Mick Schumacher

Racing is what I dream of. Actually, racing is constantly on my mind. It’s exhausting, it’s difficult, it’s challenging, it’s complicated. It’s simply awesome.

FIA FORMULA 2

The FIA Formula 2 Championship (F2) is considered to be the ultimate training ground for Formula 1. It is a a one-make championship consisting of up to 22 identical cars. The chassis are designed by Dallara Automobili and the current generation of cars, the F2 2018, will be used for the third time in the 2020 season. The power base is a Mecachrome assembled 3.4L V6 single turbo charged engine.

The F2 car uses slick Pirelli tyres in four specifications (super soft, soft, medium and hard) which are predetermined by Pirelli in advance of the race weekend. Each driver has five sets of dry-weather tyres per weekend – three of “prime” specification and two of “option” specification. Each driver will also be provided with three sets of wet-weather tyres. In the 2020 season, for the first time, new 18-inch tyres will be used instead of 13-inch tyres.

A race weekend is composed of one practice session of forty-five minutes and one half hour qualifying session, followed by two races. The qualifying session is a straight fight for fastest laptime, and determines the order of the grid for Race 1. Four points are awarded for pole position.

Race 1 is run over 170km or 60 minutes (except for Monaco where the race is run over 140km and in Budapest where the race is run over 160km), and each driver must complete one compulsory pitstop and must use at least one set of each specification of dry-weather tyres. The top ten drivers score points (25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1) with two points being awarded to the driver who set the fastest lap of the race.

The grid for Race 2 (Sprint Race) is determined by the finishing order of the first race, with the top 8 positions reversed. Race 2 is run over 120km or 45 minutes (except for Monaco where the race is run over 100km). The top eight finishers score points (15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1), and the driver who sets the fastest lap scores two points. To get the two points for the fastest lap, the driver must finish in the top ten and start the race from his regular starting position. This applies to both race 1 and race 2.

 

PREMA Racing was founded in 1983 by Angelo Rosin and Giorgio Piccolo. From 1994, as a consequence of changes within the company, with the transformation into Prema Powerteam the Team’s activities increased at an international level.

Nowadays, PREMA is one of Europe’s leading international racing teams. It is in fact the third Italian Team (after F1 Teams: Ferrari and Toro Rosso) based on the Team’s dimension, importance and Championships in which it participates. Since its foundation the team has focused on developing and enhancing young drivers’ talents and skills. Honda, Toyota, Renault, Mercedes, Lotus and Ferrari have chosen to support PREMA to help their drivers on the way to racing success.

The team’s tasks are not limited to just the tuning and set up of its racing vehicles, it also aims to deliver the complete training of each driver, from the development of technical knowledge to the improvement of physical fitness.

The strongest junior racing series in the world – and I will be a part of it again in 2020! My full focus is currently on my second Formula 2 season.

After I’ve already learned a lot in 2019 and settled into Formula 2, I want to take the next step in 2020. My goal is not only to further improve as a driver, but also to be in the top group and to be among the front runners.

There are a number of sporting challenges to be mastered, above all the new 18-inch tyres, which will be used in Formula 2 for the first time in 2020. Not only the drivers, but also the engineers in the teams are breaking completely new ground.

My team Prema and I hope that we can handle the new tyres better than the competitors and thus gain an advantage on track. Prema is a real top team – not only on a professional level but also on a personal level it fits perfectly for me.

2020 also means my second season at the Ferrari Driver Academy. Ferrari helps its young drivers enormously through this programme and I’m looking forward to continuing to benefit from it in the new season.

I’m sure that an exciting and interesting year in Formula 2 awaits me. It won’t be easy, but I’m convinced that 2020 will be a good season for me and that I can take the next step to reach my big goal one day. Because my dream is and remains clearly Formula 1 – nothing has changed in that respect.

For Racers, sport is never limited just to the racing track. Mick is gaining fitness and fun also with…

…the racing bike
“Simply a good and complete training. What I especially like is to play with the slipstream, biking with several people, going downhill.“

…the mountain bike
“It’s cool because you have to be very active. And there’s nothing more beautiful than to bike through the forest. Actually you are in the nature all the time, something I really like.“

… with the wakeboard/monoski
“I just so much enjoy going behind one boat together with other friends. That’s total fun. Summer, on the lake – just perfect.“
