Though we're sure Ferrari wishes Schumi were returning to the cockpit of one of their racers, he will actually be contesting the Race of Champions this December at the new Wembley Stadium. The now-retired septuple F1 World Champion has done the RoC before, in 2004, when he was beat by current Renault F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen, but he did beat rally driver Sebastian Loeb in a one-up rally heat. After turning Wembley's field into a tarmac track, 18 drivers from F1, Rally, NASCAR, Champ Car, Le Mans, Touring Cars, Dakar Rally Raids, and X-Games riders will compete in one-on-one heats to be declared the Champion of Champions. This year's race will also feature a national shootout between Jenson Button representing England, and David Coulthard racing for Scotland.
