When people hear “motorsport,” the first thing that usually comes to mind is motorcycle racing. However, motorsport or motorsport is a term that is also used to describe sporting events involving the use of motor vehicles. Popular motorsports include Formula 1, NASCAR, Indy Car and MotoGP.

After Formula 1, NASCAR is the second most popular racing series in the world. Last year, Ally 400 – a racing event that takes place at the Nashville Superspeedway in Tennessee – has been added to NASCAR’s cup series.

This article will highlight some of the most popular annual motorsport events that every petrol enthusiast should see in person. Call it a bucket list if you like.

● 24 Hours or Le Mans

It is one of the most prestigious motorsport events in the world. Unlike regular races where the winner is determined by who crosses the finish line first, the winner of this race is determined by the car that covers the most distance on the race track after 24 hours. It is an endurance car race that tests cars’ ability to drive fast for long periods of time without developing mechanical faults.

The venue for the annual event is the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France. It is organized by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and is the oldest endurance competition. The race usually takes place in June. Drivers who participate in the event often cover well over 5,000 km.

● Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix is ​​a Formula 1 event held in late May or early June. Since its inception in 1929, the race has been held 79 times. The racing circuit —Circuit de Monaco— is considered one of the most difficult in Formula 1 due to its many tight and uneven turns.

The length of the Monaco Grand Prix race is 260.286 km, consisting of 78 laps. Along with the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Indianapolis 500, the three events are considered the Triple Crown, the most famous motor race in the world.

●Indianapolis 500

Formerly known as the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, this event is part of the IndyCar Series which takes place in Indiana. The IndyCar series is the highest level of car racing in the American championship. The competition takes place over Memorial Day weekend and is part of the Triple Crown.

The first edition was held in 1911. Today, more than 250,000 fans flock to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to watch the event each year. The race consists of 200 laps that make up a distance of 805 km. Qualifying races are held on a separate weekend and drivers must complete four timed laps.

● Bathurst 1000

Bathurst 1000 is a 1000km event held in New South Wales, Australia. The 161-lap event is staged annually at the Mount Panorama circuit and is part of the Supercars Championship. The first edition was held in 1960, and since then 64 editions have taken place.

Race winners receive the Peter Brock Trophy in honor of one of the most successful drivers in the history of the event.

In the roundup: Pierre Gasly was dejected after failing to follow through on his strong result in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix last weekend.

In short

Gasly suffers a litany of misfortunes

After notching his best result of the season so far with fifth place in Azerbaijan, Gasly suffered a Q1 elimination in Canada and took the checkered flag in 14th place.

He later said he was “very disappointed” with the problems that materialized in qualifying. “We had this brake issue, so the front brakes slipped and we were basically braking on three tires and that put us out of position.

“Then when we started from the back, we know it’s always harder, but we just struggled massively for pace. Massive understeer, poor traction, struggled with brake temperatures and everything. So just a very, very difficult day for us.

Tsunoda “pushed too much”

Yuki Tsunoda wasn’t in the mood to elaborate when he spoke to RaceFans after his exit from Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix: “I pushed too hard on the pit exit and that was it.”

Surprise McLaren test for Daruvala

Red Bull Junior Team member Jehan Daruvala will make his Formula 1 debut today. However, he will not be driving for the F1 team or its AlphaTauri junior team.

McLaren are offering the 23-year-old a two-day test at Silverstone. He will drive the team’s 2021 car, the MCL35M.

Daruvala was connected with another F1 team earlier in his career. In 2011, at the age of 13, he was named a finalist in One in a Billion, an India-based talent search competition organized by Force India (now Aston Martin).

Assetto Corsa Competizione replaces Gran Turismo at the FIA ​​Motorsport Games

Following the demise of the FIA ​​branding of the new seventh edition of the hit Gran Turismo series, motorsport’s governing body has announced that its annual Motorsports Games event will no longer take place on the game.

Assetto Corsa Competizione has been chosen as the title for the 2022 edition of the FIA ​​Motorsport Games. It will take place at Paul Ricard on October 29.

Mick Schumacher received a big hug from his mother Corinna after mastering the wet in Canada, just like his father.

The son of seven-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher took sixth place on the starting grid for Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. He and his Haas teammate Kevin Magnussen both put up impressive finishes in qualifying, despite the stormy weather conditions on Saturday.

