Ross Brawn, the F1 managing director while stressing about many things during a recent interview, has revealed that Mick Schumacher, the Haas driver is at a crossroads in his career and further has stated that he wants to see the German continue at the pinnacle of motor racing.

Mick Schumacher, after getting off to an extremely tough start during the initial races of the 2022 season has managed to bounce back strongly since the British Grand Prix and has improved his chances of securing a seat for the next season of the sport.

As things stand, the 23-year-old is a person of interest for his current team, Haas, and the Wantage-based Williams F1 team. However, nothing solid has come out of both camps yet regarding Mick and, at the moment, he is stuck in limbo.

While there is uncertainty regarding the German’s future, Ross Brawn has backed Mick and added, “Positive, he’s improved a lot this year. He has a really good reference in Kevin Magnussen as a teammate and is now at an important crossroads in his career.

In any case, he deserves to take the next step in his career. And by that, he will be measured.”
