On the second day of the tests in Bahrain, Mick Schumacher will sit behind the wheel of an Alfa Romeo car – on Tuesday, the team from Hinwil confirmed the assumptions that had appeared in the press for several weeks.

Mick Schumacher is a Ferrari Racing Academy listener and will make his Formula 2 debut this weekend, but he is not the only promising pilot with whom Alfa Romeo works: on tests in Barcelona after the Spanish Grand Prix C38 will be piloted by the Ferrari Academy .

Frederick Vasser, Alfa Romeo Team Leader, Executive Director of Sauber Motorsport AG: “We are very pleased to announce that Mick Schumacher and Callum Ilott will work on one test day with Alfa Romeo.

In the tradition of our team – to find young talents and raise them. Mick and Callum are ideal examples of purposeful and well-trained riders who deserve a chance to take the next career step. Cooperation with these promising pilots is great news for our team, and we look forward to starting working together. “

Mick Schumacher: “Of course, I am very excited and would like to thank Alfa Romeo Racing for the opportunity. I’m really excited and confident that I will get a wonderful experience. But at the moment all the thoughts about the tests I leave aside and do it consciously, because I am preparing for my first Formula 2 race, and I would like to fully concentrate on the upcoming weekend. ”
