Mick Schumacher has managed to silence his critics in the last two Formula 1 races. But for former world champion Nico Rosberg, changing to a top team would be too soon.
The curve figure of Mick Schumacher (23) has recently shown a clear upward trend. After tough months in Formula 1, the Haas driver finally made his mark and took the first points of his young racing career at Silverstone.
At Spielberg, he topped his scores from last weekend and finished sixth. German Formula 1 World Champion Nico Rosberg (37) is also pleased with these results.
Nico Rosberg: Changing to the first team would be hasty than Schumacher
“Mick’s had a tough few weeks, and we’re all glad he’s made great progress now,” Rosberg said in an interview with Eurosport.de. The Haas pilot has had a lot to take in the past few months. “When I open newspapers these days, I don’t read any criticism of him at all.”
But is performance enough for a big team next season? For former Formula 1 driver Hans-Joachim Stock (71), the answer is yes: “When the ring driver starts to turn around for a big team, Mick Schumacher will be at the top of the list.”
However, Rosberg is clearly against this: “I don’t see it that way. He still needs time in his development. Past races have shown that.”
Nico Rosberg warns Mick Schumacher
At the start of the season, Michael Schumacher’s 53-year-old son caused three accidents with millions in damages – now seemingly forgotten. “That’s the crazy thing about our sport,” Rosberg noted at the fast pace of Formula 1.
“He should take his time before targeting a big team. The 2016 world champion assured that you don’t have to rush into anything.” At 23 years old, Mick still has plenty of time to make his way in Formula 1 – after all, with Ferrari in pole position, many of the top teams are already watching the development of the Haas pilot.
Haas is also expecting another major update to its car at the Hungarian Grand Prix (31 July). The car is already one of the five fastest cars on the track. Then it can rise again to Ibn Shumi in terms of area. (the father)
