Mick Schumacher, already signed as a reserve driver for Mercedes this season, may even carry out the same position at McLaren, the British Formula One group introduced Wednesday.
“McLaren will probably be in a position to name on Mick Schumacher as a reserve driver throughout the 2023 F1 season as a part of our settlement with Mercedes,” the group tweeted.
The 23-year-old German, the son of seven-time Formula One champion Michael, was dropped by the Haas team at the end of 2022 after only two seasons in F1.
Mick Schumacher also cut ties with one of his father’s former teams, Ferrari, which trained him in their driver academy.
He joined Mercedes, the team where his father Michael ended his career, as a reserve driver. Mercedes also supplies its engines to the McLaren team.
The 2023 Formula 1 season starts on March 5 in Bahrain.
