Ferrari confirms Mick Schumacher test

Valtteri Bottas Toto Wolff and Lewis Hamilton

Reports suggest that the son of seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher will make his debut F1 test run for Ferrari, followed by Alfa Romeo.

"I started here in Formula 2 and had some great races, although past year was a little bit harder as I was just at the beginning of my career in Formula 1". Schumacher obviously fills one of those obligations, but the fact Ferrari is giving him the first test day of the year, when its race drivers could have conducted both days in Bahrain, is a significant endorsement of his potential.

Schumacher is a member of the Ferrari driver academy and next weekend in Bahrain begins his first season in Formula Two, the final feeder category before Formula One. "Collaborating with two such promising drivers is great news for our team, and we look forward to working together".

The Barcelona test will mark GP3 race victor Ilott's first opportunity to drive an F1 auto on-track.

The tests will come after Mick Schumacher's F2 debut this weekend.

Ferrari and Alfa Romeo have confirmed that Mick Schumacher has been selected for in-season Formula One testing in Bahrain.

His father Michael won five of his seven world titles during his glittering tenure 1996-2006 at the Scuderia.

In addition to this, he won a record-breaking 91 Formula 1 races, with 72 of those being with Ferrari. He has not appeared in public since sustaining severe head injuries in a skiing accident in late 2013.

MARANELLO, Italy (AP) - Mick Schumacher will move closer to emulating his father when he drives a Ferrari Formula One auto in an official test next week.

Alfa Romeo says it chose Schumacher to get behind the wheel because the young driver showed over the past few years what he's capable of.
