“I’m looking forward to the whole season, but Spa stands out. It’s a beautiful story: it was 30 years ago when my father first drove there in Formula 1,” Mick Schumacher explained.
Michael Schumacher started his first F1 at the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix under unusual circumstances: regular Jordanian driver Bertrand Gachot was imprisoned after a fight with a London taxi driver. The German future star suffered an unfortunate clutch failure in the second corner, but shone in the qualifiers, beating his experienced teammate Andre de Cesaris by seven tenths.
Mick Schumacher sets his goals high
Current Formula 2 champion Mick Schumacher will compete this year for the Haas F1 team. He has already tried the F1 machine on tests with Ferrari and is excited to compete.
“Formula 1 cars are so fast and feel so good on the track. It’s something I’ve always wanted to experience. I’ve already gotten my first taste in Abu Dhabi. Driving these fast cars is great fun.”
With ambitious championship ambitions, Mick Schumacher looked back on F1’s most important moments of his life.
“If you look back on all the races, my father’s first world title with Ferrari is definitely a moment for me,” he said.
Mick is signed to Ferrari Driving Academy and is eager to follow in his father’s footsteps.
Asked about his 2021 goals, Mick said: “To see a big improvement from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.”
After his F3 and F2 championships, who wouldn’t bet against him that one day he will realize his dreams of Formula 1 and lift the World Driving Championship trophy? Mick, however, lowers expectations, saying, “In the end, I focus on myself and try to do the best I can.”
