Schumacher signs sponsorship deal

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER has signed a sponsorship agreement with Piaggio Aero Industries and will sport the company's logo on his helmet in Austria this weekend.

The logo, a stylized letter 'P', will be situated on Schumacher's helmet and the move comes after the Italian company supplied the German driver's Ferrari team with two P180 Avanti aeroplanes.

"I am happy to have reached this agreement," Schumacher said. "For me, Piaggio Aero Industries manages to perfectly encapsulate Italian style and the most advanced technology."
