Mick Schumacher: following in father's footsteps - News

It’s official: Mick Schumacher has entered the (metaphorical) F1 building, and has big plans on following on in his great father’s footsteps. It was announced yesterday that Mick would be joining the Haas F1 team, as he makes his debut into the “big leagues”, stepping onto the Formula 1 grid next year. This has been a long time coming for Mick, who has been part of Formula 2, and has been long awaiting his time to step up and try and follow the greatness that has been paved before him.

In a somewhat fitting tale, Mick will make his debut 30 years on from when Michael made his debut - and of course, we all know the success that followed, as he became arguably the greatest F1 racer to ever step foot on the grid, setting records that were only just recently broken by a certain Mr Hamilton. Mick will no doubt have large aspirations and ambitions when it comes to his F1 career, and we’re sure he’ll carry the weight of expectancy on his shoulders with pride and determination. He is seemingly already an incredibly talented racer, and at just 21 years old, his future in Formula 1 and racing looks extremely promising.

Mick is currently leading the F2 Championships as the final week of racing approaches, and is a favourite to take home the crown, so this opportunity has been earned the hard way. Schumacher was absolutely elated by the news of his signing, saying “I want to acknowledge and extend my love to my parents. I know that I owe them everything. I have always believed that I would realise my dream of Formula 1. A huge thank you must also go to all the great motorsport fans out there who have supported me throughout my career. I will give it my all, as I always do, and I look forward to going on this journey together with Haas F1 and them."

Even at 21 years old, it seems that Mick Schumacher is carrying himself professionally, and seems more than up to the task of getting on the grid and showing the veterans of F1 what he can produce. Mick will wear the number 47, which is all the birth dates of his family added together, and the number 4 also happens to be the number he wore when he won Formula 3 and the number 7 is close to home - as that’s the amount of championships his father Michael won.

Although Mick has had the spotlight on him since a youngster, it now seems like this man is coming of age, and is ready to tackle the newest career challenge yet! An extremely exciting prospect for us F1 fans and we cannot wait to see him get on track!
