Valentino Rossi has been testing Michael Shumacher's 2004 Ferrari F1 car at the Fiorano Ferrari test track in Northern Italy.
Reports suggest he was off to good start, lapping within three seconds of record pace. But he ended up in a gravel trap and had to be towed out.
" It was beautiful to be Schumacher for a day, " Rossi told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
But is this the start of an interesting challenge? Schumacher rides bikes. MCN has been approached in the past to lend him one when he was in the UK for previous British GPs. Anyone fancy a head-to-head? Rossi 10 laps in the F1 car and 10 laps on his MotoGP bike followed by Schumacher doing the same ? best combined time wins.
Well, we can dream.
See MCN, out on Wednesday for Rossi?s full reaction to his drive.
