Mick Schumacher: Reserve driver for Mercedes!

Mick Schumacher surprised Formula 1 fans. He confirmed that he is officially the reserve driver of Mercedes. After his adventure in the Haas team ended, Schumacher found a new job. He could not hide his happiness at the new challenge in his career.

Schumacher hopes that he can help in a certain way, and he is grateful to everyone who had a part in this story. “I am thrilled to be part of the Mercedes team as their reserve driver for 2023, and I am committed to give it my all to contribute to their performance in this very competitive and professional environment,” said Schumacher for motorsport.com.

“I take this as a new start, and I am just excited and grateful to Toto and everybody involved for putting their trust in me. F1 is such a fascinating world, and you never stop learning, so I look forward to absorbing more knowledge and putting in all my efforts for the benefit of the Mercedes team”.

Toto Wolff and Schumacher

Toto Wolff recognized certain qualities in Schumacher. It is clear to everyone that he is a great talent. They know that Schumacher
can help them. It must be admitted that Mick has not had any great moments in his career so far, which is to be expected considering the teams he played for.

We will see if he will have a chance to show everything he knows in Mercedes “Mick is a talented young driver and we’re delighted to have him join the Team. He is a hard worker, has a calm and methodical approach and is still hungry to learn and improve as a driver.

These are all important qualities, and we’re excited for him to help us develop the W14. We also know that with two years of experience racing in Formula 1 under his belt, he will be ready to step into the car at short notice to replace either Lewis or George, should that need arise”.
