Mick Schumacher seems on his way to a Formula 1 seat in 2020. The German drove a test in Fiorano on Wednesday in front of Ferrari and explains in a video by Peter Windsor what this has contributed to his development.

It is now a public secret that Mick Schumacher will drive for Alfa Romeo in 2021. The son of the legendary Michael Schumacher is the Ferrari talent at the top of the Formula 2 championship and will be in action at the Nürburgring during the first free practice session for the Eifel Grand Prix.

On Wednesday, however, Schumacher, together with Callum Ilott and Robert Shwartzman, was able to test the hybrid cars. Schumacher already drove a few laps in old cars of his father, but this is something different. ''This is very useful and I would also like to thank Ferrari for it. This gives me the opportunity to learn more about the car so that I know how to drive it."

Next week Schumacher will be in action during the first free practice in Germany. ''This gives me more confidence to drive the Nürburgring. I am really looking forward to it. You are allowed to drive in your own country and work with people with whom I worked with my father before, so that gives me a chance to better understand their way of working," concludes Schumacher.
