Formula 1: drama about Schumacher – setback for contract hopes

The Formula 1 spectators were amazed. In qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix, Mick Schumacher suddenly appeared in sixth place. With an amazing lap he had taken a big step towards Q2 – one thought.

However, the shock followed a short time later: Schumacher’s time was canceled by the race management. But it got worse. Q1 ended in drama for Schumacher. What does that mean for his future in Formula 1?

Formula 1: track limits! round deleted

The much-discussed track limits were fatal to the Haas driver. Schumacher took turn 2 too directly and rumbled over the curbs with all four tires. Because he left the track, the stewards canceled his time. Even the fastest second sector didn’t bring him anything.

And it got even worse. Afterwards, the German driver hope did not manage to match the time again. When the time for the first section ran out, Schumacher was in 15th place. Then came Sebastian Vettel, who drove exactly (!) the same time as Schumi Jr. Guanyu Zhou was the last driver to turn onto the home straight – and pushed the two Germans aside.

Already ran the race?

Means: Schumacher will start from 16th place on Sunday. Unfortunately, overtaking in Mexico is considered to be extremely difficult. If the race goes normally, the chances of scoring points should already be gone.

It is precisely the repeatedly requested points that Haas Schumacher has been holding out for weeks. As the last team, the US racing team still has one seat free. The former Formula 2 champion has not yet received a new contract. What does Günther Steiner say about the qualifying performance in Mexico?
