"My first test with McLaren was great; we did so many laps out there,” shared a visibly enthused Schumacher. Commending McLaren for their exceptional team dynamics, he stated, “It has been really good to get that experience with the team.

It is a great team and a great bunch of people." In preparing for the test, Schumacher detailed how the team laid out a comprehensive schedule, focusing on specific areas that would enhance his development as a driver. The experience involved varied projects, primarily aimed at improving Schumacher's driving style and his understanding of the racing tyre's performance.

"The tyre we used is an academy tyre, so it is a little different, but it is a great one to learn on and improve my skills, and that is what we were really focused on," Schumacher divulged.
