    Mick Schumacher, why isnít he in Formula One yet?

    Hey everyone, a serious question here which has been puzzling me.

    Now I know Mick is only 19, but think of the drivers weíve had in the sport already at such a young age? What Iím curious about though, is why not team has snapped him up in an academy? I mean heís the son of the greatest Formula One driver?! Is there something we donít see? Is he not THAT good?

    Just curious as to what people think about this!

    Let Mick race at his own pace. Just his last name alone is pressure enough and everyone wants him in F1 like he's going to be the second coming......please. Let him earn his spot on merit alone.

    That being said, I'm not expecting any "miracles" from Mick let alone comparing him to his father.

    Mick is 19, Max is 20. He needs a F1 seat. It doesn't have to be Merc, a few seasons in F1 is what's important.

    Mick Schumacher, why isn’t he in Formula One yet?
    He has not won one series he has competed in so maybe he is not F1 material yet?

    I didn't know that. So you are right, he's not ready yet.

    Come to think of it RG has several series wins during his career and his track record in F1 is not that stellar. So perhaps that's not as important as I first thought.

    I'd love him to race for Ferrari one day but no, not yet. The pressure would be too great.
    Let him get another couple of years of experience of racing at least or perhaps look at putting in the Sauber or Haas in a couple of years to get F1 experience.

    It's clear to me Mick is on his own journey; taking it at his pace. I wish him every success in motorsport though I don't see racing in F1 being an automatic assumption for him.

    I think he wants to start with flying colors.

    I might think he needs sometime to grab F1 momentum.

    I'm assuming he needs to build a stance "Like Father Like Son".

    I actually admire his courage to follow his father's footsteps. Not so sure Michael would like his son to take a racing career though. It must be damn hard having a 7 time WC as a father and not being able to get any advice or backing seeing how Michael has ended up. Each victory he gets he just cannot really get the congrats from his dad under the podium or having his presence and support there I just hope he will not end up being used as a cash cow in some team just because of the family legacy he holds.

    I have to believe Merc feels the same way. His father retiring F1 with the German team has to be on his mind.

    He's on pole for races 2 and 3 as well. He's leading the championship and is on a roll.

    Merc has to be on the case also. Michael retired from the German team. Mick has choices.
