F1: Mick Schumacher to drive Ferrari SF90 at Bahrain test



Mick Schumacher will get his first experience of Formula One as he drives for Ferrari and Alfa Romeo in Bahrain testing.

The 20-year-old driver was crowned European Formula 3 champion in 2018 and he has been competing in Formula 2 races since the beginning of this season.

"I am obviously more than excited and would like to thank Ferrari for giving me this opportunity", Mick Schumacher said.

In this Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 filer, Mick Schumacher prepares for the test drive in his new formula 2 Prema racing vehicle at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This will be Schumacher's first real outing on a Formula 1 circuit after he signed with Ferrari Driver Academy back in January. "Collaborating with two such promising drivers is great news for our team, and we look forward to working together".

Michael won 7 world titles, 5 of which were for Ferrari. He also won a record 91 grands prix.

With him idolising his father, Schumacher will be delighted to be able to make his Formula 1 test debut with the constructors his father enjoyed a memorable relationship with.

Mick Schumacher looks set to drive not one but two separate formula one cars at the post-Bahrain GP test. He has not appeared in public since sustaining severe head injuries in a skiing accident in late 2013.

"We are firm believers in the value of the Ferrari Driver Academy as a high level training programme for talented youngsters", Ferrari chief Mattia Binotto said.

"We are therefore very pleased to be able to give Mick and Callum the opportunity to experience driving a Formula 1 auto". May be held a further two days of testing for young drivers.
