Ferrari have swung open the door for Mick Schumacher.

This year, the 17-year-old will enter European F3 for the Ferrari-linked Prema team, but it has seemed more likely Schumacher would actually enter the Mercedes family.

Ferrari's driver 'academy' chief Massimo Rivola told Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport: "About [Mick's] future, I don't know what he will decide to do.

"But if he would like to enter the Ferrari programme, he will find a red carpet."

Mick is the son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher, who won five titles for Ferrari between 2000 and 2004.
