Alfa Romeo team boss Frederic Vasseur has dismissed giving Mick Schumacher any F1 seat time in 2020.

As a member of Ferrari's Driver Academy, Schumacher was given F1 seat time earlier this year in Bahrain, both with the Scuderia and with Alfa Romeo but was not impressive whatsoever.

While the Hinwil-based squad remains affiliated with the House of Maranello and the most probable entry point for Schumacher in F1 after his second campaign in Formula 2 in 2020, Vasseur insists there will be no track time allocated to the young German next season.

"There will be no additional tests next year," Vasseur told Blick's Roger Benoit.

“First of all, Mick has to win Formula 2 or perform well but that is incredibly difficult given the conditions and the pressure.

"We are following his path and progress," along with Ferrari.
