Lotus try and fail to recruit Michael Schumacher for the last two races.

What I found interesting was the comment by Schumacher's rep:

Quote:
Confirming that Schumacher had been approached by Lotus, the 44-year-olds manager, Sabine Kehm, told German newspaper Bild: There have been quite a few requests in the past. Michael would still be fit enough but he has a new life.

I dont find it unusual that people ask Michael. Many people change their assessment about Michael because of Nico Rosbergs recent performances compared to those of Lewis Hamilton. Michael drove as well as Nico, just as Nico is driving as well as Lewis.

bizarre comment from his publicist....
I figured he'd say no due to really looking like he's past it after a year off...

Maybe Rubens will get that comeback he's wanted.... or JV?

Unusually, the Daily Fail has a good short piece on Kubica's enduring injury problems. He still holds his injured wrist in his good hand, and he cannot rotate his wrist.

I'll do it, and for far less than they'd have to pay Schumi.

True. I notice that Kimis situation with the team was just ridiuclous...I think if it was any other time, someone in F1 would regulate and control what's going on. Normally they're so controlling of every single thing that goes on..

Heikki Kovalainen is hired to replace Kimi for the last two races, says Finnish media who broadcast F1. They should announce this officially later today afternoon. Lotus and Caterham were negotiating details late last night.

Lotus pursued also Hulkenberg and Schumi, but failed.
