Ferrari Driver Academy member Mick Schumacher tested for the team again today ahead of his grand prix debut for its customer squad Haas in March.

Sporting the number 47 he will race this season, Schumacher drove the 2018-specification SF71H the team has been running at its Fiorano test track since the beginning of the week.

While the team’s race drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jnr covered more than 100 laps each over the previous two days in the car, Schumacher’s mileage was around half that. Ferrari said the day’s objective was to “refamiliarise” himself with the car ahead of further running tomorrow, and that his day had been “trouble-free”.

“Today has definitely been a positive day at the track,” said Schumacher. “We managed to get through the entire programme that we had scheduled without any problems and it was clearly very useful to be able to get through so much mileage at the wheel of a car in view of the coming season that will be starting in about a month and a half with the pre-season testing.”

Schumacher will share the car tomorrow with Ferrari test driver Callum Ilott as the team concludes a five-day programme involving seven different drivers. Giuliano Alesi, Marcus Armstrong and Robert Shwartzman also drove the car earlier in the week.
