Mick Schumacher is moving into Formula 1 from next year. The contract with the son of Michael Schumacher was signed by the American team Haas.
It is noteworthy that Mick Schumacher will make his debut in Formula 1 exactly 30 years after his father. His partner will be another newcomer – Nikita Mazepin. The drivers will take the wheel of a Haas car for the first time at tests after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The Haas team was not chosen randomly. Schumacher Jr. is a member of the Ferrari Academy, and Haas buys Italian engines. Previously, the option was considered with Alfa Romeo (they also have Ferrari engines), but they decided not to change the composition of the drivers.
It should be noted that Mick Schumacher was not invited to Haas because of his last name. In 2018, he won the Formula 3 championship, and now he is the leader in the Formula 2 standings and has every chance to become a champion there. So the son is just like his father.
