Mar.27 (GMM) Michael Schumacher's manager has played down fears about the retired seven time world champion's new foray into the world of semi-professional motorcycle racing.
It was reported recently that the German made his amateur debut at the Pannonia-Ring in Hungary.It has now emerged that Schumacher, 39, was again in action while the formula one world focused on the Malaysian grand prix over the Easter weekend.His latest races were at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain, Bild newspaper reports.His former Ferrari team boss and friend Jean Todt said last weekend that he "absolutely" does not support Schumacher's dangerous new hobby.But Schumacher's long time manager, Willi Weber, reacted: "I have no fears for him."He always knows what he is doing and what risks he can take."Just like in formula one, anything can go wrong, but a Michael Schumacher leaves nothing to chance," he added.Schumacher, meanwhile, has been very competitive in his two amateur rides so far, causing speculation to linger that his professional racing return could be on two wheels."Quite honestly, it is still too early to answer that," Weber said when asked if MotoGP could be the German legend's goal.
