Mick Schumacher earned his first career points in F1, with an impressive 8th place finish in the Silverstone British Grand Prix, after starting way down in 19th on the grid.

This was the first time since the 2019 German GP that both Haas drivers have managed to score points in an F1 race, with Kevin Magnussen finishing P10.

In an action packed British Grand Prix that saw a three car DNF at the first corner, Mick Schumacher took the second start from 16th place, on medium tires, and gradually worked his way through the order, pitting for White hard tires on lap 19, before stopping for softs on lap 39 when the safety car was deployed.

Starting 10th at the restart, Schumacher made gains during the final laps and battled fiercely and composed against Max Verstappen to finish eighth overall. 

Mick Schumacher Views On Points Finish

“We’re really happy. Coming back from P19, I said we have the speed to go forwards and we definitely showed it today. It’s great for the team, a double-finish in the points, so that’s obviously very helpful in the constructors. For me, I’m happy now to focus on what’s really important and that’s the racing and the driving.”

The maiden points finish for Schumacher came at the Silverstone track that saw his father 7- time World Champion Michael Schumacher win on three occasions.

And famously ending his championship hopes in 1999 after a break failure at Stowe corner had caused him to crash resulting in a broken leg.

Many F1 fans are praying for a successful career for Mick Schumacher, could this be the start of things to come for Schumacher and Haas?.
