Race of Champions is an event that has been held annually since 1988. In a series of races, drivers compete against each other in pairs of identical cars. The event returns in 2022 after a two-year absence in a new format with ice and snow.
In 2019, Vettel and Schumacher already teamed up at the event in Mexico, where they finished second. Vettel has already won six races together with Mick's father, Michael Schumacher. Valtteri Bottas will also participate in this year's event for Team Finland.
Vettel and Schumacher more than motivated
"I’m really looking forward to being back competing in the Race of Champions again and to represent Germany together with Mick" Vettel is quoted on Motorsportweek.com. "The competition will be very strong especially from the Nordic drivers who have a lot more experience than us driving on snow and ice.”
"We have to continue the success of Team Germany and fight for victory, and I am sure we both will take that very seriously", Schumacher adds. "We will try to make up for our lack of experience with our motivation and resilience over the days of the event. Either way, I so very much look forward to meeting all the other drivers and spending time with them during the Race of Champions weekend.”
