Mick Schumacher was the number 1 driver at Haas last season when the German had Nikita Mazepin as his teammate. However, since the comeback of Kevin Magnussen Schumacher hasn’t been able to put performances against the experienced Dane driver.
Bernie Ecclestone the former boss of Formula One has recently suggested that Red Bull could prove to be a good fit for the 23-year-old.
Mick is yet to score a point in the 2022 season after coming close on occasions and Ecclestone feels, with a good team behind him the young driver would be able to deliver week in and week out.
The 91-year-old has no doubt in the abilities of Schumacher and is an ardent believer that the German has got all the tools in his arsenal to achieve great things in the sport.
Mick has been very unlucky this season for various reasons and most recently during the Canadian Grand Prix he was running comfortably in 8th place till his car gave in to the trackside conditions at Montreal. Such things so far have not allowed him to score his first points in the pinnacle of motorsports racing.
Bernie Ecclestone on how Red Bull would be a positive move for Mick Schumacher
Red Bull is a team that is “cutthroat” when it comes to switching its driver in the second seat at the team. Pierre Gasly and Alex Albon very well know how much pressure a seat at Red Bull brings.
However, Ecclestone feels Mick being the son of Michael Schumacher would be able to handle it and do well if allowed to drive a Red Bull.
While stressing on Mick to Red Bull Ecclestone said, “They take care of the drivers and they try to find the best settings for their drivers, So you can also see how good the second driver is in their team. They are very good and they make sure the car suits the driver.”
At the moment Sergio Perez has got his grip comfortably over the second seat at the team after signing an extension till 2024 and when the seat becomes available again, do you think Mick Schumacher would have a chance of landing a seat at the prestigious Red Bull team.
