Mick Schumacher will not only test for Alfa Romeo in Bahrain, but also for Ferrari. After twelve years, a “Schumi” will finally be sitting in a Ferrari car again.
In 2009, Michael Schumacher climbed into a Ferrari for the last time as part of a testing program. Well, ten years later his son Mick Schumacher takes over. Only a few days ago, ABMS & F1 Insider revealed in an exclusive news report that the German Junior pilot will test drive an F1 Alfa Romeo in Bahrain. Now we can also confirm reports from “Autosport”, that Schumi junior will also test a Ferrari on the Bahrain tracks!

Mick Schumacher will also get support from Sebastian Vettel. “I won’t give him tips how to drive, certainly not!” says the Ferrari star in an interview with SPORT BILD Special. “But there are many things that I can pass on to him thanks to my greater experience. Best of all, he collects his own experience. Besides, the expectations of him are extremely large, so he certainly doesn’t anyone to remind him of that.”
