UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: Mick Schumacher will leave Haas Formula 1 Team at the end of this season, as the team announced another German driver, Nico Hulkenberg, as his replacement after months of speculation.

Mick Schumacher has been under intense pressure for the majority of the 2022 Formula 1 season to save his drive because it became increasingly clear that, despite an improvement in performance throughout the year, Haas was still looking to change their 2023 line-up.

Haas announced today that the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix would be Schumacher’s final race for the team this coming weekend.

Guenther Steiner, the team’s boss, expressed his gratitude towards Mick Schumacher for contributing to the team over the past two years. He added that the driver has grown and developed as a driver during Mick’s time with Haas. He wished Mick all the best on behalf of the team as they decided to go their separate ways.

Schumacher has been under a lot of pressure this season because he hasn’t been able to score, while Kevin Magnussen, his new teammate, has had three top-ten finishes in the first four races.

During that time, Mick Schumacher suffered a significant crash in Jeddah’s qualifying. The 23-year-old’s no-scoring run ended with back-to-back points in the British and Austrian Grands Prix.

Guenther Steiner named Nico Hulkenberg to be Mick Schumacher’s replacement for the 2023 season less than 30 minutes after announcing his departure.

As a substitute driver for Racing Point, now Aston Martin, Nico Hulkenberg has remained on the fringes of Formula 1, scoring in two of his four race starts.

The 35-year-old Nico Hulkenberg, a veteran with 181 Grands Prix starts to his name, will partner Kevin Magnussen in the next season. 

On Tuesday, Hulkenberg will begin working for Haas when he takes part in the final Formula 1 test of the season at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

Together with Pietro Fittipaldi, the team’s test and reserve driver, he will drive the VF-22 this season.
