Mick Schumacher has started his first season of Formula 1 for Haas F1 and although it´s being somewhat complicated, he is learning a lot.

Schumacher told Channel 4:

"I don’t really realise what I’m doing when I’m in the car, let’s say facial expressions wise or feelings wise, I just love driving so I enjoy what I’m doing,"

"And I don’t enjoy it when I’m not first so it’s kind of a torture driving at the back with no real competition.

"Therefore I have to make myself a Grand Prix, so let’s say if I have Nicholas [Latifi] in front of me or [George] Russell, it’s just like for me they are the leaders and I have to catch them.

"That’s the game that I’m playing to always stay motivated, to always keep on pushing and always be 100 per cent."

Mick has finished both races (Bahrain and Imola) in 16th place, beating his teammate in the two races.

"I think in general you have to say that you can’t make everybody happy, and I know my worth, I know what I have accomplished to be here," the Haas driver said.

"Having that surname doesn’t only give me the surname, it gives me potentially also the genes so I think I have a very good package and maybe the best teacher in the world."

Schumacher won Formula 2 last season with Prema Racing, achieving 2 race wins and 10 podiums and the European Formula 3.

This year Haas´car has not improved much on track, being the slowest car on the grid and apparently having poor handling making even more difficult for the two rookie drivers to drive it.
