Legendary Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher‘s son Mick Schumacher has secured a spot in Formula 1, making his debut in the top tier of motorsport in 2021 with the Haas F1 Team.

Schumacher — who currently leads the Formula 2 championship with 14 points and just one round to go — will be joining fellow current F2 racer Nikita Mazepin in the American-owned F1 team, the duo replacing outgoing drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean, who suffered a horrific accident during the Bahrain Grand Prix last weekend.

“I would like to thank Haas F1 Team, Scuderia Ferrari and the Ferrari Driver Academy for placing their trust in me. I also want to acknowledge and extend my love to my parents – I know that I owe them everything,” the young driver says. “I have always believed that I would realize my dream of Formula 1. A huge thank you must also go to all the great motorsport fans out there who have supported me throughout my career. I will give it my all, as I always do, and I look forward to going on this journey together with Haas F1 and them.”

“I’m very pleased that we’re able to confirm Mick Schumacher in our driver line-up for next season and I look forward to welcoming him into the team,” added Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner. “I firmly believe he’s earned the opportunity to graduate into Formula 1 based on his performances. We have an opportunity ahead of us, as a team, to evaluate and nurture a new driver given our familiarity with our race package heading into 2021.”
