Mick Schumacher’s presence in F1 is not assured. Haas isn’t rushing to renew his driver two this year, waiting to see if he reaffirms his typical run from the second half of his sophomore year at every level he’s been. Meanwhile, he does not convince the Ferrari people too much either (Leclerc and Sainz Jr is abysmally above Schumi’s son).
In this context, Ralf Schumacher, Mick’s uncle, believes that the very good work of Felipe Drugovich in F2 can leave the young German without a seat for 2023. “As a general rule, August or September is the time when you look for drivers. I mean, there are also some from Formula 2 who deserve it, of course, and they also have money. Drugovich is involved there, ”he specified in relation to the Brazilian.
And here resonate words that the ineffable Bernie Ecclestone could say on this matter: “A Brazilian in F1 is more important than Mick Schumacher in F1”. More than a German? And yes, seeing how little the Germans are willing to shell out to host an F1 race since Schumi’s retirement.
Drugovich plays in all the remaining lotteries, which are few: between Mick and the Brazilian, the remaining seats in Haas and Williams could be distributed.
