Mick Schumacher is laser-focused on 2021

With the opening race just weeks away, Schumacher is putting in all the work before he finds himself behind the wheel in Bahrain. The German is currently in the UK and raring to go for his first race.

The German knows how important it is to be fit to be in motorsport. He said, ” In Formula 1, the G-forces are much higher, so that there is more stress on the neck.

“Accordingly, I adjusted my training program a little in the days before the planned assignment.

Expectations weighing heavy on the German’s shoulders

Mick is the son of an F1 legend, Michael Schumacher, who has won 7 world titles. The 21-year-old knows that he has some huge shoes to fill and hopes to do well.

Schumacher is also part of the Ferrari driver academy and is likely to drive for the Italian team just like his dad. However, he has to focus on getting the most out of the Haas car.
