Vettel on Mick Schumacher: He is in a difficult situation…

Former four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel fears that his compatriot and good friend Mick Schumacher will be left without a driver’s seat in the 2024 season as well, as there are only very few seats currently available.

The former Formula 2 champion was forced to exit the King’s category after two seasons, after Haas decided to dismiss him after the 2022 season, which brought more crashes than expected, and replace him with routine Nico Hulkenberg. Mercedes threw a lifebelt at Schumacher. In 2023, he will serve as the Stars’ number three contender, but of course his goal is to return next year.

However, that seems very difficult to implement at the moment, something he himself admitted, as well as Toto Wolff, who runs the Mercedes team, after seeing a few free driver seats available for the 2024 season. Williams could be the only option for the young German. .

However, they have no shortage of suitors, and it has yet to be decided whether the team will fire rookie Logan Sargeant. So it may happen that Schumacher will miss the 2023 season as well. His German compatriot and “mentor” (he helped his career several times with important advice) Sebastian Vettel also fears this, and would also be happy to have Schumacher back because of his country.

“The situation is difficult at the moment” – the four-time world champion told Sky Sports. “There may still be only one seat for the driver, and at the moment it is not that easy, in fact it is difficult to get there and slide in there.” He added, perhaps in reference to Williams.

“I think it’s very important that things continue at a certain pace next year to continue working on the second chance. From a German point of view, this is essential, as he is not only our greatest young talent, he is probably the only one we have at the moment.“, praised his compatriot.

Recently, it has also been suggested that Schumacher could spend 2024 in another series in order to get his race routine together in 2023, while he continues to prepare (most likely with the support of Mercedes) for a return to the premier category. 2025 may be a better opportunity for this, as many seats will be available, but at the same time it may also be the last for the German.
