    The Legend Returns: Schumacher back in Formula One as Massa's replacement

    After several days of speculation, Ferrari announced on Wednesday that seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher will indeed replace the injured Felipe Massa in next month's European Grand Prix in Valencia, Spain.
    An announcement on Ferrari's Web site said that Schumacher, 40, will begin training immediately to make sure he is in shape for his comeback and that he is ready to go.

    Actually,I think it will be interesting. He has not been in an F1 car in three years (I think) and not since the elimination of TC and mods to the wing rules which limit downforce quite a bit. I also think he had a motorcycle injury (his current "hobby") recently that may bring his fitness into question.
