Being the son of a legendary Formula 1 racer who has won 7 World Championships in total, can be a taxing job for most, and for Mick Schumacher, it is the utter truth. Living up to the expectations of the fans can become very difficult, but the 23-year-old racer has been able to cope with the pressure till now.
And of course, Mick’s performance has always been under public scrutiny and motorsport enthusiasts have always been comparing his races with his father’s. And now, former F1 racer-turned commentator Marc Surer has chipped in with his opinions of Mick Schumacher after watching the German youngster race for Haas in his debut year of 2021 alongside Nikita Mazepin.
In the five races that have happened till now in the all-new 2022 Formula 1 season, Mick has not been able to place his Haas in the top 10, but the fans of the young driver expect him to do better in the races to come. Commenting on the possibilities that lie ahead of Mick in his future, Marc Surer has said he will turn out to be a good driver, and can even become the World Champion, like his father, one day.
Marc Surer believes Mick Schumacher has it in him to become the F1 World Champion in future
Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher has always been regarded as one of the best racers in the history of the sport. As his son, Mick Schumacher won the World Championship title in 2020 Formula2 Championship with Prema Racing, and joined Haas F1 Team after obtaining his Super License. When the young Schumacher beat rivals like Callum Ilott and Robert Schwartzman to clinch the title of the F1 World Champion, fans were eager to greet him in F1 as they saw his father in him.
In his debut year in Haas, Mick Schumacher performed decently, but could not score any Championship points. But he did show his race pace in some of the Grand Prix’s, and Marc Surer has commented on his performance, saying, “He will be a good driver. I would doubt whether he will become World Champion, but I wouldn’t rule it out.”
As of now, five races into the F1 2022 Championship, Mick Schumacher remains one of the only drivers to have failed to score points in this year, besides Nicholas Latifi. In the Spanish Grand Prix, the German is expected to put up a spectacular performance to showcase his skills.
