Six times F1 world champion, Michael Schumacher is reportedly in the 'dog house' at Ferrari, following his WRC stunt, when Subaru star, Petter Solberg gave him a high-speed ride in the Impreza WRC.

The 'secret ride' took place during Schumi's winter holiday, the German travelling to the Norway-Sweden border, to get his 'fix of speed', however according to reports in British newspaper The People on Sunday, the Scuderia's management was less than impressed with news of his antics.

The tabloid paper notes that Schumi has: "enraged Ferrari bosses after risking his life and another world championship - by going high-speed rallying".

"The ride wasn't just a spin round the block either," added the paper, "The stage lasted for around 15 miles and with no pace notes to hand it could have ended in a horror smash."

The incident, which was reported last week by The Times left Michael, according to his 'chauffeur' Solberg, "jumping up and down like crazy".

Ferrari team boss, Jean Todt and technical director, Ross Brawn though are reportedly far from jumping up and down with delight, and believe that the German should not put himself in harms way unnecessarily, especially when so much is at stake.

Are Ferrari right to be annoyed? Have your say in the Crash.net forum...
