Formula 2 Champion and Haas F1 driver Mick Schumacher revealed his timing screen abbreviation will be “MSC,” the same as his father Michael Schumacher.
Mick used “SCH” in previous competitions as it’s common for the timing abbreviations to be the first three initials of the drivers’ surnames.
However, the German revealed he will be using “MSC” in Formula 1 because it has “an emotional bond” with him.
“It’s an emotional bond I have to it. I think it’s quite nice for everybody watching the timing screens and seeing ‘MSC’ back on the screens as well.”
Schumacher is about to make his Formula 1 debut at the Bahrain Grand Prix in the next weeks. The German was signed by Haas alongside Nikita Mazepin and has put a decent amount of laps during pre-season testing.
“I learned a massive amount of new things which were all positive,” said Schumacher about the testing outing.
“Being able to get those laps under my belt – I’ve done over 80 laps today and obviously compared to 15 laps yesterday, that’s quite a big difference. And it really gave me a new way of seeing F1 and understanding driving on track.”
