Mark Webber is surprised that Michael Schumacher's latest fall hasn't put him off motorcycle racing completely.

Although escaping serious injury, former seven time world champion Schumacher fell so heavily while testing in February that he had to call off his participation in this month's opening round of the German Superbike series.

"I too find those machines awesome," Red Bull driver Webber, 32, is quoted as saying by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"But race them? No thanks," he said.

Like Schumacher, the Australian is a friend of his compatriot Mick Doohan, the retired five time 500cc (MotoGP) champion.

"Mick warned me: until you get it right, you fall badly at least ten times. If you are young, that's part of your job, but when you're older you wouldn't advise it.

"Michael should listen," Webber said, "because Mick knows what he's talking about."
