Ferrari’s vice chairman, Piero Ferrari has admitted that Ferrari is helping Mick Schumacher, the son of legendary Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher a more competitive car in Formula 1.
The Italian team is helping Mick Schumacher, who is currently driving for Haas Formula 1 team speed up in F1.
“He is making his way in a team that we support,” Ferrari, the only living son of the great Maranello marque’s iconic founder Enzo told the Italian media.
“His team (Haas) has made the choice not to spend in 2021 so they are using a car that was already not good in 2020,” he added.
“But they are spending for 2022 and we at Ferrari are also helping Haas. For his second year, we hope to give Schumacher a car with which he can demonstrate his qualities.”
Piero Ferrari also admitted he misses Michael Schumacher, who is the legendary seven time world champion having won five titles under Ferrari.
“I had the pleasure of having Schumacher as a guest in my home, drinking a bottle of red win together. He really enjoyed these moments of intimacy and tranquillity.
“He was a simple person – clear, precise, a very linear personality,” Ferrari said.
“I’m sorry that we talk about him today as if he is dead, because he is not. Michael is there but he cannot communicate.”
