Michael Schumacher has allegedly been caught for speeding. The former F1 champion was caught speeding on a highway near his hometown of Kerpen, Germany, although it is unclear what speed he was doing when he was caught. Police have confirmed that he was stopped for speeding in a 100 km/h zone and local media reports believe he was doing speeds of around 140 km/h. Had he been doing more than 146 km/h, he would have automatically have lost his license.
Schumacher was driving an Audi Cabriolet at the time and was handed a 75 Euro fine along with three points for the infraction.
“I am really sorry,â€ Schumacher said to German newspaper Bild. “It is out of character for me. Speeding should be for race tracks only.â€
