This morning Michael Schumacher drove the first laps in Ferrari's F2006 at Fiorano. At 9.24 the German drove out of the Fiorano pitbox, Ferrari's home track, with bits of snow here and there around the track.
Schumacher will be testing the 2006 car this week at Fiorano. The new car will be important for Ferrari's fight for the title after losing the title to Renault in 2005
Michael Schumacher has debuted Ferrari's all-new, and unique looking, 2006 F1 race car. At Fiorano near Maranello HQ just after nine o'clock, the unliveried car - sporting several visual changes compared to the 'F2005' - pulled out of the pits for a first run. By lunch, with even a bit of snow falling, 37-year-old Schumacher - who won only the ill-fated US grand prix with the new car's predecessor - had completed as many as 35 laps, according to reports. Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo is on hand to witness the racer's first 'shake down test', ahead of the launch on 24 January. At first inspection, the new scarlet racer - likely to be designated 'F2006' - is showing off a more swooping nose, and wing mirrors uniquely mounted on the side pods.
