Schumacher or Shwartzman has to make way for F3 champion at Prema

Mick Schumacher or Robert Shartzman will have to make way for Oscar Piastri in 2021, as the 2020 Formula 3 champion makes the transition to the Prema Racing F2 team.

Piastri won the Formula 3 title in the last race of the season. The young Australian defeated Théo Pourchaire, who was already competing in Formula 2 last weekend. He drove for HWA Racelab during the Grand Prix in Bahrain. 

Who has to leave Prema?

Piastri won the title in F3 with the strong Italian team and hopes to do the same in 2021 in Formula 2. Prema also have the strongest chances on paper this season. For Prema, Mick Schumacher is leading the championship with the drivers and together with Robert Shwartzman, they are also at the top of the constructors.

However, this means that Prema will have to say goodbye to one of the current drivers. Both are also a contender for the final Haas seat in Formula 1, so it is possible to move on that way. If Schumacher wins F2, he will not be allowed to stay in that division.
