Looks like he can still steer too...
Schumacher still fastest on return to F1
Wednesday November 14, 8:22 AM
LONDON, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher came out of retirement on Tuesday to set the fastest lap in testing for Ferrari at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya.
The 38-year-old German, who will also be in action on Wednesday at the Spanish circuit, has no intention of returning to Formula One racing after quitting at the end of 2006 however.
Champions Ferrari have described the test as "half for pleasure, half for technical reasons".
Formula One's rules are changing next year, with traction control and other so-called 'driver aids' being removed, and Schumacher can give useful input as a driver who has raced cars with and without the systems.
Schumacher topped the unofficial timesheets, completing 64 laps in the F2007 car with a fastest lap of one minute 21.922 seconds. The circuit Web site (www.circuitcat.com) said 3,000 spectators attended the session.
The first test since the end of the season last month was also Schumacher's first serious outing in a Formula One car since the Brazilian Grand Prix of October 2006.
"It looks as though he's got talent. He will make his way to F1," quipped Red Bull's David Coulthard, at 36 the oldest active driver in Formula One, at the reappearance of his rival.

Have to agree with GD on this ( thats twice we've agreed this year GD) looks way too slow to be 5 secs off Pedro.
Still looking pretty good for a car geeza
