Mick Schumacher admitted that the on-track battles help him learn the approach of other drivers.

Schumacher was involved in more battles this year thanks to Haas’ improvements. Furthermore, the German fought some of the frontrunners. He had a close battle with Max Verstappen on the final laps of the British GP and fought Lewis Hamilton at the Austrian GP the following week.

“It’s helpful in the way that I get to learn how they race,” Schumacher said in an interview with RacingNews365.com.

“I don’t know how long they will be racing for. For sure, Max will be racing for a few more years.

“It’s good to know how he approaches a fight, like a one-to-one battle. So it’s great experience, and, hopefully, I’ll have a lot more of those in the future.”

Schumacher added that the status of the driver he had fought did not matter to him.

“No, at that point it’s honestly just another driver.

“[There’s no] difference between them. [But] if they are a lot faster – like if it was a Ferrari or if it was a Red Bull, and they have no problem – it’s very hard for us to fight, so it makes no real sense because we all just use our tires.”
