Mick Schumacher is ecstatic for his close friend Max Verstappen, who has won the Formula One World Championship.
Mick Schumacher is looking forward to seeing what the future brings for him and his close friend Max Verstappen, who is set to earn his maiden Formula One World Championship title in 2021.
Their dads raced together at Benetton in 1994, before the two sons were born, therefore Schumacher and Verstappen’s life have been interwoven since infancy.
Schumacher stated he never anticipated himself and Max to end up in F1 together, despite spending so much time together as children while their fathers Michael and Jos kept a connection.
“Yeah, it’s great. Obviously, I’m happy for him. He deserves it!” Schumacher told when asked about watching his childhood friend win the title.
“He’s been in a sport for some time now, and he’s always done well, so it’s interesting to see what the future holds for him, but also for me.”
Schumacher went on to say that he chooses to follow in his father’s footsteps and win a championship like he did seven times.
“I think I wouldn’t have expected, as children back then, that this would be the case,” he explained.
“But I [have] never given up on that dream, I’m living in it!”
Schumacher’s straightforward strategy for emulating Verstappen
Another similarity between Schumacher and Verstappen is that both had their initial single-seater experience driving for Van Amersfoort in ADAC Formula 4 in 2015.
“It was good, they essentially brought me into formula racing,” Schumacher explained of that period in his career.
“It [was a] great year working with them, I was able to visit Amsterdam as well and spend some time in Holland, and I definitely had a good year there.”
Verstappen is perhaps the more accomplished of the two sons, strangely reversing the relationship between their two fathers.
When questioned if he has any special plans in mind to follow in Verstappen’s footsteps and earn a first Formula One title, Schumacher answered his goal is simple.
“The goal is to do well, in every form and every way, to present yourself to potentially top teams, so then you can make the jump forwards.”
