Schumacher to test 2007 Ferrari again

August 11, 2009 11:06 IST

Michael SchumacherMichael Schumacher will test Ferrari's 2007 race car again this week in preparation for his return to Formula One as a replacement for the injured Felipe Massa.

"Schumacher has set up the test with the Italian car manufacturer's F1 Clienti department and is understood to be paying for the private session himself," said the official Formula One website.

It added that the German has arranged a two-day test at the Italian track, Mugello, from Tuesday.

The seven-times world champion, who had a day of testing in the F2007 at the circuit near Florence 10 days ago, cannot try out the F60 car before the European Grand Prix in Valencia on August 23 because track testing is banned during the season.
