Endurance: “I have to discover cars with a roof and windshield wipers, until now I had always driven with my helmet in the wind”, presents Mick Schumacher

The German Mick Schumacher (25 years old; 44 Grands Prix in Formula 1) will be one of the drivers of the Alpine Hypercar in the WEC this year. During the presentation of the team, in comments reported by La Derniere Heure, he confided his impatience to discover a new world: “It's been a long time since I was a rookie,” he smiles. I certainly have a little experience in F1 which I hope to be able to share with the team, particularly in terms of managing the hybrid system and energy recovery. But I need to learn about endurance and cars with a roof and windshield wipers. Until now, since I started in karts around twenty years ago, I had always ridden with my helmet in the wind.”

And he added, impatient to share the No. 36 car (he who will keep one foot in Formula 1, as a Mercedes reserve): “I have never had so many teammates. They know endurance (the French Nicolas Lapierre and Mathieu Vaxivière) and have a lot to teach me. Above all, I will have to get used to traffic management with the GT3s. Also for night driving. I'm really looking forward to starting in Qatar, but especially at Le Mans where I've never been. I wanted and needed to race again. I missed competing last year. And then it became a very nice championship, with a lot of manufacturers and competition.”
