Apr.4 (GMM) Michael Schumacher's motorcycle racing foray continued on Thursday, when he tested for the Italian MotoGP team Ducati at Mugello.
The retired seven time formula one world champion got the call-up after the team's regular test rider, Vittoriano Guareschi, fell on day two of the three day test and knocked his coccyx (tailbone).But Schumacher, the 39-year-old German, insisted: "I repeat it very clearly that I have no intention at all to step into any kind of MotoGP competitions."His successor at Ferrari, reigning world champion Kimi Raikkonen, commented at the Bahrain circuit on Thursday that he had heard about Schumacher's MotoGP tests and would like to do the same one day."I never tried road racing. I have done motocross often and that is more normal for me," said the Finn."For sure I want to try the MotoGP bikes once, but we'll see," Raikkonen added.
