Schumacher and Malaysia

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER should be back in action in a Ferrari on October 7 when he is scheduled to have another test at the team's Fiorano testing facility. After the test Schumacher will decide whether or not he is fit enough to return for the Malaysian Grand Prix on October 17.

Schumacher did not appear at the European Grand Prix but did attend a karting event on the Thursday before the race. He is still walking with a pronounced limp and there are no guarantees that he will be back in action in Malaysia as the normal healing process - which takes between 12 and 16 weeks - may have been extended by the fact that Michael did some damage to ligaments when he tried to return to testing too quickly.
