Schu return would be ‘dream’ – report

Mon, 5 November 2007, 08:47

A mischievous remark by Williams’ Patrick Head has led to genuine speculation that Michael Schumacher might be limbering up to abandon retirement after just one year.

Team co-owner Head, whilst facing rumours that McLaren is preparing to launch a high priced bid for Nico Rosberg’s services, suggested an alternative for the seat vacated by the now departed Fernando Alonso.

Head noted that McLaren is “in a position to offer very large salaries”.

He also told the Mail on Sunday: “Ron Dennis has proved to be a lateral thinker, which is why I am musing over the idea that he might look to Schumacher.

“Michael’s still fit“- and probably bored.

“I suspect he has found sitting on the pit wall dull.”

The German newspaper Bild-Zeitung reported Head’s quotes by explaining that Schumacher in a ‘Silver Arrows’ would be “a dream for all German fans”.

Former German F1 driver Hans-Joachim Stuck commented: “I can imagine that there are thoughts along those lines.

“Michael has everything: skill, fitness, and I am sure that he would beat (Lewis) Hamilton,” he added.
