No Space At Mercedes For Schumacher

No Space At Mercedes For Schumacher

Mercedes have not offered Mick Schumacher a place in its driver development program with Toto Wolff claiming there is “little space”.

The 19-year-old has been linked to his father Michael Schumacher’s last teams – Ferrari and Mercedes – following a successful 2018 season in Formula 3 in which he won eight of 30 races and lifted the championship.

Bild am Sonntag newspaper asked Mercedes boss Wolff if Schumacher had been offered a deal. “Mick won his Formula 3 title with a Mercedes engine, but for now, you have to give him time to develop,” said Wolff.

Told that Schumacher is apparently also wanted by Ferrari’s driver academy, Wolff did not sound as though he thought the two grid rivals were going to get into a messy scrap for his signature.

“There is currently little space in our junior program,” Wolff replied. “My priority is to find a seat for Esteban Ocon in 2020.”
