It is not yet clear whether Mick Schumacher 2021 will ascend to formula 1. Michael Schumacher’s son is currently leading the Formula Two Championship, which is why he will be given good chances to ride in the royal class next year. In addition, he is part of the Ferrari junior program and thus has strong supporters in the back.
AlphaTauri team leader Franz Tost definitely trusts Schumacher to jump into formula 1. He’s very mature. I’ve known him since his card days. He has developed superbly,”he says in the”AvD Motorsport Magazine”on”Sport1″and recalls:”He has emerged victorious in every race class. He will also stand in Formula 1 his husband.”
“No matter where he goes – he will show that he can successfully drive Formula 1”, Tost is sure. 2016 became Schumacher Vice Champion in the German and Italian Formula 4, 2018 he won the Formula Three European Championship and this year he is fighting for the Formula Two title. Tost is therefore sure: “He can withstand the pressure [in formula 1]
“He has proved this in the junior classes. I am convinced that Mick will also be successful in Formula One,”says the Austrian. This does not mean that Schumacher can already fight 2021 for victories.” He’s gonna need his learning phase. Until a new driver knows where Formula One goes, he needs two or three years,”says Tost.
“Mick is a very conscientious driver who studies everything intensively and deals with the technical issues. That is why success is pre-programmed,”Tost is sure. Similarly, TV expert Christian Danner explains: “He is not someone who comes in and sets the world on fire. But he is one who has finally succeeded everywhere.”
Danner praises Schumacher’s mentality
With the pressure that the name Schumacher brings, Mick will also be able to cope.” The boy has had the ultimate pressure since he first sat in the card. The personal pressure since his father’s accident,”recalls Danner. So he comes to terms with pressure, “where a normal person would have gone through the gully a long time ago.”
“The man is absolutely top in this relationship,” Danner praises. Three weekends before the end Schumacher leads in formula 2 with eight points ahead of Callum Ilott, who is also Ferrari-Junior. He was most convincing with Constance. Thus he won a race in 2020, but always scored for it in the last ten races.
