Saturday at Silverstone was one to forget for Haas. In fact, the American team on the English circuit was unable to overcome the initial cut in Q1 with any of its cars. Mick Schumacher he finished the session in 19th place and his teammate Kevin Magnussen did little better, barely picking up 17th on the grid. A mockery for the Kannapolis team who hoped to be able to take advantage of the difficult weather conditions that affected today’s session in a much more profitable way. However, Schumacher’s day deserves a more specific analysis. The German driver – still short of points in his career – was in fact the victim of yet another unfortunate circumstance, certainly not the first of his season.
The 2020 F2 champion descended on the track behind the wheel of an extremely understeer car, so much so that he was forced to drive even with the steering wheel tilted slightly to the left straight, so as to be able to make his VF-22 go straight. An extremely problematic condition – reminiscent of the one experienced in 2017 in Hungary, at the wheel of a Ferrari, by his friend Sebastian Vettel – which forced his son of art to work enormously to keep the car on the road. At the end of qualifying, speaking on German TV Sky DeutschlandSchumacher hoped that a solution to this problem could be found in view of tomorrow’s race: “The steering was quite leaning to the left – Haas # 47 explained – we hope it will be possible to repair it for tomorrow, otherwise it will probably be a difficult race “.
