Mick Schumacher will make his official Formula One debut in a test for Ferrari next week. The 20-year-old, son of seven-time world champion Michael, will drive for the Italian team in Bahrain – on Tuesday, April 2 – before testing for Alfa Romeo at the same venue a day later. Mick Schumacher is set to follow in his father’s footsteps Schumacher Jr, who begins his Formula Two campaign – the feeder championship to F1 – at the Sakhir Circuit later this week, said: “I am obviously more than excited and would like to thank Ferrari for giving me this opportunity. “I am really looking forward to what I’m sure will be a great experience. “But for the moment, I am consciously putting all thoughts of the test to one side, because I am also very much looking forward to competing in my first F2 race and would like to focus a hundred per cent on the weekend to come.” [article-rail-section title=”LATEST SPORT NEWS” posts_category=”9692″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] Schumacher Jr’s participation in next week’s first in-season test will be seen as another major stride to following in his father’s footsteps. Schumacher Sr won five of his seven world titles racing for Ferrari at the turn of the century. He also won a record 91 grands prix. The German, however, has not been seen in public since his dreadful skiing accident more than five years ago.

Ferrari team principal, Mattia Binotto said: “We are firm believers in the value of the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA), as a high-level training programme for talented youngsters and the decision to give Charles Leclerc a race seat with our team is proof of that. “Mick, who joined the FDA in January, and Callum, who has been with us since 2017, are definitely drivers on their way up and I believe that driving the SF90 in an official setting such as the tests in Bahrain and Barcelona can be very useful at this stage in their career.”
