Mick Schumacher was supposed to complete his first training session at the Nurburgring, but due to the weather, Friday sessions did not take place. Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi expect to make up for lost time tomorrow …
Kimi Raikkonen: “I have almost nothing to say, because today we did not go to the track. The weather cannot be changed. My previous experience of performances on this track does not matter – many racers raced on the Nürburgring, it will not be difficult for everyone to pick up speed. Let’s see what we can do in one hour of Saturday’s training, and what the weather will be like tomorrow. “
Antonio Giovinazzi: “We did not expect the sun in October on this track, but the cancellation of the two Friday training sessions was a surprise. In any case, I would have missed the first session, when I was supposed to be replaced by another driver, but it’s a shame that the team did not collect any information about the work of the car on the track, which we have not performed in recent years.
I hope the sun comes out tomorrow and the day is better! The results of the qualification and the race can be surprising, because the teams do not have enough information. Let’s see how everything goes. “
Mick Schumacher: “I really wanted to leave. I am grateful to Alfa Romeo and the Ferrari Racing Academy for the opportunity to be with the team. It is very useful to talk with engineers, take part in a briefing, and work with mechanics. I learned a lot from this experience, learning about the processes and philosophy of working in Formula 1.
It would be great to gather information for the team. I am sorry for the fans who did not see the cars on the track. We can only hope that the remaining days of the weekend will turn out to be more eventful. “
