    "Michael Schumacher was beaten in a head-to-head race against a Eurofighter jet in Italy on Thursday.

    The challenge took place at the Italian Aeronautica Militare air base at Grosseto and saw Schumacher’s Ferrari F2003-GA race the jet over three separate distances.

    Schumacher was quicker over 600 metres – clocking 9.4s to the jet’s 9.6s – but lost out over longer runs of 900m and 1200m.

    The Typhoon IPA2 was fractionally quicker in the middle run (13s dead opposed to the Ferrari’s 13.2s) but was a whole 2.5s faster over 1200m, clocking just 14.2s. " MASON

    Maybe Michael left the parking brake on. That happens to me sometimes.

    Staying true to the tight course of Monaco, lets see how well the Tornado plane does against Schumi in the F1 car! ;) Bloody airplanes(!), its almost as bad as those dragster kids with honda's and lambo's bragging over quarter mile times. Then the approach a corner and... ooppps, some kid needs a new fender. ;)

    The rain ruined it. Dry would have been nice to see. Wet is poop.
