Despite the fact that both Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher were announced at Haas last December as a two-year contract, this seems to require special confirmation. A few weeks ago, Gunther Steiner, captain of the Americans who lead the army, stated that Mazbein would stay with the team next year, and Schumacher’s fate could be settled in a short time.
Regarding the son of the seven-time world champion, he has been affected in recent weeks to change teams and then continue his career at Alfa Romeo in 2022, but it appears to be unfounded. “This year is more difficult at Ferrari’s academy, but the kids also need time to get up. Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto is the first season for Mick Schumacher to learn, without pressure, we are already negotiating with Haas to continue,” said Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto.
Binotto also talked about the future of another young Ferrari, Antonio Giovinazzi, in a statement to the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. While it has been suggested that Alfa Romeo might ditch both drivers, Ferrari is trying to talk about its Italian upbringing. “Giovinazzi will remain our reserve rider, he is our number one replacement after the permanent pilots. He is developing every year, so I hope you can stay with Alfa because you deserve it.”
He also spoke of his appreciation for Ferrari’s permanent duo, saying that the pairing of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz is the best in the current network, even though the Maranello team hasn’t had such a young squad since 1968. “They are both talented, fast and young, and at the same time a guarantee for the future.” , praised his pilots.
