Team Principal & Drivers
Oh boy, oh boy what do we have here? A name we all recognise, Mick Schumacher, the son of 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher, here to disrupt Lewis Hamilton’s assault on an 8th world title. Can he do that? Probably not in a Haas, unless he’s got a streak of that cunning Schumacher blood.
Can you imagine in the final race of the season, Lewis Hamilton needs to lap Mick Schumacher on the final lap to win his 8th title, could there be a whoops moment as Hamilton is ever so slightly clipped? Not likely to be fair, having heard Mick Schumacher speak, he speaks highly of Lewis. I apologise, I got carried away with that image in my head for a moment and forgot about the Haas car and the other new driver Nikita Mazepin, not unlike Yuki Tsunoda, he was an exciting watch in Formula Two last season, I hope he brings that style into F1, we will be in for some exciting racing even at the far end of the grid.
I have a bit of an issue talking about Haas, not only haven’t I seen them on the track like everyone else, I haven’t seen their car yet, as that will be revealed in Bahrain during the test (still 4 days away, deadlines mean I’m writing prior to the test). What I can tell you is that it’s going to have a red, white and blue livery, assuming that is to show their American heritage.
I’m pretty happy to be going back to a race track because at the moment we have too much time to think about other things. Once we get going everything is focused on going racing – there’s less time for BS. I’m really looking forward to it.
Two exciting drivers from F2, a team that knows racing inside out, that haven’t quite got the measure of Formula One yet. It’s bound to happen at some point, this team of professional racers will achieve success in Formula One.
Can Mick Schumacher emulate what his father did in the sport? He is young enough, he’s talented, so why not. Will we see him in the red of Ferrari one day? Yes, most definitely, this is why he is at Haas, a customer of Ferrari engines. You know what would make 2021 special, regardless of what happens on the track, would be to see Michael Schumacher able to make it to a race to watch his son. We are all still thinking about you Michael, and we never give up hope of seeing you again.
