Schumacher back for Ferrari next week

Schumacher back for Ferrari next week
Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher will return to testing action for Ferrari next week, when he participates in the team’s final pre-season test at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya.

Schumacher, who last tested in late 2007, will join Kimi Raikkonen in Spain on Monday, as Ferrari begin a three-day session to finalise their on-track preparations for the coming season with their F2008 machine.

Meanwhile, Ferrari wound up their current Barcelona session on Friday, with Felipe Massa and official tester Luca Badoer carrying out a full race-weekend simulation, starting with the third free practice session, followed by the three qualifying sessions and the Grand Prix, along with all the relevant trackside procedures.

Massa successfully completed the simulation. Badoer, however, had to stop in the final race stint because of an oil leak. Massa ultimately completed 95 laps, with a best time of 1m 20.508s, while Badoer managed 75, his fastest a 1m 21.808s.

Schumacher to test for Ferrari next week

LONDON (Reuters) - Retired seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher will test Ferrari's 2008 car in Spain next week along with reigning Formula One champion Kimi Raikkonen, the team said on Friday.

A spokesman said the 39-year-old German would join Raikkonen at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya on Monday before handing over to Brazilian Felipe Massa for the final test before the season starts in Australia on March 16.

"We wanted to give Felipe a rest and Michael was available to drive," said the spokesman.

Schumacher has taken part in several tests for Ferrari since he retired at the end of the 2006 season, with his last outing in December.

Monday will be his first time behind the wheel of the car that Raikkonen will use to defend the championship he won in Brazil last October.
