Schumacher in F1 by 2021, says Hulkenberg

Schumacher in F1 by 2021, says Hulkenberg

Nico Hulkenberg expects Mick Schumacher to be lining up on the Formula 1 grid by 2021.

The son of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher is in his rookie Formula 2 campaign and won his first race of the year in the Hungary sprint race.

Having signed to Ferrari's Driver Academy at the start of the year, and made his testing debut for the Scuderia in April, the 20-year-old certainly seems on the route to F1.

Schumacher proved his racing credentials with a title win in last year's European F3 Championship.

Hulkenberg also credited his fellow Germans ability to handle the pressure that comes with his famous name and believes he will adapt to F1 easy enough.

"I'm sure that we'll see him in Formula 1 in two years at the latest," Hulkenberg told N-TV.

"Of course, you have to see the conditions under which he will grow. The expectations are extremely high, this is not an easy situation.

"As far as I can judge from a distance, he does it very well. He just clinched his first [F2] victory.

"Perhaps it has become a bit easier from the cars' point of view. We've got a lot of downforce, the cars aren't easy to drive either, but perhaps a bit self-explanatory and not quite as demanding as they were ten years ago."
