Michael Schumacher’s son Mick annoyed by F1 rule changes ahead of debut season as practise time is slashed

MICK SCHUMACHER is bemused by the lack of pre-season testing as he gears up for his F1 debut. The 21-year-old son of legend Michael will race for Haas in Formula One this season. Schumacher won the F2 Championship last season with Prema Racing and is confident of stepping up to the big league. F1 drivers and teams usually have six to eight days testing in Barcelona over two sessions before the season starts. Schumacher said: “As a team, we only have three days of testing instead of six or eight days as in the previous years. “That means I only get one and a half days of testing before my first race – and then an hour less training. Schumacher added: “Fortunately, I have the opportunity to do it at home and practice my routes there and sharpen my driving skills. Schumacher Sr was critically injured in a skiing accident in 2013. Schumacher Jr told RTL: “Of course I use some of my father’s tips – even from my karting days. “We have a Formula 2 car that weighs 780 kilos, the cars back then weighed 500 kilos.
