By a sports newspaper this week, retired formula one driver Michael Schumacher has been spotted secretly turning laps in a go-kart.

‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ published a photo of the former Ferrari driver – wearing green and white overalls and his familiar red helmet, gloves and boots – clocking up miles at the ‘Garda Karting di Lonato’ circuit near Brescia in northern Italy.

The national daily reported that Schumacher, 37 – also sporting unfamiliar stubble – did three laps of the closed circuit on Tuesday and then drove close to all day in light rain on Wednesday.

It was reported last week that the German intends to contest a 24-hour kart race on his home circuit in Kerpen early next month.
