Haas vacated both their cockpits earlier today. The team had hinted at such a move and have acted earlier than expected. Both the drivers, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, received the news that they have been terminated for 2021. Guenther Steiner was certain that his team needed a complete transformation. Therefore, he would like his cockpits to have personalities like him.
For a long time, Ferrari and Haas have been in talks about a seat for a Junior FDA driver. Till Nurburgring, the driver in context, was Callum Ilott. However, Mick Schumacher’s place in the Alfa Romeo is uncertain. Now, will Ferrari push the F2 champion to the Haas camp?
Mick Schumacher and Callum Ilott are the two drivers from F2 that have the required eligibility to make it to F1. Mick Schumacher has been on the Haas list for a long time. But, as Ferrari linked Mick to Alfa Romeo, Haas was out. However, as Alfa Romeo is eager to carry their present drivers ahead into the new season, Haas are more than happy to take in Schumacher Jr.
“The Schumacher name is one of the biggest in Formula 1. Mick drives very well too, leads Formula 2. He is very strong this year. Who wouldn’t want a Schumacher, especially in this form? But the decision as to whom Ferrari sends on is up to Ferrari.” expressed Guenther Steiner.
All things apart, the next question that comes to the forefront is whom to partner Mick with? For now, Nikita Mazepin is certain to be driving alongside the FDA driver. Mazepin’s story is like Lance Stroll’s story at Racing Point. His father is poised to make a generous donation to the American team to book a cockpit for his son if rumors hold any value.
Mick Schumacher’s arrival in F1 has already left German fans in a state of excitement. The sheer joy of seeing a Schumacher battle his way in a Grand Prix is unfathomable for fans. The sport has the best memories of Michael Schumacher. Furthermore, the pundits are certain that the manner in which Mick is performing means that he will not disappoint.
Haas may just have caught the golden fish for 2021. A fantastic driver can win races for you, and Mick is all about that. Although the format may overwhelm him, he is a quick learner and will deliver fast.
