Schumacher focuses on Haas amid Alfa Romeo speculation

Mick Schumacher has insisted his focus remains on his rookie F1 season with Haas amid speculation over a potential move to Alfa Romeo for 2022.

The relationship between Schumacher and team-mate Nikita Mazepin appears to be growing more fractious in recent weeks with numerous on-track near-misses at Monaco, Azerbaijan, France and Austria.

When announcing the signing of Schumacher in late 2020, Haas stated the driver had joined on a "multi-year agreement" but it is possible Ferrari could decide to move its academy prospect elsewhere if it feels a move would better serve his development.

Former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has suggested the move from Haas to Alfa Romeo would happen, although Fred Vasseur dismissed this claim.

Faced with this speculation, Schumacher said: “My focus is really on here [Haas].

"Obviously, what is happening next year is something we will have to talk about in maybe some weeks time, but as I said, here and now, things are for me and the team right now and right here.”

Is Schumacher move pure speculation?

A large part of a driver's performance comes from their comfort in and around a team.

Whilst it may appear from the outside that Schumacher and Mazepin are at loggerheads, the German commented he is happy with the team and his performances so far this season.

He added: "Let's say I am relatively happy.

"Performance-wise, it is tough but nonetheless, we have managed to get our way, we work really well together and I am really enjoying my time here, so much that it is easy for me to come early to work and leave work late because it is so enjoyable and I think it really reflects in our performance.

"The hard work will pay off at some point."
