BREAKING NEWS: Schumacher to make F1 Debut in Germany
The Formula 2 Driver will get his first taste of F1 very soon.
Mick Schumacher will be driving for Alfa Romeo in the first practice session at the 2020 Eifel Grand Prix at the Nürburgring on the 9th October. This will be the first time that the Schumacher name will be back in Formula 1 since his father, Michael, retired from the sport in 2012. He will replace current Alfa Romeo driver Giovinazzi for the practice session.
Mick won't be the only driver to make his F1 debut at the Nürburgring however as Callum Illot will also be driving in the opening practice session on Friday where he will drive one of the Haas F1 cars. Robert Shwartzman will go on to make his F1 debut at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (the final race of the 2020 F1 season) but it is currently unknown which team he will drive for - although it is most likely going to be either Haas or Alfa Romeo.
With both drivers currently leading the Formula 2 Championship, it's only natural that both were going to get to test out a Formula 1 car sometime this season. For Mick, it will be especially special as he gets to make his F1 debut at his home race. This will be the second time this season Mick has gotten to drive an F1 car after he got to drive his father's Championship winning 2004 car in Mugello a few weeks ago.
Mick is also now the hot favourite to win the Formula 2 title in 2020 as he leads the Championship by ten points with four races left and managed to win another race in Sochi last weekend. It is widely rumoured that Mick will also become Kimi Räikkönen's new teammate at Alfa Romeo in 2021 to make an exciting and iconic line up. It's an exciting time in the world of F1.
