Haas drops mick schumacher for 2023 f1 seat

The Schumacher family have backed their new protégé after seven-time world champion Michael’s son Mick Schumacher was confirmed to have been kicked by Haas.

Michael’s brother and former driver Ralf Schumacher criticized both the team and general manager Gunther Steiner when he heard he would be replaced next season by 23-year-old veteran Nico Hulkenberg. “Mick showed potential, but whatever he did, Tim and Gunther Steiner were never satisfied.” Ralf, who has won 180 F1 races and six victories, told Sky Sports in Germany. “Not all behavior can be explained by normal standards and should be almost personal. “I don’t think Gunter Steiner can get along with anyone else sitting in the middle of Haas. He’s very happy to be in the front row. He’s a self-promoter.”

Steiner is an Italian-American who became famous for his colorful contributions to the later canceled Netflix series Drive to Survive. “I try to be good at my job. It’s not about attention, it’s not about me, it’s about doing things right. You can’t tell people not to look at you if they’re worried. I don’t do this on purpose. “I don’t think we need to be defensive here. Anyone can do and say what they want, and I’ll do what I think is best for the team and leave it there.”

“Not. With Mick, being with Mick is not a problem for me. I’ve pretty much cleared the air with her and I know it’s not him. It has nothing to do with it.”

Schumacher, who received favorable comparisons with Nikita Mazepin in his debut season last year but has struggled with Kevin Magnussen. This season, said he had not given up hope of a return to F1. “I’ve had ups and downs but the trend has always been up. And I think that’s the most important thing,” said the 2020 F2 champion. “I’m entering my second year in Formula 1. I don’t know if you can call last year a year. But it was a tough year and I fell behind.

“We think what I had to learn to play and fight in the midfield [for this season] was to be able to do that all year.

“I definitely want to stay and now I have time, so I will look at all the options and yes, hopefully I will take the right one that will give me a bright future. “I know it’s good for me and I want to put myself in a position where it has to be discussed and analyzed whether it’s a reserve or a unit. And there are people around me who believe in me and advise me, so I hope. to hear from you soon.
