Mick Schumacher eventually got no points again in Canada. It was great after qualifying on Saturday: Schumacher started the third in sixth on Sunday. Best career for a 23 year old. In addition, a good template for the next milestone: the first world championship points in his career.
Schumacher came out on the 20th lap – Haas came out empty-handed despite his best qualification
But nothing came back: At lap 20, Schumacher surprisingly had to push his car into the run-off zone. Part of the motor generating units (i.e. the engine) failed and could not continue racing. “We had to park the car, otherwise more would have been broken,” the German explained at the end of the race.

Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher’s son was particularly annoyed when he said, “Because we had the speed to score points.” In fact, Schumacher was seventh when he was suddenly ejected. “I think it would have been today,” he later said, annoyed at the missed opportunity.
The same is true of Schumacher’s teammate Magnussen. Despite fielding next to Schumacher, he was unable to score any points. Already on the first lap it collided between him and Louis Hamilton. Racing organizers gave Magnuson a bit of a stop penalty because part of his car was loose and could endanger other drivers. Eventually, Dane’s last driver crossed the finish line.
Shoemaker’s Biggest Accident Costs: Haas boss Steiner had enough
This time though Schumacher made no driving mistakes, he never got a chance to shine again. Precisely because of his accidents and the numerous and costly damage to the car, he was under pressure for some time.
The Dutch F1 website “F1 maximaal” calculated last year that in 2021 no other driver would have caused as much accident damage as he did. Accordingly, the Schumacher accidents cost the Haas team about 4,212,500 euros last year.

As “tz” It has now been reported that Haas captain Gunder Steiner has had enough since the beginning of July. Accordingly, Azerbaijan wanted to remove the German pilot from the Grand Prix driving list. However, Ferrari vetoed it.
Mick Schumacher before the change, the successor to Sebastian Vettel?
“Scuderia” is allowed to name one of the two Haas drivers each year and continues to insist on the young confident Mick Schumacher. However, a 23-year-old at Ferrari does not currently have a free car.
The Italians may force Haas Schumacher in the coming year. After all, Steiner recently publicly stated that the alleged dispute between himself and his pilot was “exacerbated” from the outside. “We’re laughing about it now,” he explained “Car Motor and Sport”.

In view of the recent increase in tough vehicle and technical issues, Mick Schumacher also understands a change. According to media reports, he is an option for Aston Martin. So the British want to expand the German market. If the cut goes away later this year, Schumacher could inherit him. Ideally, he would have already earned his first championship points.
No race is as different as Formula 1: almost all drivers are white, rich and male. So far, not a single woman has entered this elite circle. In more than 70 years of racing history, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is the only black F1 driver to date. And at least one gay man has never officially driven Formula 1.
