Although Haas is an American team with Russian sponsorship, they are based in Banbury, England, and comprise a majority of English mechanics. Therefore, the young Schumacher is afraid to wear a German jersey in front of his team; he thinks it’ll lead to a fight!

Speaking to Bild, Mick Schumacher says: “I have to see what I can find. I think in the end I will go into the evening a little more neutrally. I don’t want to risk a fight.”

Mick Schumacher facing seat issues in Haas F1 car

The 22-year-old revealed that he has been facing issues with his seat in his Haas car since the beginning of the season. Although the German admits the current situation does not hamper his driving performance and his team plans to fix it after the summer break.

A video surfaced after the French Grand Prix where the four-time world champion, Sebastian Vettel, was seen inspecting Schumacher’s car. He is like a mentor to Mick and helps him the same way the latter’s father, Michael Schumacher, helped him during the early stages of his Formula 1 career.

And ahead of the Styrian GP Mick Schumacher said: “So basically, I’ve been sitting in a crooked position since the beginning of the season just because the seat is central, but I am not straight. We’ve actually been talking about it before and I took the opportunity to show him.”
