"That would be too much responsibility with not enough experience so it is [a relief] knowing that we have got customer teams that are partners which we may count [on] to continue developing our drivers in F1. [It] is an important element."
Binotto has hinted at an increased involvement with Haas given the migration of staff from Italy to the American team, although ruled out any notion of creating a 'junior team' set-up.
The Italian indicated Schumacher's placement at Haas will strengthen the ties between the two teams.
"Mick Schumacher will be one of the drivers for Haas next year," he said. "For us, it is a great opportunity, showing the strength of the collaboration we have got. Mick is part of our FDA.
"As I am saying, the FDA programme is not just there to develop drivers for F1, but it is there to develop drivers that one day might drive a Ferrari car."
Schumacher is contracted to Haas for two-years with team principal Guenther Steiner stating on numerous occasions 2021 is a "transitional year" before the introduction of drastically changed aerodynamic regulations in 2022.
