Schumacher went into the Hungarian Grand Prix without the car upgrades given to team-mate Kevin Magnussen, and the German's uncle Ralf has a theory as to why that was the case Mick Schumacher has faced criticism from many sides this season, though he might have expected to get a little more support from his own uncle.

KEVIN MAGNUSSEN secured points in an eighth-placed finish during the Austrian Grand Prix. Kevin Magnussen has admitted he was “praying to God” that his car would not “blow up” after picking up an issue at the Austrian Grand Prix. The Dane revealed he suffered an engine issue in the opening stages of the Grand Prix which left him nervous.
Kevin Magnussen finds it "a little bit surprising" that Haas remains so competitive given its lack of Formula 1 car updates this season after qualifying seventh in Austria. Unlike many of its midfield rivals, Haas is yet to bring a major upgrade package for its car to a race so far this season, and may not debut it until the end of this month in Hungary.
KEVIN MAGNUSSEN would like to see changes made to the F1 sprint race, one of the sport's most innovative concepts. The event is a shorter version of the main race with no mandatory pit stops. The results will form the grid for the main Grand Prix on Sunday.
Kevin Magnussen appeared a little stumped as to why he could not get out of Q1 in qualifying for the British Grand Prix, with him saying the car had been feeling good in the wet. A soaking Silverstone circuit made for some high drama and brilliant intrigue over the course of the hour, with the drivers showing off all of their skills to keep their cars out of the wall.
F1 drivers can "effortlessly" influence the FIA during grands prix, according to Haas' Kevin Magnussen. The Dane was ordered to pit during the recent Canadian GP after Esteban Ocon, who was following Magnussen in his Alpine, complained on the radio that a piece of the Haas' front wing could fly off and hit him in the head.
Schumacher is still yet to score his first points in Formula 1, nine races into his second season in the sport, but insists the fact he qualified sixth for the race in Montreal is evidence that he belongs Qualifying sixth for the Canadian Grand Prix was enough for Mick Schumacher to convince himself he is worth his place in Formula 1.
Mick Schumacher has opted to take the positives from his weekend at the Canadian Grand Prix, rather than focus on the obvious negative of the retirement from the race thanks to a power unit issue. The Haas driver achieved his best-ever qualifying in F1 at the weekend as he aced the wet conditions to stick his car on P6, alongside team-mate Kevin Magnussen in P5.
MONTREAL - Kevin Magnussen said the FIA's race directors and stewards are too easily influenced after his Canadian Grand Prix was ruined by what he called "a scratch" on his front wing. Magnussen went wheel to wheel with Lewis Hamilton on lap one and made light contact, which left a tiny bit of his front wing sticking out.
Mick Schumacher took the opportunity post qualifying in Canada to fight his corner and say that his impressive P6 finish for Sunday’s race proves that he is in Formula 1 for a reason. The young German is searching to get his first-ever championship points this weekend in F1 and has set himself up with a great chance of achieving that, with him starting on the third row alongside Kevin Magnussen.
Schumacher's future with Haas is said to be in doubt after several expensive crashes which have angered team boss Guenther Steiner, and other teams will likely not be too impressed either Mick Schumacher has been warned that he will appear "not sexy" to Formula 1 teams if he continues to crash his car and fail to pick up points.
Haas driver Mick Schumacher says he is looking to use the pressure on him to deliver results after another costly crash at the Monaco Grand Prix last time out. Schumacher is in his second year in Formula 1 this season and has a far more competitive car around him compared to his rookie year in 2021.
Kevin Magnussen has been impressed by the "nice change" at the Haas Formula 1 team between his two stints, following the squad's alterations to its technical set-up and bases. After Magnussen left Haas at the end of 2020, the team set up what was dubbed a 'Haas hub' in Maranello at Ferrari's headquarters, with more of the Italian team's personnel moving over to the US squad to form a department headed up by technical director Simone Resta.
Haas' move to a new facility at Maranello has helped the team to speed up in Formula 1. Throughout 2021, the American team did close to no car development on the uncompetitive car it fielded, whilst working exclusively on the 2022 rules and setting up a new headquarters on the grounds of Ferrari's Italian base.
Conor McGregor predicted 'something special' at the Monaco Grand Prix for Haas but his tip couldn't have been more wrong as neither driver was able to finish the race The curse of Conor McGregor struck at the Monaco Grand Prix as fans pointed blame towards the UFC legend after his prediction for the race in Monte Carlo couldn't have been more wrong.
Haas racer Kevin Magnussen believes the different driving challenge of the 2022 Formula 1 cars means "it's going to feel like the track has become smaller" in Monaco. The wholesale changes to F1's technical rules for the 2022 season returned the championship to a ground-effect-led aerodynamic formula, which means the machines are more prone to understeer and that has led the sensation of driving becoming more cumbersome in slow corners.
MONTE CARLO -- Kevin Magnussen now agrees he could have given Lewis Hamilton more space to avoid their collision at the start of the Spanish Grand Prix. Magnussen and Hamilton collided at Turn 4 on the opening lap of the race, with the contact giving both drivers' cars a puncture.
Kevin Magnussen has admitted to changing his mind over who was to blame for his lap one clash with Lewis Hamilton at Formula 1’s Spanish Grand Prix. The Dane and his Mercedes rival came together at Turn 4 on the opening lap at Barcelona last weekend as he tried an overtaking move around the outside.
