Mr. Schumacher and his Ferrari

My wife’s mechanic moved to my country a couple of years ago from Switzerland. He told me he often saw Mr. Schumacher drive his 550. I was just wondering if any one here knows if he personally drives a paddle or a stick?

:question:

12 cylinders or walk

I live 15min from his house (in Vufflens-le-Chateau not his new house in Gland) but I have never sees his 550. There are rather rare overhere.

I was on vacation once in Norway, on the same mountain where he has his vacation-home. But it was on the other side of the mountain, and I never heard a 550 pass.

Titanium 575 F1

Local dealer told me that's what he drives this year. He also got a bright blue Alfa-Romeo 156 GTA but I bet he does not put that many miles on it ...

I know people who have seen him shopping for groceries in Morges, filling up at a gas station, or play soccer with the local team. The guy is just trying to have a normal life, and the beauty of living here is that people tend to leave celebrities alone and don't bother them.

Lugano is not quite nearby, 380km/3.5 hours drive, a complete waste of time if your only motivation is to spot Schumi around.
