Vettel happy to help Mick Schumacher ahead of F1 debut

As a rookie, Sebastian Vettel learned from his idol Michael Schumacher. Now Michael's son Mick is making his Formula 1 debut and Vettel is happy to step up to the mentor role.

Mick Schumacher will join the Haas F1 team in 2021 after winning the 2020 Formula 2 championship, and also brings the famous Schumacher name back to the sport for the first time since his father’s retirement in 2012.

Vettel often sought advice from Michael Schumacher during the earlier days of his Formula 1 career and is willing to do the same for 21-year-old Mick.

“I still am a Michael fan. and I'm happy to help where I can,” Vettel said. “Mick is a great guy and I obviously have a very special connection to his father. It's a shame that Michael is not able to witness Mick's progression in the last years and his step now into Formula 1. From my side, I really like him, we get along well, and I'm happy to tell him everything I know.”

Michael Schumacher remains one of the most successful Formula 1 drivers of all time, having earned seven World Championships and 91 race victories. Both of these records were equalled and surpassed respectively by Lewis Hamilton in the 2020 season.

Vettel raced against Schumacher from 2010 to 2012 after the legendary driver made a comeback with the Mercedes team, and the two enjoyed a close friendship. Mick Schumacher recently spoke about his relationship with Vettel as being similar to that of Vettel and his father.

“I think what my dad was to Sebastian, he is for me someone that I'm close to,” the younger Schumacher told Bild.

In response to this, Vettel admitted he was “flattered” and added: “Obviously I watched his father win a lot more races than he could have watched me win!”

But whilst Vettel is willing to give Mick any advice he needs, the four-times World Champion also believes that Mick will be able to find his own way.

“I will be happy to help,” Vettel was quoted by Sky Sports F1. “But the way I look at him, I see him as a person.”

Vettel will race for the Aston Martin team in 2021, having been dropped by Ferrari in favour of Carlos Sainz.
