Mick Schumacher, who will be the third driver at Mercedes next year, ready for redemption

Flunked by Haas this season, Mick Schumacher in 2023 will be the third driver at Mercedes. A setback in his professional growth, but the son of the art does not believe his career as a Formula 1 driver is doomed: “I’m generally not a cocky or arrogant guy. I’ve always been told not to be, and the lesson has stuck with me since I was very young. I don’t care what people think of me because I know what I do, and the moment I have a way to prove it, people will notice. So I don’t need to flaunt it to the four winds,” he told The Race.

“I think I deserve Formula 1, because I have proven that I can be fast, not just this year. I am a Formula 2 and Formula 3 champion, and people have forgotten that now. I’ve always proven myself: in whatever category I started in, I always got to the top fairly quickly. And I can do that in Formula 1, too: I can win the world championship at the right time, with the right car.”
