Michael Schumacher’s son, Mick, will race in Formula 1 next season after Haas announced him as part of their new-look driver line-up for 2021.

Schumacher, who is currently leading the F2 championship, has joined Haas on a multi-year deal to join Nikita Mazepin, whose own promotion was announced yesterday.

The 21-year-old is part of Ferrari’s young driver scheme and given Haas’ close ties with the F1 giant, the move had been mooted for a while.

Schumacher will drive the car first during Practice 1 at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix next weekend before participating in the post-season tests at the same circuit the following week.

Frenchman Cyril Abiteboul is leaving Renault, where he was Formula One team principal, the company announced on Monday in a press release.

Laurent Rossi, director of strategy and business development for Renault, will take over the motor sports unit which will be rebranded Alpine.

The Formula One team, which is based in Enstone in England, will replace its predominantly yellow livery with the red, white and blue of the French flag.

That leaves the responsibility for running the F1 team open and its executive director, the Franco-Polish Marcin Budkowski, could take over the reins.

F1 2021 News: Daniel Ricciardo, US Trip, Geography blunder, Hollywood sign, Instagram, Larrikin, Switch to McLaren

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo has cheekily fooled fans after being roasted for what appeared to be a poor example of geography knowledge from the Aussie F1 star.

Ricciardo has been on holiday in the United States during the season break, taking time off before he gets back behind the wheel this year in new colours.

It seems though that wherever he goes, Ricciardo is taking his humour along with him and some of his fans fell for his latest gag.
