Alonso's crucial F1 advice for Schumacher Jr


//

Mick Schumacher has been urged by dual world champion Fernando Alonso to take the first opportunity for an F1 drive that comes his way.

Schumacher, the son of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, is part of the Ferrari Driver Academy and this week drove in F1 testing for his father's old team.

While the F2 driver may seem on the path for a fairytale entry to the pinnacle of motorsport, Alonso said that Schumacher should take the first chance that presents itself.

"It's better to go always as early as you can," Alonso told Sky Sports News.

"You never know when the train will come in Formula 1 when you are young.

"He's in F2 this year, that's the full concentration I guess for him to do a good championship. If he does well and an F1 team relies on your talent you have to take that train."

Alonso started his own F1 career with Minardi in a poor car, before being picked up by Renault, where he won two world championships; his first at age 24, at the time making him the youngest-ever champion. He won 32 grand prix.

Michael Schumacher was briefly with Jordan before moving to Benetton, where he won two world championships, before winning five consecutive titles with Ferrari. He won a record 91 grands prix.

Four-time champion Sebastian Vettel raced with Sauber and Toro Rosso before becoming a winner with Red Bull, though five-time champion Lewis Hamilton went straight into a title-calibre team at McLaren.

Mick Schumacher, who also tested for Alfa Romeo this week, said he was in no hurry to join F1 and wanted to arrive as a complete driver. He will compete for Prema Racing in F2 this season.

"Obviously it's my first year in F2, we'll see how it goes," the 20-year-old said.

"I want to arrive in F1 being a complete racing driver, being as prepared as possible and I think time will tell whether that's next year, or the years to follow.

"I'm taking it one step at a time."
