Mick Schumacher is scheduled for his first official Formula 1 Friday practice session in what looks like the next step to a full-time right with Alfa Romeo as early as next season.
Schumacher’s Friday practice debut with Alfa Romeo on Oct. 9 at the Nurburgring has now been confirmed, as has a similar run for fellow Ferrari junior Callum Ilott at Haas.
“Callum, Mick and Robert have shown what they can do in Formula 2. This is now a further step in their training,” said Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies.
The big buzz, however, is about the son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher.
And one of those who should be looking forward to Schumacher’s debut, according to former Mercedes sporting director Norbert Haug, is Formula 1’s incoming F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.
“Stefano will know very well that Mick deserves this promotion as much as Formula 1 will benefit from it,” Haug said.
