Guenther Steiner: Mick Schumacher is very humble


The German has handled the step up very well.

The Australian Grand Prix podcast In the Fast Lane has released an episode with Haas F1® Team Principal, Guenther Steiner.

Steiner joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Michael Lamonato to reflect on the American team's debut in Australia in 2016, explained why he's looking ahead to the 2022 Formula 1® regulation changes and talked about his increased profile from the 'Formula 1: Drive to Survive' Netflix series.

Steiner goes on to assess rookie drivers Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin, saying Schumacher works hard, is humble and is dealing with the step from Formula 2® to Formula 1® very well.

“He’s very humble… he knows he has got a lot to learn, and he works hard on learning everything, he gives himself time, when he makes mistakes, he’s very self-critical,” Steiner said.

“His family is in racing and he knows what he’s doing so he knows that he needs to be humble. Even though from the driving, F2 to F1, they’re very technically prepared it’s still a big step, it’s still a big step in everything and he’s very well aware of that and he’s dealing with it very good,” he continued.

The podcast is available on Spotify, Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts platforms.
