Ferrari has swung open the door for Mick Schumacher.
Mick is the 17-year-old son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher, who won five titles for Ferrari between 2000 and 2004.
This year, he will enter European F3 for the Ferrari-linked Prema team, but it has seemed more likely Schumacher would actually enter the Mercedes family.
But Ferrari’s driver ‘academy’ chief Massimo Rivola said: “About his (Mick’s) future, I don’t know what he will decide to do.
“But if he would like to enter the Ferrari programme, he will find a red carpet,” he told Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport.
