Toto Wolff insists Mick Schumacher ‘deserves’ a place in F1 after losing his seat at Haas to Niko Hulkenberg… as Mercedes chief confirms they could be ready to offer the son of legendary driver Michael a reserve role

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has confirmed his interest in offering Mick Schumacher a reserve role for next season, with the son of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael now a free agent after leaving Haas. Wolff has claimed Schumacher ‘fits’ at Mercedes, referencing his family’s relationship with the team, but admitted they were not close to an agreement at this stage. ‘Mick is someone that has always been close to our heart because of Michael or the whole Schumacher family,’ Wolff said, as per Sky Sports. Schumacher won two championships with Benneton and a further five at Ferrari before retiring from the sport in 2006, but returned when Mercedes made their comeback by taking over reigning champions Brawn GP. Schumacher, made his debut with Haas last season after winning the 2020 Formula Two title. Schumacher finished the season in 16th place in the standings with 12 points. Schumacher had been contracted to Ferrari as part of the Italian outfit’s driver academy.
