Michael Schumacher fond of the Ferrari California

Before the debut of the Ferrari California at the October 2, 2008 Paris Auto Show, the seven time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher has been involved with the car since its beginning and has played an important role in tuning the cars performance parameters alongside Maranello's technicians, engineers, and test-drivers.
Previously Michael's expertise was used also on the 430 Scuderia and quoted as saying: " The cars are very different, but each offers unique driving pleasure because of the inherently sporty character of all Ferraris."
"The 430 Scuderia is, of course, a more extreme model with a focus on absolutely cutting-edge performance."
"The California is very much a grand tourer in terms of usability and comfort, but still sporty and fun to drive under any conditions."
Ferrari in a statement noted that Schumacher recently explained at its dealer convention in Maranello at the headquarters saying the differences between the eight-cylinders in the 430 Scuderia and the California.
"They were designed to meet different requirements," he said. "The 430 Scuderia is aimed at drivers who want the very essence of a Ferrari and will get it out on the track as often as they can," he stated. "The Ferrari California, on the other hand, is designed for everyday use and for weekends away whilst still guaranteeing all the emotional impact that only an authentic Ferrari can deliver."
I was unable to download an image of Michael Schumacher because now I have a problem with all images from Google image search. I'm going to go to my friend at the library to hopefully get help to resolve this problem. Sorry about that.
Have a good day and I wish you well.
