No Friday practice at Mugello for Schumacher

Mick Schumacher’s entourage has denied reports that the young German will make his F1 race weekend debut at Mugello. Germany’s RTL and n-tv broadcasters reported that the son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher will drive an Alfa Romeo or Haas car in Friday practice. “I have no idea how RTL came to that assumption,” said Schumacher’s press spokesman Timo Gans. It is possible the sources got confused about news that 21-year-old Schumacher will demonstrate his father’s 2004 Ferrari this weekend at Mugello. But former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, who was famously close with seven-time world champion Schumacher, said the youngster should not debut for Ferrari. More likely for Schumacher is a seat at a Ferrari-linked team, namely Alfa Romeo or Haas.
