Organisers at the Hockenheimring are determined to see Mick Schumacher in action at the German Grand Prix weekend in any kind of capacity. Schumacher's growing relevance in the motorsport world has begun to reignite its popularity in Germany after years of decline.
Even through Sebastian Vettel's most dominant years, F1's popularity in Germany has been on the wane since the glory days of Mick's father Michael Schumacher.
Ticket sales for this year's Hockenheim race are down on last year, when Vettel was in title contention, and the circuit's bosses are determined to remedy it by having Schumacher Jnr in action.
Jorn Teske, Hockenheim's marketing chief, told Motorsport.com: "There could maybe be a test, or a demonstration run in an old Ferrari from his father, or whatever.
"We would like to see him on the track in an F1 car. That's important."
Hockenheim's bosses have previously revealed that attempts to get Formula 2 added to the weekend' schedule when Schumacher was announced fell flat.
"We made the decision makers aware very early that this is important for the German race," Teske said. "We told them when Mick won the F3 championship at our race in Hockenheim, we told them when it was announced that he's racing for Prema in F2. We tried to convince them and made a lot of pressure.
"When the F2 calendar was published, we were really disappointed.
