Mick Schumacher is increasingly likely to make his Formula 1 race debut in 2021 after he extended his lead in the Formula 2 championship at Mugello.
Schumacher’s 21-point lead over fourth place Shwartzman is significant, RaceFans understands, as he has been guaranteed a place in Formula 1 if he finishes in the top three in the championship.
The Ferrari Driver Academy has links to Alfa Romeo, who Schumacher tested for last year. Ferrari also supplies power units to Haas. Both teams are yet to confirm their driver line-ups for the 2021 F1 season.
Following today’s F2 sprint race Schumacher drove his father’s Ferrari F2004 in a demonstration run at the circuit, marking the team’s 1,000th start in a world championship race.

Mick wasn’t particularly rapid this weekend but still managed to extend his lead in the championship, not bad.
Ferrari have a problem here really. Schumacher, Ilott & Shwartzman all are pretty decent and ready for F1 but there’s not enough seats for all of them, realistically.
Shwartzman is in his rookie F2 year, the other two are not. I would choose Shwartzman of the three. And Lundgaard is also ahead of Ilott and Schumacher for me.
