Is Mick Schumacher Leaving F1? Did He Quit Haas F1 Team?

Is Mick Schumacher Leaving F1

Is Mick Schumacher leaving F1? The news that F1 racing fans have been binging over and over again after he tweeted about his departure from Haas.

The tweet of Schumacher’s departure comes as no surprise, as the sources first suggested several months ago that the team would not retain him, and he was set to be dropped from Ferrari’s young driver program.

Gunther Steiner, team boss, continued to insist that no decision had been made and that Mick remained in the frame for possible retention.

The decision left Mick looking for a new role in 2023, with the only possible F1 race seat remaining at Williams. However, that is only possible if Logan Sergeant fails to secure his super license in a final Formula 2 weekend in Abu Dhabi.

Mick will be an obvious racer for a reserve drive, potentially with several teams, while he has already been linked with Mercedes.

However, in the end, a list of expensive crashes over Mick’s two years with Haas affected his team’s standing. 

He could only achieve a little with an unmaintained car alongside fellow Nikita Mazepin in 2021, but this year, he had much more competitive racing monsters.

Mick’s teammate, Kevin, scored well with the car when he was clearly competitive in the starting races, but Mick failed to do so.  

Terrible crashes in qualifying in Saudia Arabia and the Monaco race did not help Schumacher’s cause. At the same time, he also lost points finish following a late collision with Sebastian Vettel in Miami.

What happened to him and where is he going?

Famous Formula F1 racer Michael Schumacher‘s son, Mick Schumacher, joined Haas in 2021 and 2022 to fulfilled his racing ambition like his father.

Mick was always groomed to make his way onto the F1 grid as a member of the Ferrari Driver School, but his career suffered a knock when Haas announced the end of their association with Mick, leaving him without a spot on the grid for the 2023 season.

Mick, who is now a reserve driver for Mercedes and McLaren, is eager to obtain a regular place. 

He concedes that his well-known surname may be both an advantage and a curse in his racing career. While it has opened possibilities for him, it also means he is always under scrutiny and has high expectations.

During the latest Netflix documentary ‘Drive To Survive Season 5’, Mick discussed the challenges he faces as a Schumacher, claiming he constantly needs to prove himself on the racing track. 

Despite the obstacles, Mick is determined to become a world champion and carry on his father’s legacy in the sport.
