It is not the first time that Schumacher junior is allowed to test a red racer on Ferrari’s home and court track, and yet it will be something special again. Because in Fiorano his famous father Michael already unwound a lot of test kilometers. Mick, who was born in 1999 before Michael celebrated his great success with the Scuderia, was partly there himself.
Mick remembers: “I spent a lot of time here as a child and watched my father drive. Whenever I see pictures from that time, I start to remember. Most of them were recorded during the winter test drives, so we all wear jackets. But I was probably here earlier than I had to be carried around. “
At that time there were no test restrictions as they are today. “They rewound many thousands of kilometers a year. It would be great for us if we could do that, ”admits Schumi junior. After all: Ferrari now gives him the opportunity in a two-year-old car.
