Hey Slow, I assume you heard Schumacher's signed up with Mercedes (last year's Brawn team - and Ross Brawn will still be team principle) to race again in 2010?

The Europe fans have been pushing for more street races and Rome has just been contracted for the next one. They say in 2011 but Bernie Ecclestone (Mr F1) says it won't be on the calendar until 2012.

Bernie's also desparate to get it to take off in the US but, after the debacle of the teams dispute which surfaced in the last attempt, he (and the US promoters) will probably let the fuss die down for a couple of years before trying again.

GO McLAREN!!!

If you can get him to swing by the old (not-in-use) parabolica and take some hi-res pics to share, I'd be very grateful.

It's hard walkin' up there, but some from mid-track would be fantastic. I'm given to understand there is a park in the infield there and access is not impossible. Sound right?

I'd be surporised if his brother Ralf gets another drive.
He wasn't much cop when he was racing.
Admittedly he didn't have a good car in his entire career but it's still results that count.
Monza will be great, I'm jealous.
If I had a choice, I'd do Monte Carlo but you need a hotel room overlooking the track (or a yacht in the Swimmming Pool) and the price, on race weekends, is a tad prohibitive.
No point in standing around the track, they're hanging from the trees.