After completing the qualifying session, Schumacher was seen greeting his mother on the track, giving her a huge hug as the pair smiled, before fleeing to the Haas team tent at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Stormy weather had wreaked havoc on the competitors during qualifying, with the entire session taking place with water on the track. As a result, the riders used wet and intermediate tires to complete their laps.

Despite the weather, Schumacher clinched his best qualifying position of the season so far, having struggled so far in 2022. The 23-year-old German remains without a single point in F1 since his debut at the start of Last year.

He is currently 19th in the Drivers’ Championship, with his best result of the season in the opening race in Bahrain when he finished 11th overall.

Who will win the Canadian Grand Prix? Let us know in the comments section below.



Mick Schumacher overcame wet conditions in Montreal to deliver his best qualifying performance of 2022

Ahead of next season, Schumacher’s place on the F1 grid is under threat, with former driver Christian Danner even warning him he is “unattractive” to other teams.

Danner’s comments came after Schumacher was involved in a number of costly crashes this season, with his crashes in Saudi Arabia and Monaco costing a total of £1.64m.

He will start the Canadian Grand Prix sixth, however, one place behind teammate Magnussen, who is currently 12th in the Drivers’ Championship with 15 points after eight races.

After replacing Nikita Mazepin before the start of the season, the Danish driver collected two ninth places as well as a fifth in the season opener in Bahrain.

Max Verstappen will start on pole in Montreal after qualifying first ahead of Spanish duo Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz.

Reigning world champion Max Verstappen set the pace in second practice at the Canadian Grand Prix, but defending rival Charles Leclerc kept him honest as he found himself just 0.081 seconds behind on the circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

The Red Bull driver clocked a time of 1m 14.127s on new soft tyres, with a lump of fuel removed, to top the times ahead of Leclerc, with Carlos Sainz’s second Ferrari two-tenths of a second off the pace in third.

AS IT HAPPENED: All the action from the second practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix

The surprise of the session may have come from Sebastian Vettel, winner in Canada in 2018, the German putting his Aston Martin to a superb fourth place, just 0.315s from the ultimate pace.

Fernando Alonso looked strong in early practice and he continued that form in session two, moving his Alpine into fifth – a tenth behind fellow world champion Vettel – with AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly sixth.

Gasly ran wide at the final chicane and went to the wrong side of the bollard, prompting the stewards to say they would investigate the incident after the race. Vettel did the same and will also be investigated, as will teammate Lance Stroll.

George Russell was the first Mercedes in seventh, with McLaren’s Lando Norris finishing eighth and making seven different teams in the top eight, with just 0.860s separating the byte.

Daniel Ricciardo continued his turnaround in form with ninth place, less than half a tenth of a second behind team-mate Norris, as Esteban Ocon completed the top 10.

Former Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen was one of the most popular drivers in F1 history and, in his day, one of the fastest and most impressive.

Adored for his fiercely direct character, the 2007 world champion of Ferrari earned himself the nickname “The Iceman” due to his avowed hatred of the media and his muffled, wordless personality. His cool temper, his perceived “coldness” towards others in the paddock, and his origins in the cold climate of Scandinavia add several meanings to him. However, his life away from the track was sometimes a little less private and quiet.


Raikkonen has 21 Formula 1 GP victories to his name

Finn Raikkonen, 42, was Formula 1‘s oldest driver when he recently opted to hang up his helmet and retire at the end of the 2021 season. His age and experience at the time of his F1 debut were, however, an entirely different story for very different reasons.

His signing at Sauber was hugely controversial at the time, with some drivers even trying to veto Raikkonen’s entry due to what some perceived as a huge lack of crucial experience for the then 21-year-old. . The Finn had only competed in 23 motor races before his debut at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix.

After racing for Sauber for one season, he went on to drive for McLaren, Ferrari, Lotus, Ferrari Again and Alfa Romeo (a return to the Sauber team which currently races under the Italian manufacturer’s new marque).

Raikkonen loved his freedom, lived a flamboyant lifestyle

Throughout his professional racing career, Raikkonen hasn’t been afraid of a drink or two. Famously returning straight to his yacht in the port of Monaco, shirt and with friends already pouring glasses of champagne, during the 2006 Monaco Grand Prix when the engine of his McLaren failed at Portier.

This idea was undoubtedly more recent when he staggered onto the stage at the 2018 FIA awards gala to reclaim his third place in the championship, much to the embarrassment of his wife Minttu.

