“F1 debut is ten times more difficult for Mick Schumacher”

According to Nico Rosberg, the pressure of Mick Schumacher’s surname will make his F1 debut ten times more difficult.

Mick Schumacher will make his debut at the highest level at the age of twenty-one as the F2 champion with the American Haas F1 team. As a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, this is not uncommon were it not for the fact that he is the son of seven-time F1 world champion and living legend Michael Schumacher.

As the son of the 1982 F1 world champion, Keke Rosberg, Nico Rosberg is an expert by experience and knows better than anyone that expectations will be high.

“It’s not easy being the ‘son of’,” Rosberg told F1 Insider. “With Mick it is another ten times harder, because Michael’s career was not that long ago and he was even more successful.

“There will be a lot of media attention, probably even greater than that of Lewis Hamilton at first.”

The 2016 world champion hopes that his team can keep him out of the wind enough so that Schumacher can calmly build his career.

“I hope Mick can put that aside and focus on his job or it takes a lot of the fun away,” added the 2016 F1 World Champion.

“The media will not give him time, but he will have to stand up for himself. It takes time and patience. ”

“After all, I had to wait seven years to win my first race and even eleven years to win the title. You have to keep that in mind if you want to judge Mick this year. ”
