Mick Schumacher gets his elbows out to take P13 and decent result

Mick Schumacher enjoyed racing with the bog boys at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Finishing P13, the Haas driver had some good wheel to wheel battles and was much more involved than Haas usually are. 

"Finishing in front of an Alfa is something that we weren’t anticipating and starting from last and finishing P13 is quite a decent result for us," Schumacher said after the race. 

"We were keen on having a point but frankly we don’t have the car at the moment to do so but nonetheless this was great experience as I’ve been able to battle with the top guys and the championship leader."

Good exposure to top level racing 

"For me personally, from a growth point of view, it was very good. We always knew it was going to be tough but today was a very nice day and after having a disappointing day yesterday, we came back on a high.

"Ending this first half of the season on a high is very positive for everybody - the team and myself - and being able to battle with the top guys brought me so much experience and knowing that I can throw out my elbows, I’m glad I got that opportunity."
