Leo Turrini, a well-known insider with close links to the Maranello marque, said he was dining at the famous ‘Montana’ restaurant – littered with framed photos of Schumacher senior – when he spotted the 16-year-old German.
“Mick was in Maranello to meet friends of his father and talk to Luca Baldisserri, who worked with Schumi as an engineer from 2000 onwards,” Turrini wrote in his blog.
Fascinatingly, Baldisserri now runs Ferrari’s driver development ‘academy’.
Turrini added that Mick is scheduled to travel direct from Maranello to Monza, where he is set to take part in a test for next year’s Formula 4 series.
He said “Baldisserri will be at his side” at the test. (GMM)
