Mercedes rumours stocked by managers comments

Michael Schumacher's manager has said the seven-time champion is fit enough to race in F1 again, stoking speculation that he will race for Mercedes next season.

Willi Weber told the German press that Schumacher is now "absolutely fit".

"His neck is also completely fine, just like his entire psyche," Weber said. "He could drive for victories."

However, triple champion Niki Lauda played down the liklihood of a Schumacher comeback.

"I don't believe that there is one single grain of truth in them, at least from all the signals that I get," said Lauda.

Re: Schuey 'fit to race again'

and Mario when he last won in Indycars - pretty demanding back in the early 90's - did'nt he hold the quickest ever circuit lap at the age of 55 - so age is no barrier to Schuey

And what age was Nigel Mansell when he won title on both sides of the Atlantic?

Who remembers the late great Graham Hill in the twilight of his career? Stick to developing road-going Ferraris, playing with motor bikes and your cameo appearances in sniff petrol Mikey Boy.
