Mick Schumacher refutes question over legendary F1 father as Haas driver provides insight

It follows a difficult debut campaign for the second generation driver, with a 12th placed finish in Hungary representing his best display. And in the second event of the 2022 season, he hit the headlines for the wrong reasons after a damaging crash in qualifying, which forced him to withdraw from the race in Jeddah.

Inevitably, much furore surrounds Schumacher’s displays given father Michael is considered one of the all-time greats of the sport. His record of seven world titles has only been matched by Lewis Hamilton, and his total of 91 F1 wins has only been bettered by the British driver.

But Schumacher Jr, 23, has denied that he feels any extra pressure in his quest to continue the family legacy, with his uncle Ralf also a veteran of 180 F1 races, winning six times. In fact, he views the comparisons to his father as a positive factor.
