Mick Schumacher to make F1 debut with Ferrari at Bahrain testing

Mick Schumacher will take part in his first Formula 1 test in Bahrain with Alfa Romeo

He'll spend the Monday following the race day prepping with Ferrari for his run in the SF90, and once that's done, he is set to make his run with Alfa Romeo Sauber on 3rd April.

Schumacher was signed up as a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy last winter following his European F3 championship success, with the Italian outfit eager to help guide him to F1 in the future.

This came on the back of a successful campaign in the European Formula 3 championship previous year, where Schumacher tallied eight wins to take the title.

Five of his record-breaking seven titles came with Ferrari.

While Mick Schumacher has never driven a modern-day Formula 1 vehicle before, he has sampled his father's 1994 Benetton at Spa during a demo run a couple of years back. "I am really looking forward to what I'm sure will be a great experience, ' Schumacher said after the news broke".

Toto Wolff says the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend will offer much different challenges to what was presented during the opening weekend of the season in Australia, and it will be up to the whole Mercedes-AMG Mercedes team to ensure another race weekend at the front of the field.

"I am obviously more than excited and would like to thank Ferrari and Alfa Romeo for giving me this opportunity", Schumacher said in the Ferrari statement.

"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".

Michael Schumacher, 50, retired from F1 racing in 2012.

Mick's father, Michael, is a seven-time champion F1 champion.
