Formula 1: Mick Schumacher is proud of that despite his failure

For Mick Schumacher (22) it was a novelty. So far he has also finished all of his 14 Formula 1 races. At the Russian Grand Prix he had to stop his Haas early for the first time. After 34 of 53 laps it was over.

“I don’t know yet what exactly broke. It seems to be something internal to the engine. We tried to solve it on the track, but that didn’t work out. We therefore had to go into the pits and park the car, ”said Schumacher at Sky.

In Russia, Mick Schumacher had to stop his Haas early for the first time.

Mick Schumacher was also able to overtake his team mate Nikita Mazepin in the course of the race. But shortly afterwards the retirement, although the Haas burned strong times in the asphalt.

Mick: “At that point we were actually doing well. The only driver who was faster at the time was Lewis (Hamilton, editor’s note). That can mean something, ”said Schumacher. However, he was probably not quite properly informed. He was actually within a second with the world champion, but others were sometimes even faster.

And further: “In terms of pace, it was one of our best races. I would not have thought that. So there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel. “
