He will now take the wheel of the top of the range Alfa Romeo ahead of the Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring circuit in two weeks time.

Alfa Romeo will announce their line up for the 2021 season after the October 9 Grand Prix and are thought to be keen on promoting the 21-year-old from F2 to F1.

“I am overjoyed to get this chance in free practice,” Schumacher said.

“I’m going to prepare myself well, so that I can do the best possible job for the team and gain some valuable data for the weekend.”

If he impresses he could be in the running for Antonio Giovinazzi’s seat along with several other Ferrari academy proteges as well as the experienced Mexican Sergio Perez and German Nico Hulkenberg.
