Michael Schumacher France formula one 2007

Guess who’s back ? , Michael Schumacher will render his services again to the Ferrari formula one team by testing for them. As electronic aids in F1 cars will soon be banned Ferrari wants to test cars without such aids. Michael Schumacher is by far the most experienced in driving such type of cars. The new ECU units shall not have aids such as traction control and other things which make driving a little bit easier. Michael’s manager insisted though that this is just part of his contract and there are as of now no plans to return to formula one racing full time.
Meanwhile a foundation Stone Ceremony was held¬ on third November 2007 in Abu Dhabi to officially signify the start of construction of one of the most multi-dimensional and highly anticipated themed entertainment attractions in the world, the Ferrari Theme Park.

Officials and special guests in attendance for the event included Ferrari’s President Luca di Montezemolo and Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, Chairman, ALDAR Properties, as well as invited guests representing media, government and business organizations from around the world.

During the Foundation Stone Ceremony a special time capsule was buried, containing a Conrod and Piston of the F2007, the F1 World Champion Ferrari car, together with the first artist’s impression of the Ferrari Theme Park on Yas Island. The capsule will be then opened again at Ferrari’s 100th anniversary, in 2047.

“This is a very special year for Ferrari” – Mr. Montezemolo said. “Together with the extraordinary commercial success of our GT cars, it brought to Maranello the F1 Constructors World Championship and the F1 Drivers World Championship with Kimi Raikkonen, and I am particularly proud to be present to mark the symbolic start of this great project. Moreover, 2007 is the year of Ferrari’s 60th anniversary, and this Ceremony has therefore a further, important meaning”.
