Mick Schumacher says F1 debut season has been ‘torture’ having had to drive ‘at the back with no real competition’

The son of legendary world champion Michael Schumacher has been unable to make an impression with the Haas team struggling at the back of the grid. Schumacher told Channel 4: “I don’t really realise what I’m doing when I’m in the car, let’s say facial expressions wise or feelings wise, I just love driving so I enjoy what I’m doing. Schumacher is the reigning Formula 2 champion and made the step up to F1 as a rookie with Haas. In his debut, Schumacher spun off the track but still managed to finish 16th at the Bahrain season opener. But this was still better than his dad, the seven-time world champion, after the German was forced to retire in his first race 30 years ago. Mick, 22, said: “I think in general you have to say that you can’t make everybody happy, and I know my worth, I know what I have accomplished to be here. Schumacher also finished 16th in the second race last weekend at Imola.
