Seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher will return to action on Tuesday when he tests a GP2 car at the Jerez circuit in Spain. The German, who will make a return to Formula 1 racing with the Mercedes GP team this year, will take part in a private test at the Spanish circuit, using a GP2 car from the Supernova team.
A spokesperson for Schumacher confirmed that the test will run from Tuesday to Thursday. The test has been approved by the FIA, according to German media.
Schumacher, who had to rule out a return to F1 last year because of neck problems, is not allowed to test Formula 1 machinery until next month.
