Mick Schumacher (21), son of Michael Schumacher, will shortly be announced at Haas as the new driver for 2021. Uncle Ralf welcomes this: “Everything that is Formula 1 is really good for Mick. The situation at Haas has changed a bit, there were sales thoughts in the room. I can well imagine Ferrari and Haas moving closer together now, because Ferrari has invested so much in Mick – financially as well, plus of course the emotional bond. You will try to support the team technically as best you can. Hopefully the engine will fit, then it could be a surprise too, ”believes Schumi II.

But he is critical of the possibility that Nikita Mazepin will probably become a second newcomer to the team. Schumacher: “I think that’s a mammoth task in today’s Formula 1 because it has simply become extremely technical”.

Ralf Schumacher is a team owner himself in various young talent series. He would make a different choice: “A Sergio Perez or Niko Hülkenberg, these are drivers who have a lot more experience in Formula 1. That would be desirable. Of course you can say: just let the two rookies drive when they have the speed. But it will be very difficult because Formula 1 is much more than just speed, ”the 45-year-old knows.
