Frédéric Vasseur has revealed that Alfa Romeo could run Mick Schumacher this season. The German, like Robert Shwartzman and Callum Ilott, is among the top members of the Ferrari Driver Academy, and he had already tested an Alfa Romeo last year in Bahrain (pictured).
"I think the level in F2 is very high this season" Vasseur said. “There are always at least five or six drivers who can win the race, so I think it's one of the best championships in history.”
Mick Schumacher had a mixed start to the season against Robert Shwartzman, his team-mate at Prema, but the German is posting solid and consistent performances and Alfa Romeo still plans to evaluate him. He could get some runs in FP1 during races where F2 will not be present in October.
"I think he will have the opportunity to test an F1 car before the end of this season. We will see, there are still six races in his championship and he is fighting for the title."
On the side of Haas F1, also in connection with the Ferrari Driver Academy, entering Schumacher, Shwartzman or Ilott is not excluded, as Günther Steiner confirms: "Right now anything is possible, from keeping the drivers you have, to hiring two newbies."
