Mick Schumacher second fastest on F1 test debut with Ferrari

Mick Schumacher makes F1 testing debut with Ferrari

Alonso was a title rival of Schumacher Snr's in the 2000s and named the seven-time champion as the greatest driver he raced against.

"The feeling I had going out and the first time on the throttle. this thing has so much power", he added. It seemed to me you could brake later and later and the vehicle would have made the turn anyway.

As the drivers resumed in the afternoon, with Romain Grosjean the fastest man until that point, Verstappen produced the fastest time before being quickly overtaken by Schumacher, whose 1m 29.976 looked to be good enough to secure the fastest lap of the day.

Thirteen years after his father last drove for Ferrari, Schumacher said he quickly felt at home with the team and relished his first F1 drive.

And while Schumacher is not expected to take Sebastian Vettel or Charles Leclerc's seat in 2019, there is hope he will soon make it onto the F1 grid on a permanent basis. The Dutchman's best time was 1min 29.379sec, with Schumacher's 0.6sec back.

Alonso is driving as part of Pirelli's tyre testing programme, though, so will be following its guidance rather than working through McLaren developments.

"I'm just waiting to get out there again and just looking forward to it really, trying to improve the spots that I wanted to improve today", Schumacher said.

"The vehicle is incredible because of the power it has but it is also smooth to drive", he said.

F1: Alonso to test with McLaren in Bahrain
I achieved a lot more in F1 than I dreamed of and I had great opportunities outside F1 to do something unprecedented. After quitting Formula One at the end of last season, Fernando Alonso has suggested he would be open to a return .

"I guess you guys [the media] can see that I am smiling a lot and I enjoyed a lot, especially those last laps".

He last raced for the team in 2006 before a comeback with Mercedes from 2010-12 and has not been seen in public since he suffered severe head injuries in a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013.

The German, whose father won the Bahrain Grand Prix from pole position in a Ferrari one-two on April 4, 2004, will also test with the Ferrari-powered Alfa Romeo team.

McLaren rookie Lando Norris set the third fastest test time, completing 22 laps.

Alonso retired from F1 in 2018 but remained as an ambassador and adviser to McLaren and was conducting the Pirelli tyre test in this capacity.

Sebastian Vettel will be back in the vehicle on Wednesday. He completed 64 laps, was 11th fastest and he was impressed with this year's model.

The 20-year-old European F3 champion made his Formula Two debut at the Sakhir circuit over the weekend, finishing eighth and sixth in the two races.
