Schumacher GP 2 test successful


7-time world champion Michael Schumacher starts the first of his off-season tests in Jerez today driving a GP2 car in preparation for the 2010 season with Mercedes GP Petronas. The German veteran will be driving an open-wheel, single-seat car for the first time since 2009 when he attempted to stand in for injured Ferrari pilot Felipe Massa.

The GP2 series is currently developing specifications for the 2010-2011 car and Schumacher’s test session is a welcome addition to their car development program/. Schumacher said:

“The day today was good especially because after a long time I could drive again in a car that came almost close to a current Formula 1. Despite the weather not being what we all would have liked all my senses were nevertheless on full alert – this alone was worth it. I felt comfortable out on the track from the very beginning, and naturally I’d like to thank our Team and the GP2 series very much for the opportunity to drive.”
