Mick Schumacher 'average' and not next F1 star, says expert
Two Formula 1 experts are not so sure that Mick Schumacher will be the next sensation to hit the pinnacle of motorsport. The 20-year-old son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher, watched on by mother Corinna in Bahrain, made his F1 test debut for Ferrari on Tuesday.
"They're not bad, are they?" said Mick's manager Nicolas Todt, referring also to Bahrain pole sitter Charles Leclerc, who almost won last Sunday.
However, former F1 driver Jan Lammers thinks Schumacher has so far shown that he lacks the meteoric punch with which drivers like Leclerc and Max Verstappen rose to the grid.
