Franz Tost wanted to sign Mick Schumacher says Ralf

Departing Alpha Tauri boss Franz Tost would have preferred to sign Mick Schumacher for the 2023 season, according to the German driver’s uncle Ralf. Schumacher is historically very close to Austrian Tost, the team boss at Alpha Tauri who will be replaced by two-man team Laurent Mekies and Peter Bayer for 2024. In the 90s, Tost worked for Willi Weber – Schumacher’s then manager – who asked Tost to accompany Ralf to race in Japan prior to his F1 debut. Schumacher now reveals that Tost, 67, actually wanted to sign Ralf’s nephew Mick for the 2023 season after the 24-year-old lost his Haas seat after two years on the grid. “Marko seems to have a problem with the Schumacher name or personally with Mick,” Ralf continued.
