Ferrari Junior Mick Schumacher 2022: high expectations


In 2021, Ferrari trainee Mick Schumacher was able to complete his Formula 1 apprenticeship carefree. The tasks will change in 2022: Haas wants to move into midfield, and Mick works as a Ferrari reservist.

Mick Schumacher took the pressure off the boiler himself before his first Grand Prix season, as he explained in the last part of the Formula 1 World Cup in 2021: “I consciously went into the season without expectations, so I am now no better or worse than that expected. On the whole, everything went well. “

Haas team boss Günther Steiner had stated: “Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin should learn the Formula 1 craft in their first season. It was clear to us that the drivers would also make mistakes. “

While Mick Schumacher had his Moscow stable mate Mazepin under control, the German Formula 2 champion of 2020 actually had one or two accidents. Mick says: “It was always clear to me that I would make mistakes, and in my opinion mistakes are part of development. I don’t dwell on it for long if a mistake happens to me, I just want to understand what happened and then do better next time with the lesson I have learned. “

“In addition, I am of the opinion: Better to make one or two mistakes this season in which we cannot fight for points than in 2022, when – I hope – we will have a more competitive car.”

In the coming season, Mick Schumacher wants to get involved in midfield. In Portugal, Mick had a nice wheel-to-wheel battle with the Canadian Williams driver Nicholas Latifi. Mick: “That was my first real duel in Formula 1, and I really enjoyed it. That was a nice foretaste of what I hope to be able to do quite often in the coming season. “

This increases expectations: Mick Schumacher wants to prove that he can not only assert himself against his teammate, but also in the hard-fought midfield.

And the next season is groundbreaking from another perspective: Mick Schumacher is Ferrari’s official reservist for some of the world championship races – on all those GP weekends when Antonio Giovinazzi will be in Formula E.

Should Carlos Sainz or Charles Leclerc not be operational, Mick Schumacher would make his GP debut with Ferrari.

Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto already announced in early 2021 where the young Schumacher’s journey should lead: “We put Mick as one of our young drivers at Haas. This is a wonderful opportunity. The goal of our junior program is not to train drivers for Formula 1, but to train drivers for the Ferrari racing team. “
