Haas, Steiner: “If Schumacher does well he will have the opportunity to go to Ferrari”

The Haas with Ferrari in the background. The TP of the American team Gunther Steiner admitted that Mick Schumacher, part of the Maranello Academy, could become an official driver of the Red in the future if he were to do well with the Kannapolis team.

The German, who was crowned Formula 2 champion in 2020, made his Formula 1 debut last year, occasionally leading the VF-21 to qualify for Q2 despite one-half inferior to the competition.

The new season will see Mick Schumacher on track at the wheel of the Haas for the second consecutive year, but at the same time he will share the role of reserve driver of Ferrari with Antonio Giovinazzi engaged in the Formula E championship with the Dragon team.

I hope so but I don’t hope so. Because if he’s okay, I don’t want him to go away, but if he’s okay, he’ll go away – said Steiner, interviewed by GPFans – Ferrari has supported his entire career. I know what the deal is, I think if he does a good job he will have the opportunity. 2021 was a learning year. The pressure will be much greater this year”.
