F1 team confirm Schumacher as 'family' along with rival star

Mick Schumacher has been welcomed with open arms to his new team, having recently started a new role.

The young German has been confirmed as a driver for Alpine's endurance team in the World Endurance Championship (WEC), meaning a return to full-time racing after spending 2023 as Mercedes' test and reserve driver.

While Schumacher will retain his role with Mercedes alongside working with Alpine, the German isn't likely to be as present around the Formula 1 paddock as he was in 2023.

The 24-year-old will be back in full-time racing for the first time since 2022, when he was dropped by Haas after some costly mistakes and inconsistent performances throughout his debut two years in F1.
