Mick Schumacher getting comfortable at Haas

The F2 world champion was the Haas factory getting comfortable in his new seat and preparing for the new year in racing. While he was in the UK during his self-quarantine, he was pushing himself, doing his training regime to be fully for his first year on the grid.

However, the German driver already has some experience behind the wheel. He drove the car during a free practice session at the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi. This gives him more of an edge over his teammate, Nikita Mazepin.

The Schumacher name returns to the grid

Mick is the son of F1 legend, Michael Schumacher, who has won seven world titles and putting himself in the hall of fame on the F1 wall. The 21-year-old knows that he brings heavyweight on his shoulders.

The German has immense talent behind the wheel and proved that in the F2. He was crowned the champion and hopes to bring some of that mentality and experience to the 2021 grid.
