Mick Schumacher “Not on our list” says Dr Helmut Marko
Last week, there was a rumour going around the paddock about Mick Schumacher joining the sport with apparent talks with the Toro Rosso team however, Dr Helmut Marko has quickly diffused the situation saying, Mick Schumacher is “not on our list” when questioned by the media.
For those who don’t know, Mick Schumacher is the son of the seven-time World Champion, Michael Schumacher – you may have seen him presenting Kimi Raikkonen with the fastest pole position award back in Monza – see the picture below.
Racing himself, Mick Schumacher has been working his way through the Formula 3 European Championship and with victories under his belt, he’s now just points behind the Red Bull backed leader, Dan Ticktum.
Dr Helmut Marko: “No, he is not on our list and we have no contact with him. We have zero contact with him. He is not on the shortlist.”
Despite the words from Dr Helmut Marko, Mick Schumacher is already popular within Formula 1 – fans alike are rooting for the racer but he also has respect from other drivers too, along with key members in the sport who are all suggesting that he will be racing in F1 at some point.
