Schumacher needs to “leave Ferrari now”

Mick Schumacher currently does not have a contract for the coming season in Formula 1. An extension at Haas is allegedly open but mentor Sebastian Vettel is said to have given the 23-year-old son of Michael Schumacher some concrete advice for his sporting future. He needs to leave the shackles of Ferrari now.

This weekend, Formula 1 returns from its summer break with the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix. However, the past few weeks have by no means been really quiet in the motor sport’s top Formula. With “Silly Season” gathering pace it is unclear whether Mick Schumacher will still drive in Formula 1 next year or be left without a race seat.

The German’s contract expires at the end of the season. However, a new contract with Haas is not in sight at the moment. First of all, Schumacher still has to convince team boss Günther Steiner.


Meanwhile, the former Formula 2 champion is being linked with a move to Alpine. The team is still looking for a successor for Fernando Alonso, who is taking over from Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin.

Ferrari is likely to have a say in Schumacher’s future decision, as the Haas driver is a member of the Scuderia’s junior academy. As reported by “Sport1”, Sebastian Vettel is said to have advised the 23-year-old to leave the Ferrari Drivers Academy. Apparently, the four-time world champion gives Schumacher better chances on the market as a free agent.


In the end, however, the best self-promotion for a new contract would be appealing results in the remaining nine races of the season.

At the moment, Schumacher is in 15th place in the drivers’ standings with twelve points. This puts the Haas driver ten points behind his team-mate Kevin Magnussen.

However, the trend has been pointing in the right direction in recent months. However, this is not a guarantee for continued employment with the US racing team.

  1. Don’t say crap about me. I’m telling him to leave Ferrari so he has a better chance of ending up somewhere else.

  2. I feel bad for mick. He was allowed a cheat car in f3 and f2 and shoved into f1 before he should have. And vettel protected him from the stewards.

    And he doesn’t deserve to be there.

    Only thing mick has is that every car company want a German driver to push German market car sales.

    If mick were any other nationality he would be dropped this year for certain. He may get 1 year at Alpine or somewhere to push car sales. But there are too many in the waiting drivers that can actually deliver points, not break cars and have a nationality that the auto manufacturer can leverage for sales marketing.

  3. Listen, you people you have to understand the problem. Michael is underachieving, Kevin isn’t a world champion but he is good and he is showing Michael the way to go for sure. He has impressed me. I think Michael pushed too much to get into F1 early. Maybe we should have held him back just a little. But then he would probably have left the academy for an F1 drive with a different team.
    Whadda ya gonna do?
