Mick Schumacher’s conspiracy theories refuted: “He won because he was the best”

In 2018, Mick Schumacher surprised friend and foe by dominating the F3 from the second half of the season and still becoming European Champion. That raised eyebrows for certain competitors.

During the first 14 races of the season, Schumacher only managed to finish on the podium twice, but during the second half of the season he was untenable and became European Champion.

One of his rivals for the title, then Red Bull junior Dan Ticktum, rang the bell by openly questioning the legality of Schumacher’s Prema car and his teammate Robert Shwartzman.

“Compared to the first two, nobody on the starting grid has a chance,” said Ticktum at the time. “I would describe their pace as ‘interesting’.”

Rene Rosin, Schumacher’s team principal at Prema in 2018, now emphasizes at ‘GP Racing’ that everything went according to the rules for his team.

“Those comments were inappropriate. If anyone had any doubts about the legality of the car or engine, they could have protested. But nobody did, ”said Rosin.

“He always fought for top positions, but he never got the result he needed,” said Rosin. “Until the race weekend in Spa, when Schumacher took his first victory. That was the turning point, a legal turning point. ”

“We said to him, ‘Mick, take it one race at a time, don’t think about the championship. When you think about the championship, it gets more difficult. We won the title because Mick and the team did a great job, ”clarifies Rosin.

Even now Rosin praises his former rider.

“His greatest quality is self-criticism. He’s not arrogant and he doesn’t always think he’s right, he’s a hard worker. He will continue until he understands everything and gets the most out of everything. ”

After the title in F3, Mick Schumacher also managed to capture the Formula 2 title in the very last race in 2020. This year, Michael Schumacher’s son made his Formula 1 debut, once again showing the legendary letter combination ‘MSC’ in Formula 1.
