Mick Schumacher holds on to Ferrari dream amid contract uncertainty

Haas driver Mick Schumacher would relish the chance to drive for Ferrari, like his father Michael, but his future is still uncertain.

The German is currently without an F1 seat for the 2023 season. Haas have not offered the 23-year-old a new contract as they look to keep their options open as other moves play out.

Schumacher was expected to fill the Aston Martin seat vacated by his compatriot and friend Sebastian Vettel next year, but the British team's surprise signing of Fernando Alonso has brought that notion to a grinding halt.

The up-and-coming driver, who scored his first F1 points at the British Grand Prix before a sixth-place finish in Austria this year, remains on the books at the Ferrari Drivers Academy and is still Scuderia's reserve driver.

It seems unlikely that Schumacher will be given a chance at Ferrari next term, with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz completing their lineup.

However, the young driver is confident he'd be able to give a good account of himself if his dream comes true.

"Our cars are not exactly the same, but they do have similarities," he told RacingNews365.com.

"And I've grown up with Ferrari since 2019, so I think I'm familiar with all the procedures. I would be happy to show what I have in me."
