Mick Schumacher will drive a Formula 1 Grand Prix for the first time this weekend. The son of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher is under contract with Haas and is looking forward to his new role.
He feels very comfortable in his new environment: “My experience with the team has been good.
He adds in the team statement: “I feel super comfortable with the team. We’re working hard and I really feel everyone’s super motivated. That’s also then really motivating for me. I’m happy the season’s getting underway now and we really start the work.”
So far, he has been able to drive twice for the American F1 team, last year at FP1 of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and at this year’s tests in Bahrain:
“Obviously, we’ve had the FP1 session and the full weekend together before the test, the rookie day, in Abu Dhabi last season, which was really good. Now having had the first pre-season test with me being an official driver in the team, it’s been very nice.”
The Haas team will have some catching up to do in 2021 after 2020 did not go to plan. With two new drivers, there should now be the desired changes.
