Michael SchumacherAs reported on SportingLife.com

Martin Whitmarsh, McLaren’s F1 CEO, admits F1 will face a period of adjustment once the German has departed, he does whole heartedly believe F1 will survive in its post-Schumi era. “Inevitably, (Schumi) has a following, particularly in Germany – but on the other hand, as one door closes another opens,” he told Autosport.

“I think that with Nico (Rosberg), Lewis (Hamilton), Gary (Paffett), Heikki (Kovalainen) and (Nelson) Piquet (Jr), we’ve got an interesting rush of new blood, and I am sure those guys will be exciting to see as they develop.

Interestingly he forgot to mention Robert Kubica, the rookie who reached the podium in his third race. But then, that is not we are talking about.

We are talking about Michael Schumacher and Formula 1 next season. No doubts a lot has already been written about it and we don’t want to be repetitive. So we’ll say it once and for all.

The sports will go ahead, undoubtedly, even without Michael Schumacher, but it is going to take at least 2-3 races next season for the reality to sink-in. That’s our take on the subject, feel free to write yours.

Nelson Piquet Jr

Nelson Piquet Jr, the GP2-driving son of Brazil’s triple world champion, has moved into pole position to replace Heikki Kovalainen in the Renault test seat of 2007. With his Finnish predecessor set to score the plum race seat, the 21-year-old [Piquet Jr] is not only linked with the third driver role, but he has already signed a contract, according to the French portal ‘Le Blog Auto’.

It is additionally reported that Sir Frank Williams, who once tested the actually German-born Piquet Junior, was also interested in signing him, while recent rumours suggested that the rookie could be eying a race seat debut for a small team.

With Kovalainen moving to drivers seat for Renault next season, I guess that very much brought end to Kimi-moving-to-Renault theory.
