Running in his 2nd year in F1, Haas driver, Mick Schumacher, was appointed as Ferrari’s reserve driver earlier this year, a news which came to delight to many fans across the globe. He has been in the Ferrari academy, and won the 2020 F2 season as well, and now since he has moved to Formula 1, he has been trying to prove his driving skills around the paddock. This season started out shaky for the German, as he deliberately tried to score points, but couldn’t, and meanwhile his teammate kept outsourcing him. But through Kevin Magnussen’s guidance, he finally managed to score his initial points in the British Grand Prix.
Since then, Schumacher’s performance has been considerably good as both the drivers have been pushing their limits in the cars and getting the team higher in the standings. The way he has been driving definitely proves that he can perform amazing in a faster car, and being a reserve in Ferrari makes the chances even better. If there is, in any case, an event of either Charles Leclerc or Carlos Sainz not being able to race for a weekend, Schumacher would be driving in the F1-75, and he could prove his skills.
Mick Schumacher “familiar with all the procedures”
Schumacher stated that he has been a part of the Ferrari family since 2019, and so he is familiar with all the procedures, and if gets the chance, could showcase his talent.
“You are only as good as your last race, so I am satisfied at the moment,” PlanetF1 quotes Schumacher, as he talked about his performance at the French Grand Prix.
“But at the same time, I feel that there is no time to sit back. You have to keep looking for that little bit of extra performance.”
Although it would all be good for the German, but currently he is focussing on Haas; with Alonso’s move to Aston Martin, there isn’t any other team that would actually sign a contract with him right now, and because Haas have not been so consistent, he needs to work with the team to outperform other cars on the track.
