Schumacher scores debut podium on Honda Fireblade

Ex-F1 puts in stunning performance in first-ever superbike race

SQUARE-jawed F1 uber- Michael Schumacher bagged his first podium finish in a motorcycle race yesterday when he raced a Honda Fireblade to third place in the SKOOX Cup at the Pannoniaring circuit in Germany.
Clocking a fastest-race lap time of 2m 1. 309 (2m flat in qualifying), Schumacher was third behind winner Martin Bauer and Andreas Meklau in the superstock-rules championship.

Schumacher was riding a bike usually campaigned by IDM champion Martin Farmer in the German championship, but according to race watchers was aggressive on track right from the start - earning him the incredible podium finish in a fraught race.

Team boss Mike Wohner said that it was impossible to talk to Schumacher immediately before the race, because he was so nervous, he said: “I noticed that Schumi was extremely focused before the race. His tactics were pretty simple, he was going to ride the race completely on full attack. He also admitted to me that his nervousness level was high."
that's german for he was sh@tting himself
Some people are just born with too much talent
Remember Meklau in WSB on the Ducati 888

There's a rumor going around that he's going to race for one of the Moto GP race as a wild card. But again, it's just a rumor...

Highly unlikely, but it's nice that he's racing bikes, just as Vale like to race cars.

n an older interview, he lauded motorcycle racers because he said it required a great deal of physical aptitude. Kudos to him, he may be an sometimes, but you don't ge to be the best by being nice to the other racers.

Dood, if duhamel and roger hayden ran as wild car i don't see why Shummi will not.

I am just recovering from my last two surgeries (2/7/08 and 3/2/08), i spent a month in the hospital, i am back at home just recovering. The worst is my digestive system is all messed up since i didn't have no food or drinks for a month either and i lost tons of weight but tryng to get back in shape. Thanks for asking

That is amazing, and I would LOVE to see him race wild card, though honestly I wouldn't expect even close to the same results. I haven't watchs WSB for a while, but I guess I should start again...