In his book ‘Unknown Kimi Raikkonen’, and similarly recalled during one of two interviews for the F1 Beyond The Grid podcast hosted by Tom Clarkson, Raikkonen told a story of being drunk for 16 days between 2013 Bahrain and Spanish Grands Prix when he drove for Lotus.

“It’s normal. It was very normal,” he admits. “It might not be in the book but the whole summer has been more or less running and partying, it’s nothing new and for me it’s normal. Outside it might seem a bit weird but for me in the past it was normal… Once you do it it doesn’t seem that long I always joked that as long as you have more drinking days than drinking days hangover, everything is fine.

Related: Kimi Raikkonen’s Long and Strange Career Explained

After winning the opening race for Lotus at the 2013 Australian Grand Prix, he remarkably finished P2 in Bahrain and Spain in his final season with the team.

“I don’t remember those 16 days well. Half of the things people had to say to me. We had just crossed Europe and we had a little fun. It wasn’t the first time, and it It was normal for us. Anyway, there’s nothing wrong with that story. What’s wrong with that? There’s nothing wrong with that. It was pretty normal, and it happened all the time.Räikkonen.

“There are a lot of theories that prove it, you fly better after having fun…I’m getting older. Sport is dangerous, I always said it was more dangerous than drinking beer Normally if you drink you don’t hurt yourself, you just get hungover.

“I don’t care how I’m remembered because luckily I was able to do most things the way I wanted to,” Raikkonen concluded.

Raikkonen’s insatiable love for everything

Raikkonen freely admits his love for racing, revealing how racing to the pinnacle of motorsport for 353 total entries was ultimately “just a hobby”. No other driver who comes close to Formula 1 would attribute the lifetime sacrifice it takes to get to this point to anything other than his job or his full-time career.

After his “first” retirement from Formula 1, he went straight into the World Rally Championship at the wheel of a Citroën C4 and scored his first points at the Jordan Rally before creating his own team in 2011, ICE One Racing. . The same year, Raikkonen made his debut with Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Truck Series, then signed a preliminary contract with Robby Gordon Motorsports – a deal that unfortunately fell through.


However, Raikkonen is set to make his second NASCAR debut after Formula 1 with Trackhouse Racing in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series at Watkins Glen in August. He was also recently announced as factory manager of the Kawasaki Racing Team in MXGP – the highest level of motocross racing.

His pure love and addiction to racing couldn’t be clearer – he’s arguably the most passionate about motorsports of them all, which may rightly surprise some. He was not just a comically monosyllabic, down-to-earth breath of fresh air in Formula 1. He was, and still is, a stellar, one-of-a-kind driver, racer and sportsman.

By Bruce Williams

Oscar Piastri looks set to make his highly anticipated Formula 1 debut sooner rather than later as preparations are underway for the 21-year-old Australian to be on the starting grid for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone from 1-2. July 3.

Piastri is set to enter the second Williams FW44, replacing Canadian Nicholas Latifi, who will make his final start with the team at its home race this weekend.

Piastri, the reigning FIA Formula 2 champion, was due to make his FP1 debut for Alpine over the British Grand Prix weekend, his likely debut with Williams clears the way for another of the drivers in the Alpine Junior Academy Aussie Jack Doohan to make his training debut at Silverstone.

It has been reported that Piastri has already had a seat installed at Williams – his fourth team seat in 2022, joining Alpine, McLaren and Mercedes. Yes, Mercedes!

He is seeking placement at Grove with Williams under a complicated deal involving car giants Mercedes and Nissan-Renault.

After several impressive tests with Alpine, the move will allow Alpine team bosses to assess Piastri in a suitable racing situation, giving him four races (England, Austria, France and Hungary), ahead of the month-long summer break. , date on which he will decide the future of the double world champion Fernando Alonso.

Alonso is asking for a two-year extension to his current contract, with the Spaniard making it clear he wants to continue in F1.

“I don’t want to think about stopping because I feel like I’m still better than the others, and until someone comes along and starts doing things that I can’t do with the car anymore, he there’s no reason to leave,” Alonso said.

Keeping Alonso would put Alpine in a difficult position vis-à-vis Piastri, as the contractual option to keep him expires at the end of June and can only be triggered if the French team guarantees the young Australian a race seat for 2023 and at the end of June. -of the.

