Michael Schumacher to replace Felippe Massa :: Schumacher back in Formula One

Seven time world Champion Michael Schumacher is all set for a comeback who retired from Formula One in the year 2006. He is going to replace Felippe Massa after he was injured during the Qualifying session of the Hungarian Grand Prix. He was then kept under induced coma for observation and has sustained a skull injury. But he is slowly recovering back to normal, but still it won't be possible for him to race for quite sometime this season. So Ferrari is planning to bring back their champion Michael Schumacher for the next race in Valencia, Europe.

Michael will be undergoing fitness tests before he joins the team and as of now he is just the team advisor. In terms of fitness, neck is the most vulnerable part in Formula One driver's body, and the amount of g-force that is applied on that is equal to 3 or 4 times the weight of the helmet especially during turns. And Michael had earlier met with a bike accident this year and the fitness experts wants to make sure that he is completely fit before the race.
