Looking forward to the challenge - Schumacher

By on

The world will once again witness seven time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher in a Scuderia Ferrari race car, this time at the European GP in Valencia, Spain. Schumacher admits that because of his loyalty to the Scuderia he could not pass up taking injured Felipe Massa's place while he recovers.

Schumacher has spoken to the press since his comeback was announced, saying, "I met this afternoon with Stefano Domenicali and Luca di Montezemolo and together we decided that I will prepare myself to take the place of Felipe.

"Though it is true that the Formula One chapter was completely closed for me a long time ago, it is also true that for loyalty reasons to the team I cannot ignore this unfortunate situation," he added, referring to Felipe Massa's spring related accident at the Hungarian GP.
