Mick Schumacher keeps noticing progress that Haas has made since the Bahrain Grand Prix at Imola.

Mick Schumacher finished his second Formula 1 qualifying 18th, more than half a second away from his teammate Nikita Mazepin. After the session, the young German driver reflected on his performance on Saturday afternoon.

“I was pushing a lot more, but unfortunately I lost out at the Variante Alta chicane – I think there was another one or two tenths in it really. But the good thing is we know we can improve, we’re not yet at the end,” Schumacher said.

Two race weekends into the 2021 Formula 1 season, it is clear that Haas is among the backmarkers of the grid. However, one of the drivers Mick Schumacher acknowledges that the team keeps improving and has in fact made some progress after the opening round in Bahrain.

“We saw improvement from Bahrain, so I’m really happy seeing that for us,” he remarked.

Mick Schumacher also aded that he would use the experience gained in Bahrain for tomorrow’s race.

“We’ll wait and see what happens tomorrow in the race – long runs are always a different game really. It’s hard to predict what’s been happening through the free practices, everyone’s trying different things and set-ups. I’m mindful of how Bahrain went, so I’ll take that into consideration this weekend. I’m just looking forward to driving again tomorrow.”
