Schumacher wants strong teammate for nephew Mick

Ralf Schumacher thinks it’s unlikely one popular former Formula 1 racer will be called up to replace axed Haas driver Nikita Mazepin in 2022. Schumacher, though – the uncle of confirmed 2022 Haas driver Mick – plays down 34-year-old Hulkenberg’s chances. “Haas says they have several candidates, but it seems to me that some of them are not entirely relevant. Haas reserve Pietro Fittipaldi will replace Russian Mazepin in the Bahrain test, but the 25-year-old Brazilian’s chances of securing the race seat is “unlikely” according to Schumacher. Formula 2 driver Louis Deletraz has denied he is in talks with Haas, while Kevin Magnussen is said to be firmly under contract to Peugeot’s Le Mans team. Schumacher, meanwhile, admits he feels sorry for Mazepin.
