The lights of Carlos Sainz, Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon, and Alex Albon are likely more preferable options for the Brackley-based team.

Keeping in view everything that has been discussed above, it is going to be fascinating to see how Mick Schumacher’s chances of securing the 2025 Mercedes seat will develop during the course of the upcoming 2024 F1 season. Moreover, in order to cement himself as a potential candidate, he will be required to do well with Alpine in their Hypercar project.
