Mick Schumacher smells like champagne ... and Formula 1

Second win of the year for him and the lead extended with three races remaining in the F2 season. His move to Alfa Romeo, feasible by 2021.


"We have consistency on all circuits and this is how titles are won," says Mick Schumacher, on the track, after winning the main Formula 2 race in Sochi. The German started third, got rid of Daruvala with a great start and passed Tsunoda after the pit stops to win without suffering. It is his second victory in the category this season, he already swept at Monza (he had previously won Sunday's race in Hungary 2019, but with an inverted grid) and consolidates his leadership at the top of the general classification with 18 points over Ilott and 41 about Lundgaard and the Japanese. Russia's Shwartzman picks up three consecutive zeros.

"It's nice to have won here, we had a rhythm all weekend and I'm happy for the fans too. We made good choices when setting up the car and compromising certain things," said the Kaiser's 21-year-old son every day. closer to Formula 1. He is a Ferrari Academy driver and if this year he wins Formula 2, all roads will lead him to the Gran Circo. They can make room for him at Alfa Romeo, perhaps alongside Kimi Raikkonen. The superlicense would not be a problem, in fact in 2018 he already had the necessary points after winning the FIA F3, also with the Prema team. He has already driven the Ferrari in several tests, has done more kilometers at Fiorano than many can imagine and will foreseeably do it again this year in Abu Dhabi, when the season ends.

On his future in Formula 1, he admits that he is not concerned yet: "I am focused, one hundred percent, on the F2 season and it is not over yet. I am worried about Sunday's race." Those who take care of their career always opt for the most prudent steps, Sabine Kehm, representative of his father, is also the one who accompanies Mick on the circuits. There are three races left, one in Sochi and two in Bahrain. But if he is proclaimed champion, his leap to the top category of motorsport will be inevitable.
