Mick Schumacher’s future with Haas is still unclear, and the driver has refused to rule out Aston Martin as a potential option for next season.
When considering Ferrari’s involvement in Schumacher’s Haas seat, most would assume that the 23-year-old is near guaranteed an extension with his current team.
However, given that we are approaching the summer break and he has not fully committed to Haas, some might suggest negotiations are not going as smoothly as planned.
“Obviously, I think there is lots to [being] here [with Haas]. So that’s where my focus lies at the moment”, he told The Race.
“My focus right now is with Haas. Ferrari is obviously full, and here is not. What happens, we will see."
“Again, if there’s anything that we have a feeling we need to share, we’ll share it at the right moment."
“I never say never”, was Schumacher’s response after being pressed on a potential switch to Aston Martin.
It would be a stretch to suggest that these quotes spell the end of his time at Haas, especially given the generally positive attitude of Guenther Steiner regarding his performances this season.
Few drivers will spell out their full intentions until a contract is signed, but the uncertainty surrounding Aston Martin’s selection process makes these quotes worth noting.
Sebastian Vettel has also endorsed Schumacher for the Aston Martin seat, so the upcoming weeks and months will determine if the Ferrari-backed driver continues with Haas or replaces his mentor at Aston Martin.
