Moreover, as per reports, Red Bull’s top executive Helmut Marko has grown interested in Andretti Autosport’s star driver Colton Herta. He could be a potential candidate at Red Bull’s sister team if Gasly leaves for Alpine.

With Porsche’s inclusion, can Mick Schumacher feature in Red Bull’s sister team?

Global automotive giants Porsche are all set to enter F1 with Red Bull in 2026. Porsche, being a German company, would prefer to have more Germans on board. On top of this, Helmut Marko has also been following Mick Schumacher‘s development lately.

Now, without wasting any time, fans have reacted to this possibility.

Moreover, reports say Mick Schumacher, a former Ferrari junior driver, might be dropped by Haas. Talking about Colton Herta, he still doesn’t have an FIA super license required to race in F1. So, Mick Schumacher seems to be a bright prospect as of now.
