Mick Schumacher will join Mercedes as the third man.
Now that’s a fact. Mick Schumacher (23, 42 races, no podium, 12 world championship points) will not have a Formula 1 cockpit next season. In the past few weeks it had already become clear that things were going to be tight for the Germans, and now the Haas team has officially confirmed Schumi-Aus.
Team boss Gunther Steiner: “Mick’s development as a driver during his time with the Haas F1 Team – which culminated in his first Formula 1 success at the start of this season. Although we have decided to go our separate ways in the future, the whole team wishes Mick all the very best For the next steps in his career and beyond.”
“i DESERVE this”
Schumacher himself spoke shortly afterwards via Instagram. There he writes: “This will be my last race with the Haas F1 Team. I don’t want to hide that I am very disappointed with the decision not to renew our contract.”
He has been improving steadily knowing he “deserves a place in Formula 1”. Shumi continues, “My fire is burning in Formula 1 and I will fight hard to get back on the grid.”
But in Abu Dhabi, his Formula 1 adventure ends for the time being, and he will go to Mercedes as the third man. Countryman Nico Hulkenberg (35, 180 races, no podium) inherits the Haas cockpit. (my mom)
