Seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher brought a dowry prepared by Mercedes to Jordan in the wake of the criminal case of Bertrand Gachot in August 1991, and from the same team as a substitute at the 11th round Belgian Grand Prix. He made his F1 debut.
And although it’s hard to believe that 30 years have passed, Mick Schumacher will make his F1 debut in the footsteps of his father at the F1 Bahrain Grand Prix on March 28th this year.
“Of course, being one of the 120 F120 drivers is very special,” said Mick Schumacher.
“I’ve dreamed of this for about 15 years since I was a kid, and now it’s happening. It’s emotional and very nice.”
“My dad actually did his first race in F1 30 years ago, which makes his F1 debut more emotional and even nicer.”
In the 1991 F1 Belgian Grand Prix, the first race of Michael Schumacher’s 306 Grand Prix appearance, he finished 7th in the qualifying in Jordan, but retired on the first lap in the final.
Unlike his father, Mick Schumacher did not participate in the race from the middle of the season, but made his debut on the weekend with Haas F1 in the practice session of the F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2020, and also participated in the post-season test at the end of the year. It will make its debut after a pre-season test starting on March 12.

“It wasn’t just the driving time. That was the advantage of spending the weekend with the team. I personally got the first contact with the team by adjusting my seat early in Bahrain. This is great. That was. “
“I received a warm welcome. Whenever a new driver joins the team, it always feels good. It was a bit difficult to move during the winter due to restrictions. I spend time with my team As a driver I love, it was hard and I didn’t feel it was right, but thankfully I was able to get to England and adjust my seat. “
“I was still holding an online meeting. Given the situation we are facing, it’s a good alternative. I have a checklist and I’ve passed all the points I need. I really feel 100%. I’m ready. “
