I don't think Michal would loose any thing at all because he is a legend now and if he returns it is only for a temporary base also him against Hamilton or most probably Vettel comparision only gave confidence to these two young drivers even if he lost to them there are reason for that present at this very moment. First he is out of racing for 2+ years and the car is not up to the level. On the otherside if he wins against them it will prove that he still have the momentum under his belt and he really retires at his prime. Also he will replacing a driver who is in this team because of his support and that will becomes a good will gesture for him may be this act could wipe some of his previous actions from people's mind. We already have a similar incident when Mansell comes in the William's in'94 as a replacement to the late Ayrton Senna and he had proved that he still had some thing to show as racing driver.
BMW is now out of next season does FIA allows any of the reserve teams on the list to be enter in the next season or if BMW would sold their team to Sauber could Sauber be allowed to race on BMW's entry like Brawn replaced Honda this year.
One thing I have to point out about Massa's incident for some reason the car have break because when the spring hit Massa, he was going about 162mph while at the time of crash in the wall his speed have comes down to 62mph that means a decelaretion of 100mph occurred in just seconds and that too with almost no braking because the assumption is Massa lost consiciousness just after the impact can you guess how could the braking been done also after the impact the throttle was at it's maximum even in the graphic with the onboard camerashot shows throttle at full while brake was null.
