Sao Paulo is the penultimate stage of this Formula 1 season. Not all personal data of 2023 have been revealed yet. We are also talking about Mick Schumacher. His teammate causes a sensation.

Sao Paulo – Mick Schumacher still doesn’t know what his future holds ahead of Sunday’s Formula 1 race in Sao Paulo (19:00 / RTL and Sky). His Haas teammate Kevin Magnussen impressed with the first pole position of his career.

Coup from Denmark

Kevin Magnussen will not be forgotten this season. At first Haas brought him back, then the Dane had a surprisingly strong race. The glory of the crown. Magnussen was now first in qualifying and, taking advantage of the break after the accident, took the first pole position of his career, also the first for Haas. “I came back this year after a year off and it’s just been an incredible journey,” Magnussen said, calling his coup “unbelievable”. Team leader Gunter Steiner said proudly. “Kevin turned it around when we needed it. It was really strong.”

Look for Plan B

Mick Schumacher could not promote himself with the last qualifying place. But he also wants to be a regular Haas driver next season. However, the US racing team continues to play for time when it comes to drivers. So what would Plan B look like for the son of world record champion Michael Schumacher? According to “Auto, Motor und Sport”, the 23-year-old player would be a candidate for a substitute driver at Mercedes if Daniel Ricciardo decides to refuse to work with the “Silver Arrows”. The Australian is set to leave McLaren at the end of the season but is also seen as a potential emergency for his former team Red Bull. Schumacher can learn from Mercedes’ multiple world champion racing team and be available as a substitute driver for customer teams.

The crash of FTX

The crypto industry has long been touted with the premier class of motorsports. But the world of blockchain technology is in trouble. The FTX trading platform has now filed for bankruptcy. What does this have to do with Formula 1? FTX became a sponsor of Mercedes in 2021. The Silver Arrows reacted to the Sao Paulo Grand Prix crash and ended the partnership. The logos were also removed. FTX is suspected of, among other things, misappropriating customer funds, according to the Bahamas Securities Regulatory Authority, where the group’s international business is based.

Farewell, fury!

Mauro Forgieri was a Ferrari legend. Since the 1960s, as technical director of the Scuderia, the engineer has designed racing cars second to none. The result: 54 Grand Prix wins and eleven Formula 1 world titles. Forgieri died on Monday at the age of 87. The Formula 1 team is now commemorating him. The man, also known as Fury because of his personality, is honored with a sticker on the cars of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. It says “Ciao Furia” (goodbye, fury).
