Schuey Admits He Is Unlikely To Test In 2009

Michael Schumacher, statistically the greatest racing driver of all time has admitted to a German newspaper that he thinks testing the Ferrari F1 car in 2009 is becomingly a less likely prospect.

Schumacher, who won 7 F1 world titles 5 with Ferrari undertook testing work on the slick tyres driving an F2008 during last season.  However with increasing in-seasonn testing restrictions, Schumacher doesn’t see himself as a priority tester.

Not just concerned for his own lack lack of miles, Michael, now 40 years of age reckons that Ferrari test drivers Luca Badoer and Marc Gene will have little testing to do as the main race drivers familiarise themselves with the new car.

“These next weeks and tests are now for preparation of the entire season,” Schumacher told Express

Schumacher will be competing in the German Superbike championships this year.
