A battle between Mercedes, Ferrari followed closely by Jordan... I mean Renault and Williams would be nice. I still think Mercedes has the edge though. But as long as the results become way less predictable I am fine with it.
That is quite a story... adventure, too bad that they didn't believe him after the war was over, putting your life on the line and they treat you like some boring storyteller. He definitely should get some sort of recognition for that.
I have to say that this is the Briatore he always was. He did exactly the same thing in Imola 1995: Schumacher crashed and while Herbert was still driving he already left.
Wouldn't surprise me if he did that on a regular basis.
I have to say I thought about that as well, and if we know it then Ferrari most likely also thought about Schumacher's rusty-ness. So I think this is just a way for Ferrari to grab some (positive) attention.
Or this is all just a conspiracy where Schumacher has been testing secretly knowing...
