Mick Schumacher has almost replicated Kevin Magnussen's shock performance from Friday in Bahrain, with the German driver rising to finish with the second-fastest test time late on Saturday.

After Haas secured special dispensation to carry out some solo running in the hours after the official chequered flag on Friday and Saturday, due to the team not being ready for the start of testing on Thursday amid freight issues outside of their control, Magnussen set the quickest time of the second day during his extra hour behind the wheel.

With Schumacher given two more hours on Saturday evening, he completed an additional 28 laps and set a best time of 1:32.341 on the Soft C4 compound.

This time was enough to give him the second-fastest time of the day, half a second behind Red Bull's Max Verstappen on the Soft C5 compound.
