After testing with Ferrari, Mick Schumacher, son of seven-time German Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher, continued his learning for Formula 1 with Alfa Romeo Racing, this Wednesday in tests at the Sakhir circuit (Bahrain) .
The 20-year-old, second on the timesheet at the end of his 56 laps with Ferrari on Tuesday, did 70 laps this time and set the sixth fastest time of the day (1 minute, 29 seconds, 998 thousandths).
The best time (1 minute, 29 seconds, 29 hundredths) went to the British George Russell, who starts with Williams but this time at the wheel of the 2019 Mercedes as a former member of the young drivers’ affiliate of the German team.
Another rookie, 19-year-old British Dan Ticktum, tested an F1 with Red Bull, doing 134 laps and setting the ninth time, 1 second and 827 thousandths.
When dealing with tests, those times are not very significant.
Another descendant of an old motoring glory, Brazilian Pietro Fittipaldi, grandson of two-time world champion Emerson Fittipaldi and Haas reserve driver, was twelfth. AFP
