Schumacher must be allowed to be himself, says F1 boss

Schumacher must be allowed to be himself, says F1 boss

Mick Schumacher must be allowed to create his own path and be himself despite living with the title of Michael Schumacher’s son, says Liberty Media’s Chase Carey.

The 20-year-old has impressed in the junior Formula categories and is the current Formula 3 world champion, although he has struggled this season since making the progression up to F2.

Being the son of F1’s most successful driver in Schumacher will provide extra pressure and baggage for Mick, but Carey thinks it is important he be left to make his own mark on the sport.

“As Michael’s son, Mick has a special place but he also has to get the chance to be himself and reach his own goals,” Carey told Sport Bild.

“We want to give him a chance to pursue his dreams, but no market ever depends on a single driver.”

Carey was discussing the future stars of F1 when mentioning Schumacher, but has also name-dropped Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, George Russell, and Lando Norris as younger drivers who could potentially become the next Lewis Hamilton.

“We’ve seen Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen fighting for victory,” he said. “So there’s those two, Lando Norris, and also George Russell has a wonderful personality.

“Lewis is undoubtedly a great world champion, and he may even become the greatest of all time. But we also have some very interesting drivers.

“In part that’s because we have managed to integrate Formula 3 and Formula 2 with Formula 1 a lot better than before.”

Hamilton is currently the driver closest to matching or surpassing Schumacher’s seven world championships, as he currently sits on five titles.
