Schumacher stops Ferrari testing till new car

Rubens Barrichello and Luca Badoer will do all the testing of the current Ferrari F1 car until the new car is launched in January. Schumacher said "I will resume testing only when the new car is ready, there's no need to work on further improvements to the old car."

He also went on to say that he is not returned to full fitness yet: "I still can't follow my normal training programme. No-one can say at the moment how long this will last."
