Michael Schumacher looks concerned. He’s standing in front of the pit lane at the Paul Ricard circuit, surrounded by 19-time TT winner John McGuinness, 500cc great Randy Mamola, Moto2 young buck Pol Espargaro and, oddly, The Prodigy’s Keith Flint.
This is not a live action role-play of Biker Mice From Mars. Instead, it’s Michael’s idea of retirement; invite a couple of pals from the two-wheeled world to shoot the breeze, pop a couple of wheelies and have a very private track day away from prying eyes.
