Mick Schumacher Secured F1 Seat As A Replacement for…
In Germany, they hint that Nyck de Vries might not be the only factory rider ‘dismounted’ in the middle of the season. From there they point to Logan Sargeant as another possible sacrifice, in his case, in Williams, and with Mick Schumacher as a replacement.
It is true that Logan has not scored, although he has managed to pass once to Q2. But when the circuit suits the Williams, Alexander Albon is ahead and he has been the only point-scorer for the Grove team so far this year.
But in this step, more than the American’s performance, Toto Wolff’s interest in finding a way out for Mick Schumacher is appealed to, a ‘Plan B’ after Hulkenberg’s performances at Haas.
Toto knows that he cannot keep Mick in the ‘dry dock’ for two years at a time when the offspring of the great Michael should be growing, learning, and gaining experience. Especially if he harbors even the slightest interest so that Mick can be the driver accompanying the leader of Mercedes in the future, a role that George Russell must play sooner or later.

Wolff, it is said, could discuss them with James Vowles, who was his confidant at Mercedes until he decided to accept becoming Williams’ team principal. For now, Sargeant continues with his adaptation to Formula 1, but he needs results as soon as possible to put an end to the rumors.
In any case, it must be taken as a simple rumor, of the same caliber as the one that indicates a possible exchange of drivers between Ferrari and Mercedes, I give you Charles and you give me Lewis. Possibly Leclerc would gladly accept the barter, and perhaps Ferrari too… I don’t think Lewis, however, would accept it. The movements seem more like the desire to place Mick on the one hand and to ‘save’ Leclerc on the other.
