However, according to information from F1-Insider.com, this is not true. The management has denied the corresponding report also to this website.

There has been speculation about an upcoming Formula 1 debut at Haas or Alfa for quite some time. Experts assume that the son of Michael Schumacher will get his first F1 appearance within a GP weekend this year.

But: Mugello does not lend itself to this. The track is new and super fast for everyone involved. In addition, Schumacher junior is in the middle of the title battle in Formula 2.

Three Ferrari juniors are at the top of the junior class table: Callum Ilott (GB) leads with 149 points, Mick Schumacher is second with 143 points, Robert Shwartzman (RUS) third with 140 points. Most recently, Schumi junior clinched his first victory of the season in Monza and has been on the podium five times in a row

Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto has therefore opened the battle for the Formula 1 cockpits at the Haas and Alfa Romeo customers. “All three deserve a place in Formula 1,” he said. “But the second half of the season will be decisive.”

However, it cannot be ruled out that Mick Schumacher will drive a classic Ferrari of his father as part of the celebrations for the 1000th Ferrari GP in Mugello. Michael Schumacher won five world championship titles with Ferrari.
