Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is making a comeback for Ferrari to replace injured driver Felipe Massa. Ferrari said today in a statement that the 40-year-old German had agreed to drive just until Massa's ready to return. "Though the Formula One chapter has long been closed for me," Shumacher said, "it is also true that for team loyalty reasons I cannot ignore that unfortunate situation."
The 28-year-old Massa was hit in the helmet by a loose part from another car and crashed into a protective tire barrier at 120mph during qualifying Saturday at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Schumacher will return for the Aug. 23 European Grand Prix.
