it clear speaking at the German Grand Prix that he was not interested in making a full time comeback.
    But the offer of a temporary return to the Ferrari cockpit obviously proved too much to resist for 'Schumi' who has recovered from a neck injury sustained in a motorcycle accident in February.

    well well whats here, shumy back in the circuit, though i still miss the days of mika and shumy rivalry days, nothing beats that, but with hamilton around, this is going to quite something. it will be fun seeing kimi raikkonen team up with shumy, last when they met, they were rivals staring at each other.
