The ‘Schumacher’ documentary is available on Netflix.

 

 

Mick Schumacher finished his first season in Formula 1 with zero points. His only consolation is that he has beaten his Haasteammate Nikita Mazepin, who also failed to score a point all year.

 

 

The Haas car was the slowest and most unstable from the very first race at Bahrain and didn’t improve at any point.

 

Schumacher‘s 12th-placed finish in Hungary was the best the team managed and that was largely down to a number of retirements in front of him.

 

 

He also cost his team an awful lot of money in terms of repairs, with big crashes in Monaco, France and Saudi Arabia.

 

 

Mick is a special case because his father is none other than Michael Schumacher.

 

 

The seven-time F1 world champion is a mirror to look into and someone who is hateful to compare himself to. Even so, the son of the Kaiser dares to draw a parallel.

 

 

“I have maximum respect for what my father achieved, all his hard work to achieve his victories and titles. Nothing was provided for him. The energy and strength he taught, his concentration, always giving 100% at work. It impresses me. I think I have something of that too,” he said in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine.

 

 

“I do not usually compare myself with others. I prefer to go on my own. But I do look for comparisons with my father.”

The 22-year-old also revealed how he found it tough to watch the Netflix documentary about his father who has been suffering with severe injuries since a skiing accident in December 2013.

 

“They focused on showing the human side of my father, in addition to his successes,” Mick said, “I think it is very good. But, at the same time, it is very hard for me to see it. That shows how much feeling there is in this film and how many emotions it evokes.”

 

 

Mick will be a reserve driver at Ferrari, where his father won five world titles between 2000 and 2004, in 2022 alongside his commitments with Haas as a full-time driver where he will hope to score his first points in the pinnacle of motorsport.
