Schumacher driving GP2

M.Schumacher completed today his first GP2 test after he got the opportunity to test the new car built for 2011 for three days.

Needless to say that despite the test being made for him to supposedly help with his input on the new car, at the same time is important for him to get some time on a single sitter that is as close to an F1 car as it can be since Mercedes GP don't have an older than 2009 car for him to test.

Here is what he 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.”
