Mick Schumacher will offer Ferrari fans a trip down memory lane before next Sunday’s Tuscany GP when the young German charger takes to the Mugello track onboard his father’s title-winning Ferrari F2004.
Schumacher has previously demoed the car that seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher steered to his final F1 title, showcasing the machine at last year’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

Sunday’s run – which Ferrari described as “a fitting tribute to the Scuderia’s most successful car and its incomparable driver” – will take place ahead of the Italian outfit’s 1,000th Grand Prix, a historical track record that started at Monaco in 1950.
As part of the Scuderia’s landmark celebrations, the teams cars will be decked out in a burgundy livery that will salute their glorious ancestor, the Ferrari 125 that raced in Monaco in 1950.
Mick Schumacher, who won last Saturday’s F2 feature race at Monza, is earmarked for a potential promotion to F1, likely with Alfa Romeo.
The 21-year-old is currently second in the FIA Formula 2 Championship’s standings, six points behind fellow FDA member Callum Ilott and three points ahead of Robert Shwartzman, another FDA charger.
