For Mick Schumacher, the season cannot start soon enough and despite the fact that he was able to cover very few kilometers with his Haas F1 car in Bahrain, he says he is ready for it.
Mick Schumacher was disappointed on the first day of pre-season testing in Bahrain last weekend as he was only able to drive seven laps and over the three days combined, the counter stopped at 181 laps, thirty-two laps less than teammate Nikita Mazepin.
But that has not affected the enthusiasm of the young German, as he says he is ready for the start of the season.
“If it were up to me, I would be racing tomorrow,” said Schumacher in Bahrain. “In general, I think three days of testing is not much. But I have to say that I already feel comfortable. ”
“If it were up to me, I would prefer to ride every day. I would love to be able to drive so many miles and ride every day, because that is my passion, that is my love. ”
The young German also admits that the test session has only increased his desire to race.
“I have to say it feels even better to drive this car than I expected. Of course you drive a car, but this is really fun and it is something I will not get bored with so easily. ”
“The race weekend cannot come soon enough, which may make sense. I am really looking forward to this season. Like I said, I would prefer to ride every day. I could add another eight days and go straight into the race weekend. ”
Despite his enthusiasm, Mick Schumacher still has to be patient until March 26 before he can start for the first free practice session for the Bahrain GP, which will take place on Sunday, March 28 and the first race of the F1 2021 calendar with 23 races. is.
