Formula 1: That's what the paddock in Brazil is talking about

Mick Schumacher still doesn't know what his future will look like before the Formula 1 race in São Paulo on Sunday (7 p.m. / RTL and Sky). His Haas teammate Kevin Magnussen amazed with the first pole position of his career.

Coup from Denmark

This season Kevin Magnussen will not be forgotten. First Haas brought him back, then the Dane also delivered surprisingly strong races. The crowning glory: Magnussen was now first in qualifying and, benefiting from a break after an accident, snagged the first pole position of his career - it was also the first for Haas. "I came back this year after a year off and it was just an incredible journey," said Magnussen, finding his coup "incredible". Team boss Günther Steiner proudly said: "Kevin delivered the lap when we needed it. That was really strong."

Look for Plan B

Mick Schumacher could not advertise himself with the last place in the qualification. But he also wants to be a regular driver at Haas in the coming season. However, the US racing team continues to play for time when it comes to drivers. So what would be a plan B for the son of record world champion Michael Schumacher? According to "Auto, Motor und Sport", the 23-year-old would be a candidate as a substitute driver at Mercedes if Daniel Ricciardo decides against the job with the Silver Arrows. The Australian has to leave McLaren at the end of the season, but is also considered a potential emergency nail for his former team Red Bull. Schumacher could learn from a multiple world champion racing team at Mercedes and be available as a substitute driver for customer teams.

Crash von FTX

The crypto industry has long been advertising with and in the premier class of motorsport. But the world of blockchain technology is in trouble. The trading platform FTX has now filed for bankruptcy. What does that have to do with Formula 1? FTX had become a Mercedes sponsor in 2021. The Silver Arrows reacted to the crash at the Grand Prix in São Paulo and suspended the collaboration. The logos were also removed. FTX is suspected, among other things, of embezzling customer funds, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Bahamas, where the group's international business is based.

Farewell, fury

Mauro Forghieri was a legend at Ferrari. From the 1960s onwards, as technical director of Scuderia, the engineer designed racing cars that were second to none. The result: 54 Grand Prix victories and eleven Formula 1 world championship titles. Forghieri died on Monday at the age of 87. The Formula 1 team is now commemorating him. The man, also known as Furie because of his temper, is honored with a sticker on the cars of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. "Ciao Furia" (Farewell, Fury) is written on it.
