Sebastian Vettel revealed that he was the cheerleader of Mick Schumacher at the climax of the F1 British Grand Prix.
Sebastian Vettel, also from Germany, has played a role as Mick Schumacher’s mentor, but Schumacher has not been able to score points until the F1 British Grand Prix, and he has been the son of seven F1 World Champions so far. There was more pressure than that.
However, Mick Schumacher finished in 8th place at Silverstone Circuit and finally got his first F1 point in the 32nd race. At the end of the race, he fought a fierce battle with the active F1 World Champion who suffered damage to the car for 7th place.
Sebastian Vettel, who finished in 9th place behind him, watched the fight on the ringside seat and joined many spectators who were cheering for Mick Schumacher. British fans cast Verstappen in a villainous role because of his rivalry with home hero Lewis Hamilton.
“I was very happy for him,” Sebastian Vettel told ESPN about Mick Schumacher’s first win.
“I was watching what happened, seeing him fill the gap, and actually yelling’Go! Mick! Go!’ In the car.”
Sebastian Vettel and Mick Schumacher are often together in the paddock, and they were interviewed in the immediate vicinity after the F1 British Grand Prix race.
“I think it’s been a while since he deserved the result, and it’s great to get it,” said Sebastian Vettel, four-time F1 World Champion on his 35th birthday.
Ironically, Mick Schumacher’s best opportunity to score points was lost in a crash at the end of the race with Sebastian Vettel at the Miami Grand Prix in May.
“I thought I might catch him in the end, but they (Schumacher and Verstappen) were too fast,” Sebastian Vettel added about the F1 British Grand Prix.
“It was really fun to see them aiming for it every time they entered turn 15.”
“I saw Verstappen and side-by-side. It was the same on the approach to Turn 6 and on the Wellington straight.”
