Mick Schumacher is already taking the F1 circuit by storm. He is hardly in the grid, but it is still enough to make the press go crazy. Earlier he made an appearance as Hamilton equaled his father’s record to present Michael’s helmet.

However, in 2021, he is going to do a lot more than just present helmets and congratulate racers.

After Alfa Romeo retained both their drivers for the next year, Mick’s next destination could be Haas. A regular at Maranello, Ferrari also has a say in the Haas cockpit. Using that authority it is probable that Ferrari will push Mick towards Haas. The Formula 2 racer is ready to swim with the sharks and the FDA will get him there.
