Schumacher plays down F1 move after Hungary win
Mick Schumacher feels he has more to do before landing an F1 seat after his maiden Formula 2 win at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday.
The Prema driver held off Nobuharu Matsushita in Sunday's reverse-grid sprint race - taking the chequered flag in the F1 feeder category at a track where his father Michael won four times.
Schumacher, who tested for Ferrari and Alfa Romeo in Bahrain earlier this year, has been talked about as a shoo-in for an eventual Formula One seat because of his ties to the Prancing Horse.
However, the German was keen after his Hungary win to underline that he still feels he has more to do before he would be fully prepared for a move up.
"I think only time can tell," said Schumacher on whether he thinks next year could be too soon.
"Having the first victory in F2 is a great thing; still I need to work a lot on myself.
"Whether I go to F1 next year or in two years, or maybe in three years, I don't know. As I said, only time can tell that. I will do my best possible, try to learn as much as possible for when I do the step to be ready and be able to feel comfortable in whatever team I go to."
