Leaving behind the virtual edition of 2020 and the cancellation of 2021, next year the Race of Champions. One of the classic opening or closing events of the motorsport season, depending on the positioning from year to year in the calendar, will take place this time in the very interesting setting of northern Sweden, in Piteå, in what will be the first ever edition held on a background of snow and ice. The complete list of participants is being composed day by day, but a particularly significant official has arrived for what will concern the German ‘national’.
In fact, as happened in Mexico in 2019, Team Germany will be representing Mick Schumacher And Sebastian Vettel. The four-time world champion, in particular, is a regular at this event, in which he won the team competition seven times. The first six, from 2007 to 2012, with Mick’s father Michael Schumacher at his side. Vettel’s latest success dates back to 2017, paired with Pascal Wehrlein. The parterre of those who have already announced their presence in Sweden next 5-6 February is very respectable.
It’s really happening! We’re bringing back the boys for #ROCSweden.
Welcome back to 2019 Nations Cup finalists Sebastian Vettel and @SchumacherMick! 🇩🇪
