The first season in Formula 1 of Mick Schumacher it is turning out to be anything but simple. His Haas is not competitive, and the German can not help but compete with Mazepin fighting in the rear. Finding motivation in a team perpetually at the bottom of the grid and with a lot of financial problems may seem like a challenge to many, but that’s not the case with the 22-year-old native of Genolier.
“I think after every weekend we all improve and learn something new”Confided the driver to the media at the end of the Austrian Grand Prix. That of the German turned out to be another difficult Sunday ended in eighteenth position, but where for the eighth time this season he managed to place himself in front of his Russian teammate. “It wasn’t an easy race, but we still had to fight in the early laps. I got off to a good start, but in the end we have to settle for what we managed to achieve. Now we will analyze all the data to find some tenths that can allow us to get closer to the others “Schumacher explained. The son of art feels he is making constant progress: “Personally I feel like I’m getting stronger and spending time with the team is really nice and I can’t wait for Silverstone to arrive“.
Even Guenther Steiner, given the situation at Haas, does not intend to focus too much on results. The Team Principal, in fact, wants Schumacher and Mazepin to continue to grow and improve without too much pressure: “In today’s race we got the result we expected. Both of our drivers have made a solid race, but we can’t do better at the moment. The learning phase is progressing well, and Nikita and Mick are improving“.
