WITH HOT rumours circulating the F1 paddock that he'll be gone from Mercedes before the end of the year, former F1 giant Michael Schumacher has returned to two wheels to test a couple of superbikes at the Sachsenring

It's reported the 41-year-old tested KTM and Honda racing bikes after flying out to the track in his personal jet.

Schumacher, who competed in several rounds of last year's IDM German superbike championship, aborted his planned motorcycle racing career after suffering serious neck injuries while testing at Cartegena racetrack, Spain.

The German was warned by many close friends, including multiple 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan and current F1 sensation Mark Webber, that a career in motorcycle racing at 41 was not a good idea.
