For Schumacher, the start of 2020 did not go entirely according to plan. The campaign to become a Formula 2 champion started with some setbacks, but in the meantime the German is firmly in the lead and nothing seems to stand in his way of a transition to F1. Gerhard Berger also thinks Michael's son is ready.
Schumacher ready for Formula 1
''I like him. He is slowly but surely working his way up to the top of each category and that is important to me with a driver. He has to fight with his head and endurance for the title and then it doesn't matter if he comes second. I see that with Mick and I also saw that with Michael'', Berger says to Speedweek.com.
The ten-time Grand Prix winner thinks Schumacher is ready for the step to F1. ''I think he's ready," says Berger, who thinks Mick looks a lot like his father. ''How he walks, how he looks, how he works. In everything he looks a lot like Michael and I would be very happy for him and his family if he is successful in Formula 1'', concludes the Austrian.
