Schumi overtaken

BERLIN - Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher's return to Formula One at the age of 41 was a "huge personal error", according to his former boss Eddie Jordan.

It was Jordan who first handed the German his chance in Formula One, signing him up as a driver for his Jordan team in 1991 when Schumacher was 19 years old.

But Jordan said the legendary driver's return to a young man's sport was a miscalculation.

"Michael Schumacher's return was an excellent thing for the discipline, but for him personally, it's a huge error," Jordan told Sport Bild.

"To make a comeback at 41 years of age, to pitch yourself against men 20 years younger than you, is simply against the laws of physics and medicine."
