Renewing Schumacher is just a matter of details

The head of the North American Formula 1 team, Guenther Steiner, expects Mick Schumacher to sign a new contract soon for 2022, stating that only details are lacking.

The Ferrari junior, who won the title of Formula 2 from the FIA ​​in 2020, he made his F1 debut in 2021 with Haas, under difficult circumstances.

The German has so far failed to score points with an uncompetitive car, only making it from Q1 to Q2 once, at the French Grand Prix.

His best result, on the other hand, was a 13th position in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in June.

Despite suffering with an uncompetitive car, Mick Schumacher has been impressing his team without making much noise and comfortably beating his teammate Nikita Mazepin.

Haas is happy that both drivers continue in 2022. Mazepin is already registered, and Steiner confirmed that “everything is signed, everything is fine”.

Talks are also taking place with Schumacher and his parent team Ferrari, but because a third party is also involved, progress is not being made as fast.

“There are some things that need to be resolved. It is a three-way contract, obviously, because he has one with Ferrari,” Steiner commented at the British Grand Prix.

“There are some crosses for the ‘T’ and some dots for the ‘I’, and we will get to it. But Mick is not … he is not trying to say that it is not signed, but there are agreements in place.”

“But because the contract is three-way, it is always more difficult than when it is direct face-to-face contact.”

Schumacher said he was focused on his next races rather than his long-term future, but added that he would like to terminate his contract during the summer break after next week’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

“Obviously right now I’m really focused on the here, now, in the race,” said the young man at Silverstone.

“You know, summer break is coming soon and that’s really when I’ll be fully focused on it.”
