Michael Schumacher continued his for a potential Formula One comeback with a second day of karting in northern Italy.

"We had two very good Karting days in Lonato," the seven time world champion wrote on his website Thursday. "Arms, upper body, shoulders, neck - an excellent practice indeed."

The German, who was joined by Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer, is attempting to determine his fitness level ahead of a possible return at the European Grand Prix in two weeks time.

While Schumacher has been named as a replacement for the injured Felipe Massa, there are questions as to whether or not the 40 year old will be physically fit to return to racing. His spokesperson, Sabine Kehm, has indicated that a lingering neck injury could scuttle all his plans.

Schumacher injured his neck in a motorcycle testing accident earlier this year. He is expected to undergo a complete physical in the next few days.
