Schumacher takes to karting for further preperations

By on

Michael Schumacher has taken to karting now that his test with the Ferrari F60 was made impossible. Schumacher and Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer were present at the Lonato karting circuit in Italy as to get more seat time in a race chassis, although not quite a single seater like the one he'll be driving in Valencia later this month.

Writing in his personal website, Schumacher said, "Karting has a very good training effect, that is why today I just jumped into a testing day of the Tony Kart team in Lonato. There is nothing better for my preparations at the moment, in terms of steering wheel forces for example karting is even more difficult than Formula One. The fact that it has been boiling hot here is simulating the temperatures expected for Valencia."
