Mick Schumacher admits he is not sure when he will make the step up from Formula 2 to Formula 1, whether it be for the 2020 season or after,
The German rookie driver won the F3 championship last season, but has struggled since progressing to F2. He did, however, win his first race in his new series at the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, which resulted in questions being asked about when he expects to be given a seat in F1.
For the moment, at least, he is none the wiser.
"I think only time can tell," Schumacher said about being recruited to a F1 seat.
"Obviously having the first victory in F2 is a great thing. I still need to work a lot on myself. Whether I go to F1 next year or in two years or three years, I don’t know.
