Formula 1: last chance for a cockpit? HE has to cope with a bitter setback
On his way to the formula 1 a David Schumacher now has to cope with a severe setback.
Because instead of Formula 2, Ralf Schumacher’s son has to get into the DTM via the formula 1 balancing An uncertain project. It could be his last chance.
Formula 1: David Schumacher has to reorient himself
Formula 2 is often used as a stepping stone to the premier class. But the way to F1 is getting more and more expensive. If you want to drive in Formula 2, you have to have up to 2.5 million euros ready for the starting place alone. “Formula racing is no longer financially viable, you can hardly find sponsors. In my opinion, it has become practically impossible,” said David Schumacher to BamS.
Even for the nephew of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, a start is apparently too expensive. The 20-year-old is currently driving in the DTM. Here he competes for Mercedes. At the season debut in Portugal, Schumacher finished 21st out of 29.
House of Commons too expensive – DTM is the last resort
“Now the first race is over,” said the pilot after the race. Overall he is quite satisfied. “I now have to get used to the car even more, try to learn even more, then the performance will come naturally,” the young driver continued.

With the name Schumacher comes a certain level of expectation. David Schumacher hasn’t felt this yet: “I’ve gotten used to it. I’ve never really felt pressure from outside, I always do it myself.” This could also be justified. With the retirement of Formula 2, the DTM could be the last chance for the big leap into Formula 1.
