Michael Schumacher’s ‘presence’ would have made F1 team Haas treat his son Mick differently, says his brother Ralf, after they axed the 24-year-old amid a ‘bullying’ storm and after repeated costly crashes

Ralf Schumacher believes if his brother Michael had been present during Mick’s two seasons with Haas, then their team principal Guenther Steiner ‘would have behaved differently’. Steiner was caught in the most recent season of Netflix’s Drive to Survive calling Mick a ‘dead man walking’ following a crash at the Monaco Grand Prix – among other comments criticising his driving during the 2022 season. I think that as a seasoned man you don’t treat a young person like that. But Mick is of course family and you have to understand me: when you treat my family like that, I don’t like it, as Ralf Schumacher.’. As previously reported, Steiner has denied bullying Mick, who was replaced by the more experienced Nico Hulkenberg for the 2023 season.
