Formula One is going to the United States for the next race of the nail-biting 2021 season. The United States Grand Prix will be happening at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas on October 25. Another racing series that recently visited Texas was NASCAR, a motorsport category that is much more popular and widespread among Americans than F1. The NASCAR Cup Series race recently took place at the Texas Motor Speedway, and Haas F1 team’s Mick Schumacher was spotted at the race, visiting as a guest.

Mick’s season so far

2021 is Mick Schumacher’s rookie season in F1. Coming into F1 on the back of a brilliant title victory in F2, a lot is expected of Mick. However, he is unfortunately stuck with possibly the slowest car on the grid, so there’s absolutely no fair comparison to be made to evaluate his performance.

The only fair comparison would be with his teammate, and Mick has dominated comfortably in that department; He has been much better than his teammate Nikita Mazepin, outqualifying him in almost all the races, and has finished in better positions than him in 13 of the 16 races so far in the season.
