Max Verstappen beats Mick Schumacher to fastest time at rainy Bahrain Test

Max Verstappen was fastest as Mick Schumacher made an eye-catching debut for Ferrari, finishing second on a rain-hit first day of the in-season test in Bahrain.

Verstappen posted a 1:29.379 in the final 10 minutes of the day to finish six tenths ahead of Schumacher, who was making his first outing in a modern-day F1 car.

Schumacher – son of seven-time world champion Michael, who was a team-mate of Verstappen’s father Jos in 1994 – racked up 55 laps and had moved to the head of the field with just over 20 minutes remaining before Verstappen’s late flyer reclaimed top spot.

The 20-year-old will return in the Alfa Romeo on Wednesday.
