    Yes silly season is in full swing. PitPass reported Patrick Head when speaking to the Daily Mail about who might be filling the empty seat at McLaren suggested Michael Schumacher, "Michael's still fit, and probably bored. I suspect he has found sitting on the pit wall dull.

    "Ron Dennis has proved to be a lateral thinker, which is why I am musing over the idea that he might look to Schumacher." :)

    I suspect the only thing worse to some people here on this board would be for MS to McLaren and Alonso to Ferrari.

    Not very likely but I would like to see the look on Hamilton's face if they announced that! :)

    On a different tack report in autosport about the second Mclaren seat. Last paragraph made me laugh

    Silly season indeed in full swing. I think this was inteded as a joke. Why would MS join Mclaren anyway? Money it not an issue, he's making ~$40m in retirement, and Ferrari was arguably the better car in the second half of the season. MS knows better and knows R Dennis well... he doesn't give #1 status to former WDC.;)

    BTW what the hell does Patrick Head know about Mclaren..? Last time I checked he was still a co-owner of Williams!

    I can't imagine MS doing it but it would be interesting.

    If he soundly beat Hamilton he could then claim to be better than Alonso (who couldn't accomplish that), while showing at the same time that he can go up against the best in equal cars. BUT if he lost to LH, everyone would say "see I told you he can't compete with anyone other than 2nd rate teammates". Probably too much to lose for him to try it. He definitely doesn't need the money... :)

    MS is having too much fun chaseing the old lady around his houses. He is enjoying the good life and he deserves it.

    He doesn't, he's just got a wicked sense of humour & is making excellent mischief with the press for a laugh... ! :D
