It seems that Mick Schumacher will continue his racing career outside of Formula One, where there is apparently no interest in the German with the famous surname. After Schumacher completely outclassed Nikita Mazepin in the Haas team car, he was unable to get into the right rhythm with the returning Kevin Magnussen. Due to poor results and accidents, in which the team's budget was badly damaged, he was finally left without a racing seat. He currently maintains contact with Formula One through the Mercedes team, which helps the German in the simulator, but the teams do not have a real racing seat for him, so the 24-year-old racer flirts with other racing series. Schumacher recently spoke about a period with the American team that he was quite critical of, but he still hopes to find a regular racing seat. This, although M
The German Mick Schumacher will be a member of the Mercedes team from the 2023 season onwards, where he will perform the role of reserve driver. The son of the legendary Michael Schumacher will thus even have the opportunity to participate in the race, if, for example, due to health reasons, the regular racers, George Russell or Lewis Hamilton, cannot do so. Even in this case, it is not a surprising outcome, as this possibility has been talked about for a long time, and Schumacher, just before the official confirmation by Mercedes, also terminated cooperation with Ferrari and withdrew from their young driver program. The contract is said to be valid only for the 2023 season, opening up the possibility of promotion to regular driver amid growing speculation about Hamilton's reputation. https://twitter.com/MercedesAMGF1/status/1603347273890643969
In the Haas team, they were not impressed with the behavior of Mick Schumacher, who wanted to end the season with some "doughnuts" and burning tires. https://twitter.com/VETTELMSC47/status/1594349462352285698
Ferrari F1 team boss Mattia Binotto has hinted that Mick Schumacher could bid farewell to Ferrari's youth academy in search of a better opportunity for himself. The German is saying goodbye to the Haas team after two seasons, where they decided to leave his place to 35-year-old compatriot Nico Hulkenberg, and it is increasingly expected that Schumacher will follow in the footsteps of his father Michael Schumacher and move from Ferrari to Mercedes. "Mick is a very good racer, he has developed throughout his career and I think he has improved a lot this year as well," said Binotto. "If we look at where he started the season and where he is finishing it, then we see that he is capable of progressing. Even at Ferrari and at the Ferrari Academy of young drivers, we believe that he is a good driver. But after the Haa team
After Mick Schumacher announced that he was parting ways with the American Haas team at the end of the season, Haas announced that the German would be replaced by his countryman, the popular Nico Hulkenberg. Hulkenberg has become a crowd favorite over the past few seasons thanks to his many successful appearances as a temporary replacement for various teams, and now returns as a full-time driver for the Haas team, with whom he has signed a one-season contract. "I am very happy to be given the seat as a regular Haas driver for the entire 2023 season," said the German.
The German Mick Schumacher announced on his social networks that he is leaving the Haas team at the end of the season. His future in the team has been in question for a long time, but now the son of the seven-time F1 world champion, Michael Schumacher, has confirmed that he is ending his cooperation with the American team. Schumacher added that he wants to stay in F1 and will do everything to make it happen, but his future remains uncertain for now. However, they showed interest in him in the Mercedes team, where the young German, according to team boss Toto Wolff, also belongs.
Mick Schumacher will withdraw from Ferrari's Academy of Young Drivers at the end of the 2022 season, thus severing ties with the team from Maranello. The German, who should say goodbye to the Haas team at the end of the season, will thus be available to other manufacturers, while his place in the American team will be taken by the Italian Antonio Giovinazzi. Schumacher doesn't have a lot of vacancies to choose from, and there are growing rumors that he could find himself at the Alpine team alongside Esteban Ocon, while some are linking him with a move to Alpha Taura. There will probably be no room for the German under the auspices of Ferrari, as Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz hold long-term contracts in the team from Maranello, and Ferrari's partner Alfa Romeo ends its close cooperation with the Sauber team at the end of the 2022 season. Most of it should
Sebastian Vettel announced his retirement from Formula after the end of the 2022 season. The four-time world champion surprised the sports public by creating a profile on the social network Instagram, where he was not present for all the years of racing in Formula 1. The German racer made his first appearance in Formula 1 in 2007 at the United States Grand Prix, where he raced for the BMW team, and then the rest of the season got a chance in the Toro Rosso team, where a year later he became the youngest winner in the history of F1. This was followed by a transfer to the Red Bull Racing team and a successful period, where he won the title of world champion among racers four times in a row in the seasons from 2010 to 2013. He later moved to Ferrari, where he fought for the title in 2017 and 2018, but was left empty-handed both times, and then in 2021
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has called on Formula 1 and the FIA to consider the return of eight- or ten-cylinder engines after Sebastian Vettel impressed in a promotional drive for the 30-year-old car at the British Grand Prix. Vettel took to the track at Silverstone behind the wheel of a Williams FW14B racing car powered by the original ten-cylinder power unit. During a promotional drive, the German used a special fuel with no carbon footprint in the racing car he bought at a recent auction. https://twitter.com/longlivesv5/status/1543580153598582786 Fans of traditional Formula 1 have long been calling for the return of loud and screaming power units, which were replaced in 2014 by much quieter 6-cylinder hybrid engines. "It has to
Mick Schumacher was disappointed by the team's decision not to use team orders to swap places with his team-mate Kevin Magnussen after the sprint race in Austria, where he finished ninth after a duel with Lewis Hamilton. The German was one second behind Magnussen for seventeen of the first eighteen laps of the race, with the exception of the lap when Sergio Perez overtook him, but when Hamilton began to attack him, he lost the connection and thus also the possibility of defending using the DRS system. He became an easy target for the Mercedes racer, so he overtook him two laps before the end of the race and won the last point. https://twitter.com/F1/status/1545819570824429569 Schumacher said after the race that the duel with Hamilton was fun, but in his opinion it shouldn't have happened at all
