Schumacher troubles

Schumacher voiced frustration at Haas’ lack of support in his first two Formula 1 season


Haas let go of Schumacher due to his challenging 2022 season with multiple crashes, and they replaced him with Nico Hulkenberg.

 “[You cannot] assume a driver will perform at his best if you don’t support him in the right way.

Having joined the Silver Arrows under the leadership of Toto Wolff, Schumacher has experienced a contrasting environment.


Observing the operations of this more successful team, Schumacher has been vocal in criticizing Haas for their treatment of him.

“I can see now how it should be. My two years [with Haas] didn’t show me that,”

Mercedes, which enjoyed dominance in the sport until recently, boasts two top-tier drivers Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.


Schumacher, the Formula 2 champion of 2020, remains optimistic about securing a seat with a different team in the upcoming season.


Currently, Williams Racing appears as the sole viable choice for Schumacher, pending their decision to replace Logan Sergeant, who hasn’t scored points.

Nonetheless, the team has shown confidence in their current driver.

Wolff, the head of Mercedes, implied that Schumacher’s treatment at Haas would have been different had his iconic father, Michael, been a presence in the F1 paddock.

“if Michael had accompanied his son during the two Haas years, Steiner would not have dared to treat Mick like that!”
