The reigning European Formula 3 champion and son of seven-time F1 title victor Michael Schumacher made his F1 test debut in Bahrain on Tuesday, driving for Ferrari. Recall, he joined the Ferrari Driver Academy in January.
"I was impressed by the braking power an F1 auto has".
"It seemed to me you could brake later and later and the vehicle would have made the turn anyway", the German added.
Schumacher, though, said despite the tests, and amid Italian press reports that he would make an ideal replacement for struggling Sebastian Vettel, he is in no rush to step up to F1.
Lewis Hamilton, Sunday's race victor for Mercedes after Ferrari's Charles Leclerc suffered a late engine problem, was sixth fastest.
Schumacher is the only driver making his F1 test debut on Tuesday, with the rest of the line-up comprising regular race drivers. Fernando Alonso also returned to F1, conducting a tyre test for Pirelli in a McLaren at the Sakhir circuit.
Michael Schumacher, who still holds the record of 91 grand prix wins, won five of his titles with Ferrari in a golden period from 2000 to 2004.

He is behind the wheel of McLaren's MCL34 as part of his role as an ambassador and advisor for the team, seeking to aid the development of its 2019 vehicle. Although the mileage was solid for an afternoon in the vehicle, his best lap was unspectacular with the 11th fastest time. The vehicle has more grip, the auto is less draggy on the straights, the engine is a big step better as well.
