Mick Schumacher is proud to follow in his father’s footsteps as he prepares to make F1 debut in Bahrain – as new Haas star hails ‘amazing feeling’ of bringing famous name back to the grid nine years after dad Michael’s retirement

Formula One’s newest superstar Mick Schumacher has spoken of his pride at bringing the sport’s most famous name back to the grid, nine years on from his father’s retirement. This weekend will see the 21-year-old compete in his first F1 race in Bahrain – at the same age his father made his debut – and Schumacher Jnr was quick to speak about his pride ahead of his debut. Schumacher was behind the wheel for pre-season testing at the same circuit earlier this month, but the real hard work starts this weekend with the first race of the 2021 season. ‘It’s an amazing feeling being with the team and knowing this is it and I’m getting close to my first race in F1,’ Schumacher continued. Schumacher made an emotional decision at the start of the season to continue with his father’s legacy, opting for ‘MSC’ on the timing screens rather than the expected ‘SCH’.
