Schumacher return excites Alonso

FORMULA ONE: Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso is itching to renew his rivalry with returning seven-time champion Michael Schumacher.

Alonso ended Schumacher’s five-year winning run in 2005 and beat him again in 2006, which proved the German’s last season. “When Michael left it was not the same beating the others,” said Alonso. “To beat a legend is very motivating. Now he’s back it’s very special.”
