Next season, Mick Schumacher will no longer be a titular Formula 1 driver. Indeed, the German was ousted from Haas following his poor results. He bounced back to Mercedes where he will be the reserve driver behind Lewis Hamilton and George Russell with a view to finding a seat in 2024. Nico Rosberg is not as confident as him on this subject.
Mick Schumacher will watch the F1 a little further next year. It was not kept by Haas who decided to replace him with the veteran Nico Hulkenberg. Schumacher did not put all the chances on his side since he chained the bad results while his teammate Kevin Magnussen showed that the single-seater Haas had some under the hood to grab places of honour. The German pilot finally signed in favor of mercedesas 3rd driver, so as not to stray too far from the paddock with the aim of returning in 2024. Nico Rosbergthis mission promises to be very difficult.

“His career in the world of Grands Prix is now on hiatus”
» It was great to have Mick Schumacher on the grid and interesting to follow his performance in the premier class. Unfortunately, it was extremely difficult for him because he had the worst car on the grid for a certain period. It is therefore difficult to establish what were its strengths. Nevertheless, we must compare his performances to those of Kevin Magnussen. He lacked consistency and Magnussen responded when the car was able to produce something. Mick did not display these fitness peaks. And unfortunately, his career in the world of Grands Prix is now on hiatus » highlighted Nico Rosberg in comments relayed by Nextgen-Auto.
“It could be the end of his career in Formula 1”
Nico Rosberg goes further and even considers that the career of Mick Schumacher in F1 is in danger. » A reserve at Mercedes is a good option to stay in F1 and have a chance of returning to the grid in 2024. But Schumacher would also need the support of a sponsor because otherwise it could be the end of his Formula career. 1. There are enough interesting options for him: DTM, Formula E or even IndyCar. These championships are great too and he could have fun there. And I’m sure they would be happy to have Mick and his talent join their set. » told Rosberg.
