Ralf Schumacher kinks his neck
RALF SCHUMACHER had a fairly sizeable accident in Estoril at the weekend, wiping the two front wheels off his car as the result of a brake failure. The chassis was taken back to England and was repaired in the course of Monday while the team sent another chassis out for the final testing in Valencia.
Schumacher was suffering from a sore neck on Monday but he should be fully fit in time for the Australian GP. Ralf is expected to fly out to Australia at the end of the week to have time to become acclimatized to the time changes in Melbourne.
