“Of course we talk to each other and exchange ideas. I think it's good that he's back in a racing car and able to race,” Vettel said. “I think the WEC is on a very good path, a lot of manufacturers are coming in and the level is rising.
“A lot of talented drivers are joining and it will definitely be good for him [Mick Schumacher]. On the other hand, he still stays connected to Formula 1 to continue learning. This is a great opportunity for him.”
Alongside his new role with Alpine, Schumacher will remain as Mercedes reserve driver, supporting the team as they look to return to championship glory.
