Mercedes name Mick Schumacher as reserve driver to Lewis Hamilton and George Russell for 2023

Schumacher’s Mercedes role will see him work in the team’s simulator and be ready to stand in should Lewis Hamilton or George Russell be unable to race. We’re delighted to have him join,” Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said. Schumacher, who will attend all grands prix during the 2023 season, said he was “thrilled” to take on his new role. Prior to Mercedes’ announcement, Ferrari put out a statement saying they had cut all links with Schumacher, who had been a member of their driver academy since 2019. Schumacher raced for Haas for two seasons, with a best result of sixth place at the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix.
