Test in Bahrain: the time of Mick Schumacher ... and Alonso

The Spaniard will work on the Pirelli test program, following the manufacturer's instructions. And the son of the heptacampeón of the world will rise to Ferrari and Alfa Romeo.


A test of veterans and novices in Bahrain, which starts today and ends tomorrow with two days of shooting threatened by the wind, very annoying this Monday in Bahrain, which will have dirtied the track after the grand prize. Among the great attractions, the presence of Fernando Alonso piloting the McLaren, but do not be fooled: will work on the Pirelli test program, following the tire manufacturer's instructions, and few conclusions can be drawn from doors to outside on his performance at the controls of MCL34.

The other is Mick Schumacher, 20, who will drive the Ferrari on Tuesday and the Alfa Romeo on Wednesday, his first kilometers in Formula 1 after debuting with points in Formula 2 this weekend (it was 8th and 6th, Latifi and Ghiotto won). Mattia Binotto, director of the Ferrari team, in this regard: "I spent time with him when he came to Maranello a few weeks ago This weekend I saw him for a while and wished him luck before he got in the car, We are very happy because he is in our academy, we follow him a lot, but he has to be relaxed and focused because this is a season for him ".

For the rest, Carlos Sainz will drive half a day the two days, one for McLaren and the other for Pirelli. Toro Rosso also He has tests with the tire manufacturer so, like Woking, they will have two cars on the track. Of the champions, Hamilton and Vettel remain, although they will not coincide on the track. Russell will get on the Mercedes on Wednesday to get even from Williams, Ticktum will debut with Renault and Pietro Fittipaldi returns to Haas (he has already climbed in the preseason). There will be another two days of training after the GP of Spain in Montmeló.
