Seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher followed up the third-place on his motorbike race debut in Hungary last week with first place in Barcelona.

It is a bold departure to see Schumacher photographed in German tabloid daily Bild wearing a leather biker outfit in the pits rather than the familiar red of his former Formula One team Ferarri.

But the 39-year-old German is proving he is just as determined on two wheels as he is on four.

The German came out top in a 14-lap race in Spain last weekend to follow up his third place in a pro-amateur race in Hungary the week before.

Schumacher has become involved with motorbike racing after impressing 2007 MotoGP world champion Australian Casey Stoner last November.
