Mick Schumacher will make his debut for the Haas outfit at the season opener in March. In a recent interview, the German talked about his new team, his aspirations, and his favorite Formula 1 moment.
The son of seven-times world champion, Michael Schumacher has a huge legacy to live up to. He has stated that he is used to the attention and is prepared to tackle F1 exactly as he did in his previous race seasons.
Sky Sport asked Mick about his greatest F1 experience and the German recalled a special moment from Michael’s F1 career. “If you look back on all the races, my father’s first world championship title with Ferrari is definitely a goosebump moment for me when I look at it,” he said.
The German won his first Formula 2 championship in 2020 and warranted his promotion to Haas F1 team. However, Formula 1 is a whole different level of pressure and skill. In the interview, the German also opened up about the biggest change he needs to adapt to during his transition.
He said, “I think the race distances are just completely different. Also how you have to behave in the races, all communication with the team is different, but it will be very exciting. I’m looking forward to it.” (via Google Translate)
However, with an F2 championship in his second year, Mick has proved that he can adapt and learn quickly. Meanwhile, Haas F1 is going through a negative decline in their performance over the last two years.
It will be important to see how the German’s inclusion in the team will impact their performance. Do you believe Mick Schumacher is a future championship contender? Maybe an F1 race win or maybe his first points in the big leagues will change the young German’s favorite Formula 1 experience.
