Michael Schumacher Shows Off Ferrari California On The Nürburgring

Illustration for article titled Michael Schumacher Shows Off Ferrari California On The Nürburgring

As much as we'd like to see retired F1 champ Michael Schumacher grab a Ferrari by the neck and toss it around the Green Hell, that's not what happened here. Rather, this clip shows a bit of the recent Ferrari Racing Days at the Nürburgring in which Schumi shills for the new Ferrari California by cruising around the modern racing section of the track. That's right, there's no on-board footage of a hot lap around the old Nordschleife, but that's probably a good thing as far as Ferrari is concerned, since the decidedly soft California would probably only make an embarrassment of itself. Video after the jump.

It's not that it's not a great car, it is after all a prancing horse, it's just that it's not ...... special, it kinda looks like we've seen it before and we want more from one of the biggest of the big boys. It's a bit 'normal'.

I described it to a friend the other day as " You know a Mazda RX8, well it's like that only take away the suicide doors" which to describe a Ferrari is a little sad.

I guess I'm just underwhelmed by it.
