Mick Schumacher said in an interview that he is not sure about when he will have again the possibility to drive an F1 car during the free practice sessions, after the cancellation of today's ones because of the bad weather.
Not only Mick Schumacher, as also Callum Ilott, his teammate at Ferrari Driver Academy, was planned to drive today, not with Alfa Romeo as Schumacher, but with Haas.
“Obviously it’s been a shame not to get out", said Schumacher. “But we knew that the weather forecast didn’t look great. This time of year in the Eifel it’s not the most sure it’s going to be dry. We knew it might be wet and it was. At the end the preparation was good, we done a lot of meetings and I got so much knowledge of it so it’s been very helpful".
“We have to wait and see how things develop", said then Schumacher when asked whether he might be able to drive in a later practice session. “Obviously a lot of tracks coming up which are not often driven on. Also the official drivers need their time in the car. So we’ll just have to wait and see".
"Any opportunity would be great to hop into the car. F1 is the goal and F1 is the dream so the more I get into it will be obviously more of an opportunity for me to show myself in that category".
“But obviously for me the focus is on F2, try to finish that on a high, try to focus on that championship. F1 is not a focus on that side", explained eventually Mick Schumacher.

It‘s a shame there was no on-track action today, especially for the fans. However, I could learn a lot being part of all the regular race weekend procedures.
