Mick Schumacher and Callum Ilott to complete the 2019 rookie test days for Alfa Romeo Racing

Hinwil, 26th March 2019 – Mick Schumacher  is set to complete the second day of testing for Alfa Romeo Racing in Bahrain. The German driver, who is a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) and currently competing in the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship, has demonstrated his determination and talent over the course of the past years, steadily working his way up the ranks in various junior racing categories.

Alfa Romeo Racing is looking forward to welcoming Mick at the Bahrain International  Circuit and accompanying him on his exciting journey to the pinnacle of motorsport.

The team will continue its collaboration  with the FDA at the following test session in Barcelona, where the British Formula 2 driver and Academy member Callum Ilott will also complete a day of testing behind the wheel of the team’s 2019 contender, the Alfa Romeo Racing C38.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo  Racing and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG:

“We are very pleased to announce that Mick Schumacher  and Callum Ilott will each complete a rookie test day for Alfa Romeo Racing. It is in our team’s DNA to spot and nurture young talents. Mick and Callum are perfect examples of determined and skilled racers who deserve to be given the chance to take the next steps in their careers. Collaborating  with two such promising drivers is great news for our team, and we look forward to working together.”

Mick  Schumacher:

“I am obviously more than excited and would like to thank Alfa Romeo Racing for giving me this opportunity. I am really looking forward to what I’m sure will be a great experience. But for the moment, I am consciously putting all thoughts of the test to one side, because I am also very much looking forward to competing in my first F2 race and would like to focus a hundred percent on the weekend to come.”
