Schumacher angry at team decisions: Mick Schumacher accuses his team in Spielberg of not helping him. In the sprint race in Austria, the German is stuck behind teammate Kevin Magnussen, although he is convinced that he is the faster. That’s exactly what Schumacher accuses the team of in an angry Sky interview afterwards. “I don’t know why the team didn’t feel like it. I think we lost points as a result.”
Short, compact, clear
Haas boss has a completely different opinion: Team boss Günther Steiner has no understanding for these statements and reacts with clear words. “We kept a close eye on it,” says the Austrian, “if Mick had been faster, we would have seen it. We did the right thing.” Schumacher had the speed advantage “only because of the DRS” in Magnussen’s slipstream.
Praise for Schumacher because of the duel with the superstar: Steiner also praised Schumacher, especially because of his duel with Lewis Hamilton on the track. “He did a fantastic job, it couldn’t have been done better. Being able to fight with Lewis Hamilton for so long is remarkable,” said Steiner.
