Mick Schumacher is currently fighting for his future in Formula 1. The Haas driver has not yet had a contract for the coming season. It is not yet clear whether and how things will continue after two years. Team boss Günther Steiner spoke about the future of his protégé in an interview with RTL/ntv. The Haas boss said that the chances of further cooperation on “Fifty-Fifty”. However, no decision has been made yet. There is currently no development.
Steiner then went into even more detail: “The question is what will make us better as a team in the future. We don’t always want to finish seventh or eighth. You want to go up.”
Unless there is a further collaboration with Haas, Schumacher does not have many options. Currently, all drivers with a super license are on the Haas list anyway. Theoretically, Nico Hulkenberg would also be a potential candidate. Theoretically, there would still be a vacancy at Williams. The Red Bull junior team has announced the extension of Yuki Tsunoda’s contract. That would also close this door.
Although Pierre Gasly still has a contract with AlphaTauri for 2023, he is still considered a candidate at Alpine. According to information from “Bild”, Schumacher does not really play a role in AlphaTauri’s plans either. The fact is that the relationship between Steiner and Schumacher was not always easy. However, after initial accidents and difficulties, Mick Schumacher was able to stabilize and even score the first points.
