  • Schumacher shocks - on a MotoGP bike!

    Found on another forum, thought I would post on here.
    Old news now? considering it is Tuesday...
    The German legend had previously made a cautious
    MotoGP

    debut on a 990cc Ducati

    during a secret test at Mugello in October of 2005, but the now retired F1

    ace picked a much more public 'press and guest' test for his second appearance - and didn't disappoint.

    Just one day after the season-ending Valencian Grand Prix, Schumacher took to the same twisty Spanish circuit on board Casey Stoner's 800cc Desmosedici, which won the 2007 MotoGP World Championship and finished second behind Honda's Dani Pedrosa in the season finale.

    And, while 'Schumi' had been a distant 18 seconds a lap off MotoGP race pace at Mugello 2005, he put in an incredible performance during his 800cc debut at Valencia - charging around the Spanish track in a best lap time just five seconds behind Pedrosa's race record of 1min 32.748secs!

    That's just wrong! Firstly that he was able to get within 5 seconds, and secondly, for Stoner to let him take his bike like that!

                I guess when it comes down to it the guy would have awesome fitness, insane reaction times, an instinct for speed and grip, masterful knowledge of race lines, etc.

                            Should be Rossi on a Ducati, not Schumacher

                              My 80 year old Nanna would be faster than Team Roberts.
