Prema Racing said on Tuesday his move to F2 "represented the next natural step." Schumacher, who joined the team in 2016, has worked his way up from F4. "In all his racing endeavors, his progress has been relentless, which highlights a very good potential for the upcoming challenge," the team said.
Schumacher will get his first taste of F2 at the postseason tests from Thursday to Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
