Doornbos: 1000 percent sure that Schumacher will drive in F1 in 2021

Mick Schumacher is regularly associated with Formula 1. On the one hand because he can race quite well, which he shows in the lower class. On the other hand of course because he is the son of a racing legend. This Schumacher is expected to make his Formula 1 debut this year, albeit in free practice, and there is a very good chance that he will compete in the championship in 2021.

Absolutely sure of return

Robert Doornbos, former F1 driver, is firmly convinced that Schumacher will make that step. He says this firmly in his column at Ziggo Sport. "Yes, Schumacher did stand out in Formula 2 this weekend because he took the lead in the championship and has a small gap to Callum Ilott."

"Will he end up in Formula 1? I dare say yes, 1000 percent sure he will be driving Formula 1 next year. I don't see him giving away the title and I expect him to have a very good car at the end of the season to have the big name, Schumacher, back in Formula 1".

Doornbos continues: "I expect at Alfa Romeo, which is the junior team of Ferrari, not to increase the pressure as much as possible." This is logical, because Ferrari itself is full of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. But anyway: "The name Schumacher returns."
