I’m sure I heard a story of a policeman pulling over a van in Surrey or somewhere like that and it was MS in it…

Rosberg had a shiny new Mercedes in a training video he posted last week. His garage was also shown in the video, and right next to his neck training machine, was an embarrassing celest green (think Bianchi bicycles) Harley Davidson…23rd March 2011, 2:12 at 2:12 am #163766nikMember
I remember seeing the ad online for Jenson’s Veyron
he commented that he was selling it because the upkeep costs were high, and he didn’t get many opportunities to drive it
does anybody know if he ended up selling it?23rd March 2011, 3:32 at 3:32 am #163767
@VettelS – Around the time that the picture first appeared online, i read that the 430 Scuderia was his, but i don’t know if he currently owns it.
Schumacher had a whole host of Ferrari’s (550, 575, 599) and other Fiat group “company” cars during his Marranello days, and he was often out spoken about the various Fiat cars he used as daily drivers, especially Croma and Fiat 500 Abarth. Of course now when he is asked what he drives, he talks only about Merc’s..
I have never seen a comprehensive or detailed list of what Schumacher has in his collection, as it seems to be kept very private. But what is known is that he has substantial storage space at the house he built in 2005 at Lake Geneva, Switzerland. The eight-bedroom house has its own petrol reservoir for his fleet of cars, and are all housed in an underground garage beneath the house.23rd March 2011, 15:43 at 3:43 pm #163768

Do Kimi still have his Enzo with him?24th March 2011, 5:08 at 5:08 am #163770GeeMacParticipant
I always feel really sorry for the Renault drivers being forced to drive Laguna’s when the other guys get all manner of exotic metal to play with.
Wasn’t there a famous story that when Alonso left McLaren to go back to Renault he had to give back is McLaren Mercedes SLR 722, and Renault gave him a Laguna. That would suck…24th March 2011, 5:38 at 5:38 am #163771
There was mention at the press event for Infiniti sponsoring Red Bull, that they’d given Vettel some atrocious Infiniti SUV abomination.
@Chick0, the pics of Schumacher’s house were interesting. Not my style, but I’d certainly take it if it were given to me!24th March 2011, 19:22 at 7:22 pm #163772dennisParticipant
Britney’s new ride was in the german tabloids today.

That was just his loaner from Mercedes in Australia. He tweeted a pic of that earlier in the week, and said he’d like one for home as well.25th March 2011, 0:16 at 12:16 am #16377425th March 2011, 22:15 at 10:15 pm #163775butterdoriParticipant
Now that it’s Lotus-Renault, will they be getting better cars?26th March 2011, 1:40 at 1:40 am #163776The Last PopeParticipant
No, They get the choice of either a Proton Savvy or a Lada Kalina :P
