Alonso Predicts Schumacher Comeback

New world champion Fernando Alonso insisted here Thursday that Germany's seven-time title winner Michael Schumacher can make a comeback next season despite his nightmare year in 2005. Schumacher saw his five-year reign at the top of the sport dramatically concluded this season after his Ferrari team slumped behind Alonso's Renault team and current championship runner-up Kimi Raikkonen's McLaren outfit. But Spaniard Alonso believes it is wrong to write of 84-race winner Schumacher in the future and said: "Michael is still Michael, he didn't change compared to previous seasons. "The Ferrari was not as strong any more and he didn't get the opportunity to win many races but for sure next year will be again the favourite one to start the championship."
