F1 hopeful Mick Schumacher has a Super License problem
Michael Schumacher’s son needs a top-10 2020 season in F2 to even be considered for Formula 1 ride in 2021
Mick Schumacher started this season with 50 Super License points — 10 more than the required 40 points over three seasons needed to be eligible for Formula 1.
However, 20 of his points — gained for finishing second in German Formula 4 and Italian F4 in 2016 — will no longer be valid in 2020, as points expire after three seasons. Mick scored no points in his first year in European Formula 3, so he will have only the 30 he collected when he won the Formula 3 European title in 2018.
To get the other 10 needed, he must finish sixth in the Formula 2 Championship. At the moment, with just one event (two rounds) remaining, he is 12th with no chance to make it all the way to sixth this season.
This means he will need to stay in Formula 2 another year, with the same target of finishing in the top 10 to be F1 eligible for 2021.
