Schumacher's Track Day

While the rest of F1 is observing a testing ban as a cost-cutting measure. Michael Schumacher has to get out his own personal cheque book.

He has to hire a 2007 car for a test day and pay for it himself including the petrol.
This is in order not to to infringe the ban on testing a 2009 specification car imposed on all the teams.

Should his neck not hold up he may not be able to claim this hire cost against expenses, as a failure to pass the impending medical will mean Ferrari have to look elsewhere for a substitute driver. This may prove difficult as the testing will not be wholly in connection with his profession. Rules, rules rules.

By the way track days are great fun.
