Mick Schumacher believes that Kevin Magnussen’s return to Haas will benefit both the German and the team.
It was announced ahead of the Bahrain pre-season testing last week that Magnussen would replace Nikita Mazepin at Haas. The Dane has already driven for the team from 2017 to 2020 and has a lot of experience. Schumacher has shared his thoughts about the new teammate.
“It’s definitely beneficial for me and for the team,” he said.
“He’s been part of it for four years, then obviously had a one year break now. Everybody likes him in the team. I think the emotion and the feeling in the team is really good.
“And yeah, he’s a good reference, so it’s only positive for now.”
Schumacher also thinks that Magnussen’s comeback will put some pressure on him.
“I think that obviously I can benefit from his experience, and also I think he’s a good benchmark.
“Now I have the opportunity to kind of measure myself and have the pressure, and kind of try and deliver under pressure, too.”
