Mick Schumacher and Fernando Alonso begin Bahrain F1 test

Mick Schumacher and Fernando Alonso begin Bahrain F1 test”

That is despite the fact the 20-year-old son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher made his F1 test debut for Ferrari in Bahrain on Tuesday.

The reigning European F3 champion will also test with the Ferrari-powered Alfa Romeo team (formerly Sauber) on Wednesday. The SF90 is incredible because of the power it has, but it is also smooth to drive, and that's why I enjoyed myself so much.

By the end of his first day in an F1 auto, he had run up a total of 56 laps, which is roughly equivalent to a full race. It seemed to me you could brake later and later and the auto would have made the turn anyway.

And his pal four-time F1 champ Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel said: "Obviously, with the name and being the son of Michael, there's certainly some links and expectations".

The poll also found that far more voters supported, rather than opposed, a "Medicare for All" health care system. In another Twitter post, Trump wrote that "everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn't work".

Mick is now competing in the F2 Championship - the feeder series to F1, where he finished 8th and 6th in his debut races.

The youngster took to the Ferrari SF90 for his maiden F1 drive on Tuesday morning on a day when running was interrupted by rain.

"What is important is for Mick to hopefully one day, hopefully not too late, to reach Formula One and to be there for many years".

Five of his father's record seven F1 titles were won with Ferrari from 2000-04. His lap time in the Mercedes, which has won both grands prix this year, was 2.7s faster than his qualifying time in the Williams during the Bahrain Grand Prix last weekend.

According to WWF India website , the organisation is also running #Bee4ThePlanet campaign to mark Earth Hour this year. On Saturday millions of people around the world will flick a switch - a light switch that is.

McLaren rookie Lando Norris set the third fastest test time, completing 22 laps.

His Formula 1 career so far has focused on trying to improve a struggling Williams, but George Russell made the most of his day in a Mercedes to go fastest on Wednesday in Bahrain.

Alonso retired from F1 in 2018 but remained as an ambassador and adviser to McLaren and was conducting the Pirelli tyre test in this capacity.

Schumacher, who won the F3 European Championship title previous year, is competing in F2 for the Prema Racing team this season and finished eighth and sixth in his first two races at the weekend.

He is behind the wheel of McLaren's MCL34 as part of his role as an ambassador and advisor for the team, seeking to aid the development of its 2019 auto. He completed 64 laps, was 11th fastest and he was impressed with this year's model. "I think the auto has more grip, is less draggy on the straights, and the engine is a bigger step better as well".
