Mick Schumacher's future at Formula 1 team Haas is still unclear. "We will announce what we are doing, hopefully next week," said team boss Günther Steiner in Brazil on TV station RTL. For the US racing team, it is crucial "who leads the team stably into the future".
Schumacher's contract expires at the end of this season. Nico Hülkenberg is considered a promising candidate at Haas for the second cockpit alongside Denmark's Kevin Magnussen, who is set for 2023.
Should Schumacher leave Haas, Williams could still offer a very small chance for the son of record world champion Michael Schumacher. The traditional English team wants to promote the American Logan Sargeant from Formula 2 in the coming season, but he still needs the necessary points for the super license.
After the Grand Prix of São Paulo this weekend, the Formula 1 season finale is a week later in Abu Dhabi.
