Mick Schumacher urges Haas to review the late switch to Intermediate tires at the Japanese Grand Prix.

After the Japanese GP was resumed, drivers began switching from Wet tires to Intermediates. Schumacher was the last driver to do so. The Haas driver crossed the finish line in 18th place but was promoted to P17 after Pierre Gasly’s time penalty.

“I know that our car’s very strong, especially on the Inter,” Schumacher said.

“Unfortunately, we put on the Inter a bit too late, so we’ll have to review that and see how in future we can assess this maybe a bit better and take the right choices so that we are still in the points.”

Nevertheless, the German was delighted with the fact that he led the race at one point.

“I think that, in the end, we are always smarter, right?

“The fact that we were running P3 at some point, and even I think did our first leading meters in P1, this is something positive.

“But, on the other hand, points were up for grabs. And, unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get them, but definitely, the speed is there.”
