Mick Schumacher to race in Formula 1 with Haas in 2021

Mick Schumacher is expected to follow in his father’s footsteps in Formula 1. He started his racing career in go-kart racing, but used his mother’s maiden name to avoid attracting attention.

The Haas Formula 1 team has announced that Mick Schumacher – son of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, will race for it in the 2021 Formula 1 season. The announcement comes just after the team confirmed another rookie, Nikita Mazepin.

The 21 year old German is a Ferrari Driver Academy student as well as a Formula 2 driver. His performance in the Formula 2 season this year was one of the reasons for his acceptance into a Formula 1 team.

While Haas is not owned by Ferrari, it has agreements with Ferrari which make it as good as the Italian carmaker’s B-team.