Oscar Piastri is set to make his Formula 1 debut at the British Grand Prix driving for Williams

Piastri manager Mark Webber has reportedly put considerable pressure on Alpine to secure Piastri a full F1 program next year, with the team having long-term plans for the gifted Australian and not wanting to lose him.

This led Rossi to start negotiating a deal with Webber that will keep Piastri as an Alpine rider, allowing the French team to loan him out to another team, possibly for several years, depending on his Alonso decision.

Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi told AUTO ACTION at the Australian Grand Prix: “Oscar is something else.

“He’s one of the future champions of Formula 1. He’s extremely smart and mature for his age. Like extremely smart!

“I would love to have Oscar as a driver for the future of Alpine F1, and that is what we are working towards.”

Piastri is in demand as a reserve driver, for McLaren he has undertaken full race preparation for Monaco, including extensive simulation work, in case Lando Norris is too ill with his much publicized episode of tonsillitis.

Canadian Latifi has come under increasing pressure after a series of poor performances this season, compounded by team-mate Alex Albon who scored points in several races, while Latifi remains at zero.

Latifi struggled more than in his first two F1 seasons, well outpacing Albon and crashing with alarming regularity.

Williams team principal Jost Capito believes the situation is “a consequence of what happened after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last year, when he suffered a lot of online abuse , including some very disturbing death threats.”

It’s a head game; [Latifi] needs to feel comfortable and confident, so we’re doing everything we can to get him back in the right frame of mind,” Capito said recently.

The potential drive at Williams comes with complications for Alpine and Mercedes, as Latifi brings considerable funding to the struggling team.

Even though the Canadian is linked to the owners of Williams (his mother’s family are said to be part of the group of investors behind Dorilton Capital), Capito believes it is in the interest of the team to have a strong driving couple. .

It could also be that Mercedes is offering a cut-cost engine program to Williams to fit Piastri into an F1 car.

Although on the face of it this seems like a ridiculous suggestion, it dates back to a complicated deal between the two automotive giants of Renault and Mercedes that saw Renault/Nissan Navara-powered pick-ups redesigned as Mercedes utes, the X class.

That deal was canceled by Mercedes last year, which has soured relations between the two car giants, and it could be a small way to calm the waters.

Ahead of any announcement, Piastri will take part in a two-day test at Silverstone, jumping behind the wheel of the A521 from tonight as part of his reserve driver role with the Enstone team and in preparation for the place. 2023 previously targeted on the F1 grid.

A few weeks ago Piastri tested a 2021 Alpine at the Red Bull Ring in Austria

The British Grand Prix could mark a piece of history, if Jack Doohan and Piastri appear in FP1 it will be the first time since 1977 that three Australians have been on track in a Formula 1 session.

Ironically, the last time was at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix and saw Alan Jones (Shadow), Vern Schuppan (Surtees) and little known Australian driver Brian McGuire take to the track in an attempt to qualify for the race .

McGuire was driving a privateer Williams FW04, but failed to qualify for the Grand Prix.

Sadly, the Victorian died a few weeks later when he was fatally injured in a Formula Balance practice crash at Brands Hatch.

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz suffer nightmarish double retirement at Azerbaijan GP https://aaimonaco.org/ferraris-charles-leclerc-and-carlos-sainz-suffer-nightmarish-double-retirement-at-azerbaijan-gp/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 12:57:43 +0000 https://aaimonaco.org/ferraris-charles-leclerc-and-carlos-sainz-suffer-nightmarish-double-retirement-at-azerbaijan-gp/ Ferrari suffered a nightmarish double retirement at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix to provide another huge opportunity for Max Verstappen and Red Bull.

Ferrari suffered a nightmarish double retirement at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix to provide another huge opportunity for Max Verstappen and Red Bull.

Ferrari had clinched pole position through Charles Leclerc on Saturday, with Carlos Sainz starting fourth, but just 20 laps into Sunday’s race both of his cars were out of the race.

Sainz retired from fourth position on lap 9 with what the team later confirmed was a hydraulic problem.

Leclerc had been beaten at Turn 1 by Red Bull‘s Sergio Perez but was following a different strategy than Perez and Verstappen thanks to a well-timed stop under a virtual safety car.

Any chance of a dramatic fightback for Leclerc was thwarted on lap 20 when smoke billowed from the back of his Ferrari.

Leclerc immediately returned to the pits and retired the car, with what Ferrari confirmed was a power unit problem.

