Schumacher aims for return to F1

A few days before the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, German Mick Schumacher (Alpine) spoke in particular about his future and his ambitions with the French brand.

After spending two seasons in Formula 1 with Haas (in 2021 and 2022), Mick Schumacher makes no secret of clearly wanting to make his return to this Championship. But, without a seat since, the young German had to resolve to become a reserve driver at Mercedes in 2023. To complete this, Michael’s son also joined Alpine in endurance a few months ago. A few days before the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans (June 15 and 16), the 25-year-old driver is preparing to take a new step in his career by competing in this legendary race for the first time.

Before that, the latter took stock of his situation. “
I’m working to get back into F1, that’s my goal. This is the goal of every pilot. But if that doesn’t happen, I can definitely see myself continuing in this Championship (in the WEC). He has great potential,” the German admitted in particular about his future.

“It’s THE race of the year. (…) It would be great (to win). A French brand winning at Le Mans in its first season in Hypercar would be an extraordinary story. This is obviously our objective, we must always aim for victory. But there are many obstacles to overcome to achieve this, you will have to be in the right place at the right time, make the right decisions. I hope that will be the case. My ambition above all is to do my job as best as I can. I’m not aiming for a specific position, I already want to see the checkered flag, and to be competitive, of course, Schumacher subsequently declared, during an interview with L’Equipe.
So many things can happen, it’s very difficult to predict where we might end up. » After Nico Hülkenberg and Fernando Alonso in recent years, the German dreams of shining in Sarthe.
