Indeed, I think there is something in your point - but I would also throw Hamilton into the equation as he was being talked up heavily at the time. Strong competition internally in the team, plus strong competition from outside, getting old, proved he was supreme, why continue?
Whilst I am pleased he is coming back, I don't understand why he is doing it.
Exactly, I don't think it was a question of motivation I think it was about him feeling like he'd done everything he needed to in the sport, but also not wanting the possibility of Raikkonen tarnishing his "greatest" status.

Everyone can come up with their own theory. Mine is that he is not coming back for the money, for the glory, out of loyalty, revenge, hidden agendas or anything. This is just about adrenalin. Would you blame him?
I agree. Schumacher never lost his competitive needs and that's why he's coming back now, also why he started doing the bike racing and couldn't leave F1 fully behind.

Suddenly some guys are going to make a bollock theory, saying that Kimi got a wake up call due to Micheal's arrival.
, But the truth is that Ferrari's car is vastly improved from the first race.
Yeah, but we can remind them that Raikkonen got a 2nd place finish before Schumi returned, so we're okay on that front.
