Schumacher: Formula 1 is clearly my goal but admits second year in F2 possible

Mick Schumacher is still dreaming of a future in Formula 1, but he admits he needs a second season in F2 so he can learn some of the important lessons needed. Schumacher is currently 15th in the standings and hasn't scored a point since the 2nd race in Azerbaijan three rounds ago.

The 20-year-old won the European F3 championship after a fine display of form in the second half of the season. Similar to his father, it seems as if young Schumacher has the right mentality when he makes a few mistakes on the track.

"There will always be setbacks, but I stay focused and concentrate on myself," Schumacher told the German magazine, Socrates. 

"I try to hide the negative side and gain something positive from the situation. It's not always easy, but I can continue to learn that way."

Even with the pressure from the media and fans, Schumacher continues to play it cool and relaxed when it comes to finding the time to move to Formula 1. He's already had a test drive with Ferrari this year but knows he must take it slowly before he reaches his goal.

"My goal is clearly Formula 1, but I have no specific timetable as to when. For me, it's about taking one step at a time and only going to Formula 1 when I'm ready. So if I need to do a second season in Formula 2 then I will," he added.
