Sebastian Vettel advises Mick Schumacher, the son of his idol Michael, a lot.
And the former Ferrari driver assures that he would not deter Mick Schumacher from joining the Scuderia if the opportunity arose in the years to come, even if the four-time world champion had not seen the blow of his ousting come early 2020 (in favor of Carlos Sainz for 2021 and after).
The young German is anyway a member of the Ferrari Academy for young drivers and he could be offered such a seat one day… unless he is released for lack of talent deemed sufficient.
« Absoutely, » replies Vettel when asked if he would advise Mick Schumacher to join Ferrari.
« Even though I didn’t have THE big success there, I still had some good years. And this brand will always be special to me and to everyone. »
« Anyway, I wouldn’t advise him against it because of the few things that didn’t work out so well for me. »
« People tend to see the glass as half empty in memories. I prefer to see it as half full and the positive outweighs the negative. »
« Complaining too much is out of place because, all things considered, we Formula 1 drivers are all doing very well. »
