Schumacher couldn’t perform like Hulkenberg says Stuck

German racing legend Hans-Joachim Stuck isn’t sure Mick Schumacher would have been able to keep up with countryman Nico Hulkenberg in 2023. Hulkenberg, 35, was out of Formula 1 for three full years until he was signed by Haas to replace struggling 24-year-old German Schumacher this season. “I can’t have a driver who I’m not sure if he knows how to safely drive the car at a slow speed,” said team boss Gunther Steiner in a reported excerpt from his new book. He is referring to Schumacher’s crash at Suzuka last year on a non-flying lap. Former F1 driver Stuck, 72, is a big supporter of Schumacher’s but he admits: “I don’t know whether Mick could also be performing like Nico. He also has racing experience that Schumacher needs to gather first.”.
