Schumacher is getting closer to the exit in Formula 1

Mick Schumacher’s F1 future looks increasingly uncertain, with him likely not to drive among the best next season. The German Haas driver is out of contract, having earlier in the season been criticized by team management for needing to score more points – something that has only happened twice so far this year.

Mick finished eighth in Great Britain and sixth in Austria, and in the nine races since, he has been well outside the top ten in the final standings.

Overall, he has 12 points in 41 starts so far.

The latest news about the composition of the teams in Formula 1 is not welcome for Schumacher Jr. Aston Martin has announced that Stoffel Vandoorne will be the team’s test and reserve driver for the 2023 season. This means that Nico Hulkenberg, who has filled this role until now, is now free to seek his fortune elsewhere.

And that elsewhere will most likely be “Haas”, as the specialists are predicting en masse.

The 35-year-old Hulkenberg has 184 starts in Formula 1, in which he has won a total of 521 points. In the current season, he drives for “Aston Martin” in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, and was otherwise a driver for “Williams”, “Force India”, “Sauber”, “Renault” and “Racing Point”.

Haas boss Gunther Steiner is expected to announce very soon who will drive alongside Kevin Magnussen next year. The cult boss had said that the American team would make this decision after the Mexican Grand Prix, which took place last weekend.
