Seems like F1 is running out of fresh blood... Characters like RS are long forgotten for good reason. Why bother writing about them anymore. Go ahead bring Alex Wurz, DC out of the attic too. I guess Shuey started this retrograde fashion but I am tired of this old faces

This seems to be ralf jumping on the "Schumacher returns" bandwagon , why give a guy like ralf this chance when there are better guys who have not had their chan e in top cars- not saying that the stefan gp machine will be top/middle or bottom.
But what I am refering to is Antony davidson who so sorely derserves another go at f1 and not in the commentery box.

Why does everyone seem to hate Ralf Schumacher so much? He won 6 races for christ sake in a Williams that was NEVER the best car at the time, give him a chance and stop bashing him

Why not give a chance to someone new who has future in F1. I mean RS was average in Toyota and below average in DTM. In the best case how many years do you think he will last in F1 if he joins it now

james, agreed. ralf, whilst never wdc material, has the expeience, particularly with the toyota, which this is. he also knows most of the workforce. and he is a hell of a lot better than the likes of valles, lopez, "senna", petrov etc etc. my only question is, how will stefan get on the grid????

This all seems VERY underhand.

The FIA granted entry to USF1 & Campos (instead of well organised & well funded organisations such as Lola & Prodrive), & now it seems that both are struggling to even get to the first race. Meanwhile, Stefan GP appears from nowhere with what would have been the 2010 Toyota. If they are allowed in, then the FIA needs to take a good hard look at itself, & I dare say other parties might want to question their motives.

This definately looks like Ecclestone is behind this.

Very dodgy indeed!

Ralf driving for Stefan GP ?
Would be a good option for both. StefanGP has a driver who is experienced and who knows the team. And Ralf could improve his damaged reputation. He is way better than most people think. Also he is not very old (34 year old)if you compare him with other F1 drivers (de la Rosa for example who is 39 years old).
So he would be a clearly better choice than young drivers like Piquet Jr, Grosjean, Alguersuari, Yamamoto, Ide etc.
