Ferrari flirts with Mick Schumacher: door is always open

The Ferrari bosses can best imagine a future of Mick Schumacher at the Traditional Rendering stall – but at the same time advertise for restraint in view of the career of the 19-year-old.

How could Maranello say no to this name”, Ferrari team leader Maurizio Arrivabene said on Friday in Singapore about a possible future interest in the son of record champion Michael Schumacher.

“Our door is always open. The story associated Ferrari with this name is a special one,”said the 61-year-old and concluded with an appeal:”Let the young man have fun. We have to give him time to grow. He’s under enough pressure anyway. Mick has recently developed very well.”

The 19-year-old shoemaker is currently driving his second season in the Formula-3 European Championship and has very good title chances after outstanding achievements in recent weeks. Schumacher won the last three races of the weekend at the Nurburgring ring, only three points away from top rider Dan TickTickTickTicket from the UK promoted by Red Bull.

Schumacher seems to be clearing a hurdle on the marked path to formula 1. With a result below the top two in the final classification of this season, he would have collected enough points for the super license, which is a prerequisite for jumping into the royal class.
