2021 without a German driver?
When things are going badly, Formula 1 2021 will be without a German driver for the first time in over 30 years. But how likely is that?
No German in Formula 1, that would be historic. Only the 1956 and 1981 Formula 1 seasons ran completely without the participation of a German driver. This means that this was only the case in 218 of the 1018 World Cup races to date. The last time in 25 races between Bernd Schneider’s last Formula 1 race for footwork at the 1990 USA GP and Michael Schumacher’s historic debut at Jordan in Belgium in 1991. Michael Bartels has since unsuccessfully tried to qualify in the Lotus.
Will Mick Schumacher advance to Formula 1 in 2021?
Alone: It is far from being sealed that in 2021 there will really be no German in Formula 1. Vettel doesn’t really want to stop, but the Mercedes cockpit.
Pascal Wehrlein is another former Formula 1 driver who would like to go back to Formula 1. A few months ago there were rumors about a new racing team around Adrian Campos, who wants to get into Formula 1 with Wehrlein 2021 – but the project applies not really as serious.
