Mick Schumacher is “so close” to roll in Suzuka Circuit for the first time in his F1 career

Mick Schumacher is looking to make the most of his F1 debut

Mick Schumacher is about to witness the very first practice session of his F1 career in just four days. While driving until now in the F2 championship, the German will now have his first taste of the top grid racing with Team Haas.

Despite all the excitement and adrenaline rush around his F1 debut, Schumacher is keeping things cool around him. Besides, when asked about the circuit he would love to drive on, the Team Haas driver mentioned ‘Suzuka’ on top of his list.

I am really happy that my first season in Formula 1 is so close to the start. As for the circuits that I would like to know, I would say Suzuka, where I haven’t raced yet. And then I’m definitely looking forward to returning to Spa, one of the most iconic tracks in history.

But I would say there are many other tracks that I love, for example, Monza. I am happy to arrive on all these tracks behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car and feel the power, the speed of the car“, said Schumacher.

Mick will be making his F1 debut after nine years of his father’s retirement. So, the moment is certainly going to be very special for this 22-year-old driver. Still, the driver is pretty excited about getting this big opportunity so early in his career.

I am very excited for the first race in Bahrain. Thinking about it, it’s been 30 years since my father started his first Formula 1 race, and now I’m about to start mine. The fact that I am racing in F1 is incredible.

I’m so happy to finally get there, to race with all these champions, to show my potential by working with a great team. I will learn and improve, both as a driver and as a man “, the 22-year-old declares to the German media “.

The Bahrain Grand Prix is just around the corner, and Mick would undoubtedly like to make the most of the available time. Nonetheless, there is a lot to talk and debate about his journey so far in the motorsport world.

Mick Schumacher and his journey down the road to F1

There is more to Mick Schumacher’s racing skills than just his last name. While kick-starting his career in karting at an early age (nine), he certainly covered some big distance over the past few years.

Discussing his stint in Karting, he went trophyless for over six years during the early stages of his career. After facing all the disappointment initially, Mick finally claimed a top-three finish during the German Junior Kart Championship twice. Besides, he went on to secure a P2 in the European and World Championships in 2014.

Later in the year, he test drove a Jenzer Motorsport Formula 4 car. Given his exemplary skills and talent on display, he secured a full-time driving chance in the ADAC F4 series for the 2015 season with Van Amersfoort Racing.

The German then grabbed his first victory, followed by two more podium finishes. His success on the track then landed him with a contract to drive with Prema for the 2016 season. Eventually, this came as the much-required platform for his motorsport career.

Being the son of probably the best driver in F1’s history, there will be a lot to prove for Mick in the 2021 season. Still, given his accomplishments in the F2 championship last year, the road ahead seems better and brighter for this young German sensation.
