Michael Schumacher And Ducati

Michael Schumacher surprised few including himself with his speed on his return to the Ferrari F1 car after over a year away. He topped the timesheets on both Tuesday and Wednesday tests in Barcelona. This is not a Michael Schumacher fan site, but one has to give it to him, he has the racing in blood. And it seems it does not matter whether it is on 4 or 2 wheels. During his recent run on Ducati MotoGP motorbike, Michael Schumacher recorded a lap only 6 second slower than the current MotoGP champion Casey Stoner… See the video.

As David Coulthard said the other day, making case for himself too:

“It shows that age does not matter – if he was back in Formula One, he would be at the front. If McLaren is still looking for a driver, Michael would be a fantastic solution. Just as Paul McCartney can never unlearn great music, Michael will never forget how to drive a car damn fast.”

    Yes I don’t think knowledge learned will ever be forgotten. I was surprised at how quickly I remembered both sports, music and languages after several years away from it.

    Michael IS an amazing driver and I respect that. Schumacher was one of my favorite drivers to watch, but I never routed for him.

    I was told few days back, that this was not the first time Schumi rode the Ducati on track. I probably missed the first attempt, that allegedly did not go too well and Schumi was rather slow. He did some practice before doing the stunt featured in the video above.

    but still, he can ride bike better than anybody I know :-)

  4. Thank you for a fantastic video and photos of schumi with the Ascari circuit, i have been to La Rhonda in Spain its a lovely place.