“It hurts,” Leclerc told Sky Sports shortly after his run was over. “We have to look into it so it doesn’t happen again. I can’t find the right words to describe it. It’s really disappointing. We have to look into it.”

When asked if it was a blow to the championship, he added: “It’s more than significant. Yeah, I don’t really have the words to be honest, I came straight from the car so far.

“It’s just a huge disappointment and I just hope we can go back and be on top of these things.”

Sainz added: “We were eager to start pushing after 9 laps of tire management and trying to get a good introduction to the tires and all of a sudden the hydraulics went and that was it, even more frustrating to seeing Charles not finish and having another problem., for sure a tough day for all of us.

“We are a team, we will go through different times of the year, this one is one of the most difficult and frustrating but we will try to make sure we get it back.”

Ferrari also saw two customer cars suffer breakdowns, with Alfa Romeo’s Guanyu Zhou and Haas’ Kevin Magnussen both retiring midway through the race.

The team will only have seven days to sort out their issues before racing again at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal.

Leclerc was already nine points behind Verstappen in the championship. Verstappen was leading the race and had the fastest lap at the end of Leclerc’s race, meaning the reigning world champion could extend that lead to 35 points by the end of the race.

If Perez finishes second, he will also overtake Leclerc in the championship standings.

Leclerc’s once-promising season has crumbled in recent races. At the Monaco Grand Prix, his home race, a Ferrari strategy turned a likely win into a fourth-place finish.

Despite taking six pole positions in eight races this year, Leclerc has only converted two into victory – his last this season was at the Australian Grand Prix on April 10.

Reliability issues had been a problem for Red Bull at the start of the season. Verstappen’s car failed to finish two of the first three races and after the Melbourne race the Dutchman was 47 points behind Leclerc.

Ferrari suffers more misery as Carlos Sainz misses Azerbaijan GP – ‘Something went wrong’ | F1 | sport https://aaimonaco.org/ferrari-suffers-more-misery-as-carlos-sainz-misses-azerbaijan-gp-something-went-wrong-f1-sport/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://aaimonaco.org/ferrari-suffers-more-misery-as-carlos-sainz-misses-azerbaijan-gp-something-went-wrong-f1-sport/ Ferrari suffered more misery on Sunday as Carlos Sainz lasted less than 10 laps of the 51-lap Azerbaijan Grand Prix – and Charles Leclerc then had to retire on lap 21 as well.

Ferrari suffered more misery on Sunday as Carlos Sainz lasted less than 10 laps of the 51-lap Azerbaijan Grand Prix – and Charles Leclerc then had to retire on lap 21 as well. The Spaniard, who was fourth at the time, ran away at Turn 4 on lap nine and reported a problem with the car, saying on his team radio: “Something went wrong.”

As a result, Sainz was forced to retire from the race and was later joined by his teammate who suffered engine trouble as smoke billowed from the rear of his car. Ferrari wrote on Twitter after Sainz’s retirement: “Unfortunately #Carlos55 had a problem and stopped.”

They later revealed that Sainz had suffered a hydraulic problem. Sainz’s DNF came after a poor start to the Baku race for the Prancing Horse. Pole sitter Leclerc handed over the lead to Red Bull‘s Sergio Perez at Turn 1 of the opening lap.

A virtual safety car was deployed following the Sainz issue which saw Leclerc, after a pit stop, temporarily drop back to third. The Monegasque regained the race lead after Max Verstappen’s first pit stop but was then forced to retire with smoke coming out of the airbox.

Sainz, meanwhile, had been on provisional pole in qualifying on Saturday but started P4 after a poor second lap in Q3. He admitted pushing the car too far as he squandered pole, explaining: “I felt like I was in contention for pole only after the last two races, especially before Monaco, I wasn’t that far ahead then and that’s what happens when you push to the limit. Sometimes you take P1 like I did in the first lap Q3, and sometimes you go over it. Obviously I overtook it in Q3.

The 27-year-old is having a disappointing season for Ferrari so far and entered fifth in the Drivers’ Championship this weekend, but 33 points behind team-mate Leclerc and 42 behind championship leader Verstappen.

A mix of mistakes and misfortunes weighed on the former McLaren driver, with this third retirement of the season. He finished second in the Monaco Grand Prix in the previous race before this year but could have won it on another day, insisting it was a “bittersweet” result.

