The 21-year-old son, seven-time world champion Michael, was disappointed
Fog and rain in the Nürburgring led to the cancellation of two training sessions on Friday because it was not safe enough for the medical helicopter to fly.
Schumacher Jr., who drives the Formula 2 arrangement and is part of Ferrari’s Young Driver Program, is expected to take a seat in the Alpha race next year.
He said, ‘It was a shame not to be able to go out, we knew the expectations were not great, at this time of year, we knew it might be wet but the preparations were good and we did the meetings and got that much knowledge from him. At Haz.
We have to wait and see how things develop. We have a lot of lanes that are not driven and the usual drivers need their time in the car.
It will be a great opportunity. F1 is the goal and the dream.
“It’s special to be here and I wish I could go out and drive in front of the crowd – I hope to be here next time.

“We are doing very well and it proves that we are in the right place at the right time.”
