Timo Glock: Binotto never believed in Mick


Former Formula 1 driver, Sky Deutschland expert Timo Glock is delighted with the performance of Nick de Vries in Monza – and sympathizes with Mick Schumacher …

Timo Glock: “Nick de Vries convinced me with his debut race. He only got behind the wheel of the Williams on Saturday morning, but was able to prove himself in qualifying and performed superbly on Sunday. In the race, Nick acted very smart, was able to break away on the first lap, quickly found the right rhythm and kept his position in the “DRS train”. He has clearly stated his ambitions for next season.

In my opinion, this is a powerful statement for the pilot market. Previously, he was considered a candidate for the role of a reserve rider, and now many would like to sign a contract with him as the main pilot. I have no doubt that next year we will see him in this role in one of the teams. Unfortunately, for Mick Schumacher, this means that in the fight for the remaining places in the teams, he has a new opponent.

Mick’s performance received far less attention, although he did well too, finishing 12th after a lot of practice problems in a car that lacked speed at Monza. A decent result, and this time he clearly surpassed his teammate Kevin Magnussen. If a restart was announced after the safety car, Mick could earn points. He did not make a single mistake, he achieved the maximum from the car.

I must say that Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto never believed in Mick. The lack of commitment on his part suggests that the collaboration between Ferrari and Mick Schumacher will end at the end of the year. The question is where Mick will end up after that.”
