Mercedes Puts Rising Star Antonelli to the Test Against Schumacher at Silverstone

Mick Schumacher Serves as Reference Point in Mercedes’ Evaluation of Kimi Antonelli

Kimi Antonelli Joins Mick Schumacher in W13 Trial Runs

Andrea Kimi Antonelli is set to get another opportunity to showcase his talents to Mercedes, with Mick Schumacher serving as a standard for comparison.

Antonelli is set to pilot the 2022 Mercedes Formula 1 vehicle at Silverstone in the upcoming week during a closed-door trial, according to Auto Motor Und Sport.

He is set to co-drive the W13 with Schumacher, who serves as Mercedes' backup and development driver.

This presents a significant chance for Antonelli to demonstrate his value for an F1 race seat by performing better than an experienced ex-Formula 1 driver.

Antonelli, a 17-year-old from Italy, has surfaced as a significant choice for Toto Wolff in his quest to find a successor for Lewis Hamilton, who is set to join Ferrari in 2025.

Despite being young and relatively inexperienced, Antonelli's remarkable talent has garnered attention from Wolff.

This year, Antonelli has had the opportunity to test drive Mercedes F1 vehicles, with Wolff paying special attention to his performance.

Comparing him with Schumacher by racing in identical vehicles on the same circuit might be considered a more robust assessment of the driver's abilities.

Schumacher has embarked on his second year as a reserve driver for Mercedes. This came following his departure from a two-season stint as an F1 driver with Haas.

Antonelli is also rumored to have a potentially faster debut in Formula 1.

Reports from Miami indicate that an unidentified team has requested a special exemption from the FIA to involve Antonelli in this season's competitions.

An exemption is needed since he is 17 years old and does not fulfill the age requirement of 18.

Williams emerged as the subject of speculation. Team leader James Vowles, maintaining ties with his previous team, Mercedes, is said to be evaluating the possibility of keeping Logan Sargeant as his driver.

Vowles categorically rejected the notion of Antonelli getting an opportunity at Imola the following weekend.

Antonelli appears poised to compete at Silverstone, where surpassing Schumacher's performance in the W13 might bring him nearer to securing a permanent F1 driving position.
