Schumacher deserves better than Haas, says ex-F1 driver

Mick Schumacher deserves to be in a stronger team than Haas, says ex-Formula 1 driver Hans-Joachim Stuck.

Schumacher is currently in his second season racing in F1, and has displayed some strong performances at recent grands prix.

However, they came after a difficult start to the 2022 campaign, as he was consistently out-paced by team-mate Kevin Magnussen, as well as being involved in a number of high-speed crashes.

Schumacher doesn’t yet have a contract in place for 2023, and there is speculation that he may not race for the Haas team next year.

However Stuck, who is a two-time F1 podium finisher, thinks that the German can find a better home than the US-owned squad.

“He has proven his skills this season,” Stuck told Eurosport. “He belongs in a car that’s better than the Haas. 

“If it doesn’t work out with another team for any reason, he just has to do it with Haas for another year. 

“But if Mick can’t find another cockpit, I wouldn’t understand Haas putting on a circus there. Because they won’t get any better [driver].”

Stuck has warned Schumacher not to take a year out with the aim of returning in 2024, stating it is crucial that he builds on the current momentum he has.

“He has to stick with it, show himself, and set an example, as he has already done this year. But not racing in Formula 1 for a year would be deadly,” he said. 

“I would be very surprised if Schumacher didn’t find a job anywhere. He shows impeccable performances, the people in charge can see that. 

“He also has a great name. A team looking for a young driver can do no better than sign a Mick Schumacher.”
