Mick Schumacher, happy for his performance against Verstappen and Hamilton

The bumpy start to the race last Sunday at the circuit of Hungaroring it opened the possibility for drivers and teams that are usually at the back of the grid to fight for positions that they do not usually access.

That was used to perfection by Williams, who had his two drivers, Nicholas Latifi and George Russell, in the points zone at the end of the grand prix, something Mick Schumacher also flirted with before finishing in 13th place.

But far from being frustrated at not taking his Haas to the points, this year’s F1 rookie appreciated having the opportunity to face drivers with whom he generally has to open up when they take a lap, being able to battle Verstappen and Hamilton later. that both were relegated to the bottom of the platoon.

In particular, Schumacher struggled with the Red Bull driver, whom he managed to contain for a long time as his car was severely damaged by the crash of the first corner that Valtteri Bottas started.

“I did not expect to be able to hold it in line for so long, but I am happy that I was able and that I had the opportunity to fight with the best,” he said. Schumacher.

Also read:

“I was fighting Max twice in the race and I was able to (increase) my experience in that case, feel the pressure and not break under pressure. So I think it was a really positive day for us.”

Schumacher’s good Sunday came after a difficult Saturday in which the German crashed his Haas hard in the third practice, which prevented him from taking part of the qualifying session.

“Of course, I think it gave everyone a little light at the end of the tunnel after a disappointing day (Saturday), I think it was a very, very positive day. We have learned a lot, we have a lot to learn, and we have a lot to do. look forward to the summer break and when I go back to Spa, “he said.

Gunther SteinerHaas team boss had said on Saturday that he was tired of his drivers’ accidents, but after the race he appreciated what Schumacher had done.

“That is what we want to see. There he showed what he is capable of and this is what he has to do. And he did it very well. It was actually the most enjoyable race we had this year for us on the pit wall.” Steiner said.
