Mick Schumacher: I always considered pressure an advantageOctober 18, 2019
The attention of the press and fans is riveted to Mick Schumacher. The son of a seven-time world champion said that at the very beginning of his career he did not speak under his own name so that they would not pay attention to his results and allow him to progress smoothly.
Mick Schumacher: “I always considered pressure an advantage, because it was part of my career from the very first races in the“ formula ”championships, when the name Schumacher first appeared on my car. Prior to this, I spoke under the name of Bech’s mother or simply the Younger. This was done in order to slightly reduce attention to me and give time to progress. However, at some point, we realized that it was time to put my real name on the car.
I would not say that thanks to another surname I got more freedom, rather it was done in order to remain unnoticed longer, so that I could study and progress at a pace that was comfortable for me. I believe that I really benefited, because I was not riveted to the attention of the press, and I could completely concentrate on the races. It really helped me become what I am now. ”
At the same time, Mick said that his father did not help him with advice at the beginning of his career: “He did not give me any advice, he did not teach anything. He wanted me to make my mistakes, because it is from your mistakes that you learn best – he perfectly understood this. I was mistaken, made conclusions, progressed and became what I am. I believe that I succeeded. “
Mick Schumacher said that he tries not to read about himself in the press and on the Internet: “I usually do not look for notes about myself, although sometimes I want to read what they write about me, but I restrain myself because I do not want to distract me.”
