Schumacher ‘clearly’ ready for F1 debut

(GMM) Mick Schumacher says he is “clearly” ready for Formula 1.

It is widely believed that Haas is poised to announce that Michael Schumacher’s 21-year-old son will join the team and Formula 1 for 2021.

“I clearly feel ready for Formula 1,” Schumacher, the Formula 2 points leader, told t-online.

“In recent years I have always tried to develop myself as a driver, and I am very satisfied with my development,” the German explained.

“The desire to become a Formula 1 driver one day has always been deeply rooted within me. I have put everything second to that desire.”

Schumacher had been poised to make his Friday practice debut for Ferrari-powered Alfa Romeo at the Nurburgring, but the session was cancelled due to weather.

Now, it is rumored that the Ferrari junior driver might not get another chance to drive a Formula 1 car until the young driver test in Abu Dhabi.

“At the moment it’s pure speculation, so I just have to wait and see,” Schumacher said.
