“At least I had the chance to work”- Mick Schumacher sees positive points after he failed to make debut in Formula 1 at Eifel GP.
Mick Schumacher’s awaited debut in Formula 1 was causing the headlines as he was set to drive an Alfa Romeo in the FP1 of the Eifel GP and it was around 8 years when someone from Schumacher lineage was set to step into F1.
However, it was spoilt by the hazardous weather at Nurburgring which failed the helicopter ambulance to be deployed at its designated area.
Hence, both sessions on the day 1 were cancelled, directly delaying Schumacher and Callum Ilott’s debut in Formula. But he is not disappointed and is only willing to see the bright side of it.
“At least I had the chance to work with the team, to attend the engineering meetings and to talk to the mechanics. I wanted to learn more that weekend, and I succeeded.”
“I was able to follow how the team works, the whole philosophy behind how a racing team works in a GP weekend.” He further said.

“Schumacher and Ilott will have to challenge their Formula 2 races there and concentrate on that”. He concluded.
