In an interview with RTL, Steiner said, “He’s very calm, very prepared, I’ve never seen him panic, never excited, which I think is pretty cool for a 22-year-old. He works hard. He prepares meticulously, he is very focused.

“I think he has little else on his mind at the moment than getting into Formula 1 successfully and having a good first year, even if it will be difficult. He is very realistic with what is feasible and what is not.”

“He always keeps his people motivated. As if he’s been doing this for a long time. He leaves nothing to chance. I think that’s beautiful and remarkable,” Steiner explained.

Schumacher admits the crash at Imola was driven by anger

The Emilia GP is a race that the young German would like to forget. He had spun around the track, which resulted in him losing his front wing. He later revealed that the crash occurred due to the fact he couldn’t keep his cool.

As quoted by PlanetF1, Schumacher Jr, said, “To be honest, I don’t really know what happened. It went quite quickly, I just lost it and didn’t manage to recover it before the wall.

“I think my driving afterwards was quite driven by my anger. I don’t know if you saw it on the feed, but I had a few lock-ups and went into the gravel and stuff.”

“Overall, I think that’s something we have to learn from, to regroup myself a bit quicker. In general, I just think I wanted to catch up as quick as I could but unfortunately, we were a few laps down,” Mick concluded.

The German will race the third race of his debut season in Portugal. Schumacher Jr would like to learn from his mistakes and improve on driving to get better results for Haas.
