Michael Schumacher Crashes Ferrari Prototype

Written by tonks on July 28, 2008

SChumacher Next To Ferrari 430Michael Schumacher is a Ferrari motorsport champion and he is advancing his career by working with Ferrari to create a new Ferrari supercar that consumers will love. Ferrari had rented out the Nurburgring Nordschleiffe and it was where Schumacher took the test mule out for a test run. Schumacher has actually helped to develop the prototype – which was based on the 430 Scuderia.

Just days after taking laps around Fiorano in the new California and presenting it to dealers in Maranello, Schumacher reportedly went off the damp track at over 155 mph at the high-speed Schwedenkruz corner and hit a guard rail, severely damaging the car and forcing the test crew to switch to a second vehicle.

Sources say that Schumacher managed to come away unscathed though reports have not confirmed whether or not he was driving. He was in the car – but it is possible he was only riding shotgun.

Unfortunately we haven’t been given any details on what the prototype was for and what it will replace.
