Schumacher denies rumours  
 
Recently the highest salaries of famous sportsmen were published in several newspapers. Michael Schumacher came on the second place, just behind Golfplayer Tiger Woods. According to the newspapers Schumacher gets 50 milion dollar each year.
But the German went public and said that you shouldn't believe everything that's published in a newspaper. "If the journalists were doing there jobs a little bit better they would know that I don't earn that kind of money. Not in a long way!"
Michael Schumacher will still be the best earning Formula one driver next year, as he was for the last few years!

Crashed F50-GT  
 
What if...you're the lucky owner of one (of only three excisting) F50 GTs. Ofcourse you want to drive it around the track. That's just logic. But howfar would you go? Would you try to get everything out of the car? The owner of s/n 001 did. He went out on 'cold' tyres and pushed the car a little to hard. He spon out of a corner and...crashed. His reaction? 'race cars were meant to be crashed' ...
(btw. This all happend 3rd of August 2003...so it's a bit old news...but still, couldn't find much pics off it :) so just wanted to show it here!

Fisichella might test a Ferrari  
 
Jean Todt declared last weekend that Giancarlo Fisichella might test a Ferrari next year during private testing. It would be real joy for the Italian, who has always wanted to drive for the Scuderia.

Love those Brunei treads... :)  
 
Whenever I see a tread at a forum about the Sultan of Brunei I always look...and search. Search for new pics of his large and rare Ferrari collection. At FerrariChat I saw this picture, posted by Joop van der Meer, a blue (I repeat BLUE) Mythos!!! Isn't that amazing? I just remember seeing the Mythos once...at a carshow in The Netherlands...I found it stunning...sent a letter to Pininfarina and said that I loved the car so much...
Just a few weeks later I got a designfolder about it...with several extra pictures! Just love Pininfarina :D
Never new though that there was also a blue one....

Eurofighter beats Schumacher  
 
The Ferrari F2003-GA, with Michael Schumacher as driver, couldn't beat the Eurofigher jet. The plane, that could reach a highspeed of twice the speed of sound (in the air) was over the first 600 metres the slowest, but after 900 and 1200 metres could the pilot Maurizio Cheli overtake the Ferrari and was the first to cross the finishline at the Italian airport Grosetto.

John Bosch in 575 GTC  
 


The 39 year old Dutchmen John Bosch has been infected by the Ferrari virus for a long time. He not only owns several Formula one Ferraris, including the 2000 version of Michael Schumacher, he also drives them on the circuit.
He was also, last year, the European champion in the 360 Challenge.
And, together with another Dutch legend, Jan Lammers, he entered the 'Le Mans' serie with a Dome Judd (for Racing For Holland).
But John always wanted to race for Ferrari. And now he does! With his team, Barron Conner Racing, he will enter the 'Le Mans'-serie with two 575 GTCs. He will drive together with the American, and ex Indy 500 champion and Formula one winner, Danny Sullivan. For the second car he still searches for drivers.

The 'shakedown' of the cars will be on 19 and 22 Decembre at Fiorano. The debut of the team will be during the 12 Hours of Sebring on the 20th of March.
Other races they will compete in are the 1000 km of Monza (May 9), Nürenburgring (June 11), Silverstone (15 August), Spa (12 Septembre). And ofcourse...the 24 Hours of Le Mans!

Testing continious...  
 
Again two days of testing at Jerez in Spain for the Ferrari team. At December 3rd the Ferraris were not as quick as last week. All three testdrivers came in action...L. Badoer was the fastest Ferrari (1.18.830) which was good for the 5th place. He drove 75 laps. F. Massa (1.19.074) was 6th and drove 63 laps. L. Burti drove 42 laps and became 8th (1.19.554). Ralf Schumacher was the fastest...1.17.705.

Yesterday (the 4th) all cards were different. In the rain the Ferraris were the fastest. The first four:
1. L. Badoer Ferrari 1.25.439 (12 laps) -- 2. F. Massa Ferrari 1.26.059 (56 laps) -- 3. N. Heidfeld Jordan 1.26.545 (50 laps) -- 4. L. Burti Ferrari 1.26.666 (11 laps).
