Mick Schumacher Considers New Challenge with Alpine’s WEC Team for 2024
Formula 1 Driver Mick Schumacher Explores Options Beyond F1 in the World Endurance Championship
Mick Schumacher, the son of the legendary seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher, found himself off the Formula 1 grid at the conclusion of the 2022 season. His two seasons with Haas were characterized by disappointment, with only two points finishes in 44 race appearances.
Initially joining Mercedes as their reserve driver last winter, Schumacher harbored hopes of returning to a Formula 1 race seat in 2024. However, a lack of opportunities has compelled the young German, who clinched the prestigious Formula 2 title in 2020, to explore options beyond the realm of Formula 1.
In recent developments, Schumacher participated in an extensive test at the Jerez circuit in Spain, where he had the opportunity to drive Alpine’s Hypercar. The test was conducted with the aim of securing one of the six available seats in Alpine’s two-car World Endurance Championship (WEC) program for the 2024 season.
