Motorlat has been invited to a virtual press conference that Mick Schumacher held with a selected group of motorsport journalists. During this meeting the Haas driver shared his feelings after his second day of Winter testing in the circuit of Bahrain.
Schumacher was satisfied with the work done together with his team after 88 laps working with different sets of Pirelli tyres including the new C3 compound. When he was asked about the differences he found between F1 and F2 and the short period of testing that drivers have this season, Schumacher noted that he enjoys and is learning a lot from working on different settings and later added that although it’s only been two days of testing he is comfortable with the car and ready to start the season. ‘I’d drive every day if I could’ said the 21-year-old driver.
When asked about his excitement after a long day of hard work, Schumacher, who couldn´t hide his smile and took his time to answer all the questions, said that this new experience is better than he has imagined and that he would drive every day if he could. The young rookie highlighted that he can’t wait for the season to begin.
There was also time for a touching reference to his father Michael. The young Schumacher said that he chose to drive with the MSC initials like his father used to do instead of using the first three letters of his surname. The young racer added that seeing those initials back in the F1 timing screen will be something nice for the fans as well.
By the end of the interview the German commented on the immense privilege he feels of being able to do for a living what he loves the most.
Schumacher will be back tomorrow on track for the last day of winter testing in Bahrain.
