F1: Schumacher Trains For Return By Karting

"There is nothing better for my preparations at the moment." Schumacher said. (Photo:LAT Photographic) More Photos
His test in a 2009 Ferrari F60 blocked, Michael Schumacher instead turned to an Italian karting circuit to continue his preparation for his Formula One comeback.

Accompanied by Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer, the 40-year-old German traveled to the Lonato circuit in Italy.

"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," he said on his official website michael-schumacher.de.

"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," Schumacher explained.

The high ambient temperatures, meanwhile, pleased the local photographers, who were able to capture the results of Schumacher's weight-loss and training efforts as he walked the paddock topless.

"The fact that it has been boiling hot here is simulating the temperatures expected for Valencia," Schumacher added.

With the way these new F1 cars handle (well, lack of) I would guess he would need a Tony kart to get used to them Smile

Is it KZ1? With 2 radiators? First picture looks like Rotax, but there is also big radiator on other side.

Yep, KZ1. They have the extra radiator for cooling. Back in the day of the SKUSA ProMoto, guys would put 2 radiators on for cooling on the very hot days.

Gotta love those forward-facing air inlets. Nice to see something once in a while that looks like it belongs on a race piece.
