Mick Schumacher is he exploring a new avenue while he is still trying to find the grid, two years after his departure from Haas ? We reassure you, not really. Still, the son of the Red Baron was still in action, a few days after riding with theAlpine A522 on the Paul-Ricard side.

This time, it was near Silverstone that the German was seen. As part of a Pirelli development test, the sixth this year, McLaren called on Mick Schumacher, current reservist of Mercedes. There should therefore be no attempt at a possible arrival in the fold of Woking, who had already had the opportunity to pilot the car of 2021 last year when he was also a reserve driver for Zak Brown's team.

As part of this Pirelli test for finalize the design of 2025 tires, the former protégé of Ferrari completed 53 laps for a best time of 1'37"428 on a wet tarmac. The Italian manufacturer was also able to rely on Williams and Haas who sent Alex Albon and Pietro Fittipaldi on the track this Tuesday, with 86 and 62 passages respectively.

This Wednesday, Lando Norris, Logan sargeant and Oliver Bearman are expected, still for McLaren, Williams and Haas.