He said: “It’s bittersweet, especially because I was leading the race before the pit stop. After the pit stop I had a terrible lap behind a run-in car. It cost me a few seconds of race time, which was enough for Checo to jump me.

“The race win was there, but unfortunately these things happen around Monaco. It was my turn to be a bit unlucky and then I tried everything to pass but here with these wide cars, it’s is tricky.”

Following his latest DNF, the gap between Sainz and title contenders Verstappen and Perez will only grow. Leclerc has started on pole in the last four races, including this one, but hasn’t won any of them.

Mick Schumacher explains Monaco Grand Prix crash that broke his car in half https://aaimonaco.org/mick-schumacher-explains-monaco-grand-prix-crash-that-broke-his-car-in-half/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 16:03:32 +0000 https://aaimonaco.org/mick-schumacher-explains-monaco-grand-prix-crash-that-broke-his-car-in-half/ Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher has revealed his “strange” crash at the Monaco Grand Prix happened after he inadvertently went off the rails slightly on wet spots on the drying track.

Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher has revealed his “strange” crash at the Monaco Grand Prix happened after he inadvertently went off the rails slightly on wet spots on the drying track.

Schumacher struggled again this season when his Monte Carlo run ended prematurely. The 23-year-old cut a barrier at the entrance to the pool section and luckily avoided serious injury after crashing into the wall.

The gearbox, which caused the race to be red flagged, broke in the back of his Haas machine after hitting the barrier and slipping through the Tecpro barrier on the exit. Schumacher’s chassis is currently being repaired at the Haas factory, but his Ferrari power unit is said to still be serviceable.

The German looked utterly stunned as to why he had suddenly lost control of the principality, while his engineer suggested he may have banged on the barrier just before the incident and snapped something. However, Schumacher confirmed that was not the case as he simply went wide at Tabac and cooled his right-hand tires in a wet puddle on the track.

“Basically I mean the whole track was pretty wet in places,” Schumacher said when asked by Motorsport.com what the data revealed. “And others were quite dry.

“We came out a bit wide in turn 12 [Tabac] which cooled the right side. And then going through the chicane, I was actually calm for the circumstances, for the conditions, that there were.

“And I just misplaced it a bit, and I was basically 10 centimeters on the wet zone, which then triggers a double slip in this case, because we have so much power. And that kind of thing just threw the car in a U-turn, I try to correct it, and it goes into the wall.

Mick Schumacher escaped the wreckage unscathed after the horror crash in Monaco

It was Schumacher’s second major collision of the season after smashing his car in Saudi Arabia, with his Haas breaking in two again in Monte Carlo. He has been heavily criticized this season, but he insisted the incident in Monaco came as a surprise.

“No, it came out of nowhere,” he said. “And I’ve talked to other people. And, you know, most of the feedback I got said it looked really weird. anything broke, actually. But the data suggests than not, so it looks like a wetland.

“It was really strange, because the accident itself was not difficult at all. Seeing it split in two again is quite unfortunate, because obviously it does a lot of damage in this case.

While his father Michael won a record seven world titles during his F1 career, Schumacher is yet to score a point since entering the sport in 2021 – but he did claim overall victory in the his last season in Formula 3 (2018) and Formula 2 (2019). ). The German was unable to start the race in Saudi Arabia in March after a similar crash in qualifying, but Schumacher insists he must take risks to get the desired results.

Mick Schumacher hopes for better times at Azerbaijan Grand Prix this weekend

Do you think Mick Schumacher will score points with Haas this season? Let us know in the “Comments” section.

“Especially in midfield this year, it’s so tight, so it’s just a matter of being 10 centimeters out of place, and things go very wrong,” Schumacher added. “I mean, nobody thought about the pavement beforehand in Jeddah for example, it’s a trigger for these accidents. In Monaco, the conditions were obviously quite difficult.

“So yeah, there’s obviously the risk and reward assessment. And obviously we’re trying to be in the points, and so we have to take risks. But yeah, that’s definitely something where I just have to learn a little more and understand a little more.

“I guess you as a driver always try to take risks and reap the rewards. I mean the midfield is so tight that if you really don’t take the risk you end up anyway P15 or less. And that’s not where we want to be, we want to be in the top 10.

“So you have to take some risk. And it’s up to me to decide and find the right margin. But there are other circumstances that also play a role in this. It is therefore simply a matter of dialing the number.

The 22-race F1 2022 campaign continues with the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku on June 12.
