The advice for Ferrari's in-waiting F1 star from his predecessor
Two of Ferrari's Formula 1 juniors ended up fighting for the 2020 Formula 2 title. One has a deal with Haas for 2021 while the other faces a year on the sidelines. But that didn't work out badly for the last driver Ferrari brought through, as he explains
Ferrari had an embarrassment of riches in the 2020 Formula 2 season. It had five of its junior drivers placed on the final step of the single-seater ladder - where three finished in the top four championship places and two ultimately fought for the title.
Only one will race in Formula 1 in 2021, but he will not be alone in representing the Scuderia's young driver interests on the grand prix scene.
As Mick Schumacher prepares to make his debut in the upcoming campaign - wherever and whenever that is set to begin - he will join Antonio Giovinazzi in being on Ferrari's books (although it should be noted there is a difference between contracts with the F1 team and the driver academy), while racing for another F1 squad. Both will be running Ferrari power at Haas and Alfa Romeo respectively.
