“It would be a dream”- Mick Schumacher on driving Ferrari in the near future and adding onto his father’s success with the Tifosi.
Mick Schumacher’s Formula 1 debut is undoubtedly adding excitement to the 2021 season, where the offspring of arguable the greatest F1 driver takes on the current elite motorsport batch.
While Haas is the present, Mick Schumacher dared to speak about a future, which might become his prerogative, if he makes an impactful debut, and that is a seat at Ferrari.
“I am delighted to be at Haas,” he said to the PlanetF1. “It’s my Formula 1 debut, and I would like to do it in the best possible way. Then we will see what the future has in store for me.”
“I don’t deny it; it would be a dream to drive a Ferrari as my father did in the past.” Mick was the favourite to join F1 last year after securing his title win in F2, as Ferrari views a bright prospect in him.
F1: I have always thought about it
Schumacher then explains that before he stepped onto Formula 3, the motorsport ceiling felt him like a distant dream, but eventually, as he progressed, he found it achievable.
“I have always thought about it,” he said. “I started to believe it after the success in F3. In F2, I had problems at the beginning, but last year I won, and here I am.”
Meanwhile, Ferrari has planned to give him at least two years before assessing him for the big move. Apart from him, Callum Ilott was also promoted as a Ferrari test driver, who will also be involved in GT Racing.
On the other hand, Ferrari has recently signed Carlos Sainz, and Mattia Binotto has already clarified that the duo Charles Leclerc and the Spaniard is a long-term project. So, Ferrari’s lineup in 2023 is hard to imagine.
