ACCORDING to Schuberth, the multiple Formula 1 world champion, Michael Schumacher, will be spearheading the development of their sports motorcycle helmets.

Starting with the ‘Schuberth Race’ helmet, Michael will bring his wealth of experience to the German firm’s R&D department in order to develop new models. This arrangement continues a partnership between the German brand and the seven-time F1 champion who developed and used Schuberth helmets until he retired from the sport.

Schumacher explains the continued relationship: ‘Throughout my time in Formula 1, I really appreciated just how fast and accurately the people at Schuberth were able to work. Attention to detail has always been particularly important to me, and I don’t intend to leave anything to chance in the future either.’

I don't think he's doing anyone out of a job.  He's just a strong endorsement, and always had a tie in with Schuberth.  He caused a stir when he started wearing their lids in F1, because he was contracted to one of the other big manufacturers at the time.

Will they now have extra long chinpieces?

WTF is your problem. I presume you are one of those people who complain that he is even racing a bike.

Let me guess, you also hate Ewan & Charlie's adventures as well??

I could be wrong, but I'm lead to believe that he has a stake in the company

I'd heard he had a full dinner - with bread and butter.
