I don’t think Steiner ever wanted Schumacher. Regardless of what he says, I really do believe Schumacher came with the 1&1 sponsor deal. Probably rubbed him the wrong way.Confirmed. I think those early season crashes sealed his fate. It probably didn't matter how well he did after that; they were going to use that to get rid of him. Now they replace him with someone who already had his shot, and was booted for a reason. I will never understand the love for Nico. Tell me it is an upgrade....I just don't buy that. Very backwards looking.
Some people just don’t fit into certain cultures. Sometimes they do, and then the culture or expectations change. Take Gasly for instance. He is a top 10 driver, I believe. His time in the Red Bull stable has come. The Jr. team was doing him no favors at all, and the change of scenery is hopefully exactly what he needs.Getting money AND a formula 2 champ. How horrible.
Semantics most likely. To me it means the same role as a reserve driver…and some added publicity stuff since he is so popular. Commentary on the F1 channel, taking the old Red Bull cars out for events, stuff like that. Perez probably said he’s done with that stuff.They said third driver but not the reserve driver....do you get what that means?
