Mick Schumacher, who is currently a reserve driver for Mercedes, has revealed that his future is currently up in the air, but he knows one thing for sure, he does not want to compete in Formula E because he loves petrol engines.
Due to the results he achieved in Formula 3 and then in Formula 2, as well as the legacy of his father Michael Schumacher, Mick’s debut in Formula 1 was highly anticipated, and after his first season he received more praise, but in his second year he made some mistakes and his team Haas expelled him. From there he joined Mercedes as a reserve.
His goal, of course, is to return, but this will most likely not happen in 2024, as there is only one place for rent at Williams, and according to the latest news, the team will keep the young American. So the next opportunity is 2025, and until then she can perform in another series.
Recently, the World Endurance Championship (WEC) has been discussed most often, and after testing the Alpine car, the team itself indicated that it does not rule out employing the young German. Regarding his future, Schumacher recently said that nothing has been decided yet, and he himself is open to all possibilities.
Except one. “Would I consider the Form-E option? I’ll be very honest, I’d say no. I like motorcycles, I like petrol, so not at all (I’d be interested in Formula E).” – he told the Italian portal tuttomotoriweb.
“Who knows what lies ahead… If I drive, maybe my opinion will change. But I love old cars, V8s, smells… and everything else! Are you interested in this?” – continued the young driver resolutely, which remains doubtful whether he would remain Mercedes’ reserve if he moved to another series.
In this regard, his boss, Toto Wolff, recently said that Schumacher would likely stay with them despite the fact that he is competing for a rival factory team in another series, if “this factory also agrees”.
