Jet fighter downs Schu: Hats off to people who are willing to waste massive amounts of taxpayer money to do geeky stuff like this.

An Italian Air Force fighter jet defeated Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari 2-1 today in three races down a military airport’s rain-soaked runways.

Schumacher’s Ferrari F2003-GA proved to be a nose faster than pilot Maurizio Cheli’s Eurofighter Typhoon in the first race of 600 metres. The plane then easily won the last two races of 1200 and 900m.
