Ferrari want a third car. Good or bad?


For 20 euros you can buy a Michael Schumacher ‘Comeback’ cap from the official Formula One merchandise stands at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The longed-for return will not happen this season, with the retired seven times world champion thwarted by a neck injury from replacing injured Brazilian Felipe Massa at Ferrari, but his manager Willi Weber never misses a trick.

Some 10,000 caps were produced in expectation of the German’s comeback at Valencia this month and, if Ferrari are allowed to run a third car next season, Weber may have to order some more.

Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali has suggested that the 40-year-old could race a third car for the team next season.
