His 50-year-old father also holds the record for F1 wins with 91.

"The SF90 is incredible because of the power it has, but it is also smooth to drive, and that's why I enjoyed myself so much", said Schumacher.

"It was handsome to make those first laps and to see all those guys working on the vehicle and working with me".

Michael Schumacher remains the most successful grand prix driver in history and became a household name after winning five titles with Ferrari.

Thirteen years after his father last drove for Ferrari, Schumacher said he quickly felt at home with the team and relished his first F1 drive.

Schumacher's presence somewhat eclipsed the return of Fernando Alonso in a second McLaren vehicle being used for Pirelli tyre testing this week.

As well as Schumacher's Ferrari debut, there was plenty of interest surrounding Fernando Alonso's return as the Spaniard carried out tire testing duties for Pirelli in a 2019 McLaren.

"And the limitations of the vehicle, if the tyres allow me to feel the limitation [and] what the limitation is - which part of the corner are we strong, which part of the corner are we weak?"

Schumacher waltzed past Mercedes' Hamilton to post the second-fastest lap time in Bahrain today.

"In my case obviously it's more a test for myself to go back to this driving style, to understand a little bit the auto", Alonso said.

The former driver was skiing with his son in December 2013 when he fell and hit the right side of his head on a rock, splitting open the helmet.

Drivers who impress in F2 traditionally get granted a chance at F1.

Schumacher, hoping to one day following his father into F1, is set to drive for Alfa Romeo during Wednesday's test session in the Gulf kingdom.

McLaren rookie Lando Norris set the third fastest test time, completing 22 laps. He has been clear he wants to help the team develop the auto and has not ruled out a return to F1.

It was Alonso's first time in a contemporary F1 auto since his farewell race in Abu Dhabi last November, and he completed 50 laps in total.

"It's a step forward in every aspect", he said. The vehicle has more grip, the auto is less draggy on the straights, the engine is a big step better as well.

Schumacher, who won the F3 European Championship title a year ago, is competing in F2 for the Prema Racing team this season and finished eighth and sixth in his first two races at the weekend.
