Haas driver Mick Schumacher has ruled out a move to Alfa Romeo.
Schumacher is doing well given the car at his disposal. However, his future at Haas is uncertain. This is due to his high regard among those above him. It could also be due to his recent tensions with team boss Guenther Steiner. He has been linked with a move away from Haas recently. However, the young driver has ruled out a move to Alfa Romeo.
As reported by Motorsport-total, Schumacher insisted that his first preference is Haas, and that he has a lot to learn in his first season.
“Not at the moment, no (on his move away from Haas),” Schumacher said.
“We have to see how that develops. But I believe that we are in the final steps now and hopefully have everything under the roof by the end of the season.
“We’re basically trying to hybridize the seat we made at Silverstone and the one we have now. So a mixture of both. The one seat that we made at Silverstone doesn’t fit into the car like that.
“There are a few points that just don’t work. Although it actually feels very comfortable and straight,” he said.
Mick Schumacher is the son of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher. It has been 30 years since his illustrious father’s debut, and Mick will wear a dedicated helmet at Spa to celebrate the occasion.
“I actually knew the moment that I signed (for Haas) that it will be 30 years (in 2021). But it’s still fun that it’s 30 years exactly. On the day at Spa, it’s going to be great and emotional racing,” Schumacher said.
And it’s actually crazy to think that we started at exactly the same age that I am now (22). Obviously, it’s a different time. It’s a different time in this world, but still, the nostalgia is there and I’m very happy about it” he concluded.
