Mick Schumacher may not have had the best rookie season, but he impressed everyone. The young German comprehensively outpaced his teammate Nikita Mazepin throughout the season. He also put in some impressive performances in races, despite the Haas being the slowest car on the grid.

As reported by Faz.net, the German driver is hopeful for a better 2022 season. But when asked what is his wish for the next season, his answer was a bit surprising.

“That I could race for the championship next year. That’s unrealistic, yes, but if I didn’t want that, then I would be the wrong driver for Formula 1,” said Mick.

Mick’s wish to win the championship might not come true for the 2022 season. Despite his skills and talent behind the wheel, it is very unlikely that he will win a championship with Haas.

Schumacher mentioned he found it easy to integrate himself in Formula 1 in his rookie season. Although he crashed a few times, he could bounce back stronger and put in competitive performances.

“It was easy for me to get in. I immediately felt very comfortable in the car. Well-being is the key to me. It is so much fun. The cars are so much faster than in the junior classes, the speed at all levels is much higher. 

That fascinates me. That’s where I wanted to go. I immediately felt that I could pick up the pace.” said the Haas driver.
