Formula 1: Haas makes it official! It’s doubly bitter for Mick Schumacher
The French GP was a major disappointment for Mick Schumacher and the next setback for the German hopeful in the formula 1 should follow.
Mick Schumacher must in the formula 1 cope with bitter news – and he is responsible for that himself.
Formula 1: Bitter news for Mick Schumacher
Unlike other teams in Formula 1, Haas has not yet made a major update to their car. Haas boss Günther Steiner officially announced this in France at the next race in Hungary.
The upgrade is coming – but with one restriction: “There will only be one car with the upgrade and we will hardly have any spare parts even for this one car,” says Steiner. Since Kevin Magnussen is ahead of Mick Schumacher in the World Cup, he receives the package.
Formula 1: Accidents are to blame
According to Steiner, one can be happy that an upgrade is coming at all: “The parts arrived late. We had a lot of accidents this year, so we used up all our materials on spare parts. We then postponed it from France because the guys couldn’t have done it anymore. The plan was then Spa, but they did everything they could to get at least one package ready for Budapest so we could analyze it during the summer break.”
Heavy accident in Saudi Arabia, car cut in half in Monaco – Mick Schumacher contributed with his crashes himself to the fact that he had to do without an upgrade in Hungary and was only allowed to do it after the summer break in Spa (Belgium).

“That’s ok for me,” he said after the race in France and continued: “I think it should still be good because our car is running. Budapest is a track where it should actually work for us. Even without a new package, it can be good.” The new upgrade has to work anyway first.

The next setback is already waiting for Mick Schumacher after the summer break. The 23-year-old will probably have to change his engine for the race in Spa (Belgium). There is an upgrade from Ferrari. However, Schumacher will receive an engine penalty for this. Originally this was supposed to happen in Hungary, but no engine was available for Schumi.
