Schumacher not worth 'big fuss' - former Ferrari chief
Former Ferrari team boss Cesare Fiorio has dismissed the hype surrounding Mick Schumacher. The newest recruit to Ferrari's Driver Academy, European Formula 3 champion Schumacher tested both the Ferrari and the Alfa Romeo last week in Bahrain to great fanfare.
Schumacher surged to his maiden junior title last year with a spectacular run of form in the second half of the season, which included a clean sweep of three race victories at the Nurburgring round.
Having stepped up to Formula 2 with Prema Powerteam for 2019, Schumacher scored points in both races of the opening round in Bahrain, although he finished sixth in the sprint race, having started on pole position.
