It’s about it

  • Mick Schumacher’s contract with the Haas F1 racing team will not be renewed.

  • German compatriot Nico Hülkenberg should start for him.

  • German media reports that confirmation is still awaited.

The departure of Mick Schumacher from the Formula 1 team is not surprising. The 23-year-old did not have a successful season. However, there was still some hope that a contract extension might be enough. Until today: As reported by Sport1, it is now clear that Schumacher, the son of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, must leave the racing team. He says he already knows about it.

Nico Hülkenberg, a former Sauber driver, is to take over for Schumacher. Several media reported the change on Sunday after the Brazilian GP, ​​but there is still no confirmation.

The news came sooner than expected

“Yes, it is,” team principal Günther Steiner replied in São Paulo when asked if the racing team had already selected a teammate alongside Kevin Magnussen, who was set for 2023. “We are in the process of clarifying the details of how we will do it and what we will do.”

And further: “Expect an announcement sometime next week,” Steiner said, looking ahead to the season finale in Abu Dhabi. “But I won’t reveal the day, because then everyone will be waiting for that day. But that’s coming next week.” It only took a few hours for the news to go public.

Alfa-Sauber employees en route

Schumacher has often dismantled his Haas this year, as he did in Monaco (see video above) – costing the racing team dearly. However, in Brazil, it was not the German’s fault that the accident almost happened. Because an Alfa-Sauber employee was at Schumacher’s pit stop dangerous on the road, the pits of both teams were right next to each other. Fortunately, there was no collision.
