BERLIN – Mick Schumacher, the son of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, said his test with Ferrari this week was an important stepping stone in his fledgling racing career.
“It was very emotional, not just for me, but for all those who were there,” the 20-year-old Schumacher told AFP subsidiary SID on Friday.
“There are doors which open. It gives me opportunities to work with the Ferrari F1 engineers at Maranello.
“I can learn very important things there for my future, and that I can already use in F2.”
On Tuesday, European Formula 3 champion Schumacher, who is taking part in the Formula 2 championship this season, drove 56 laps for Ferrari at Bahrain’s Sakhir circuit.
