The team Ferrari de F1 seriously analyzes the possibility of having the services of German Mick Schumacher, son of Michael Schumacher, in the future. So he let it understand Mattia binotto, head of the Scuderia, who admitted that Junior's arrival at Haas aims to assess your conditions.
Schumi's heir, a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, already demonstrated his talent in previous years by obtaining the titles of Formula 3 in 2018 and Formula 2 in 2020. After obtaining their last title, the Maranello team paved their arrival to the American team to debut in the Maxima this year.
“Mick Schumacher will be one of the Haas drivers this year, which for us is a great opportunity to show the strength of the collaboration we have. Mick is part of our FDA and this program is not there to develop drivers for F.1, but to develop drivers who can one day drive a red car for Ferrari… ”explained Binotto, who thus made the plans clear for the 21-year-old.
“When you go from F.2 to F.1 you can't race in a red car in your first year because it would be too much responsibility, in addition to not having enough experience. Knowing that we have client teams or partners that we can count on to continue developing our pilots in F.1 is an important element ”, he assured.
The FDA is going through one of its best moments since Schumacher's title is joined by the runner-up achieved in the same F.2 by English Callum illot, who was appointed as a Ferrari tester this year; and the prominence of the Russian Robert Shwartzman, favorite to stay with the crown in the antechamber category of the F.1.
