Mick Schumacher hit the barriers with less than ten minutes to go in FP2. He was forced to stop the car and retire, but he sees that crash as part of a learning process.

Schumacher crashed on top of the hill of sector one. The result was a puncture and a damaged right rear suspension, that forced him to stop the car after the tunnel.

“The feeling in the car, the feeling with the team is great, obviously on high fuel we’ve had a small issue in the last lap, but even that I think it’s part of the deal in Monaco, right?”

“There’s no room for mistakes, I did a small mistake and that’s what happened. Now I know the limit, and I know how far I can go. I think in general it went very well. I feel quite comfortable in the car. we know what we have to improve, we know where potentially we lost a bit of time,” he added.

Schumacher underlined once again that the team is not focussing on 2021, but 2022. Therefore, the important thing for Haas is the set-up, and the German said that the squad is improving under that aspect.

“I think we have to say we are not having any big upgrades coming our way, so the only improvements, the only changes we can do is within ourselves in the set-up, and I do feel we as a team are making progress,” he said.

“Monaco, here, you never know before it goes to qualifying so we’ll just do our jobs, do our routine, and work on ourselves to then be as prepared as we can be for qualifying,” he concluded.

I am an Italian guy. I love Motorsport because of the emotions that it gives me and I grew up watching races. That's what I love!
