Mick Schumacher becomes reserve driver for Mercedes-AMG

Mick Schumacher is the new 2023 reserve driver at Mercedes .
IMHO. His name did the trick...

Nov 9, 2022:
"Bernie Ecclestone: ‘People were disappointed with Mick Schumacher’s performance’"
https://www.planetf1.com/news/bernie...r-performance/
Ecclestone was pessimistic:
"“I don’t think he is in,” Ecclestone said matter-of-factly of Schumacher’s 2023 prospects, as per RTL in Germany.
“People were disappointed with his performance – whether it was down to him or the team, we don’t know.
“But of course, it’s difficult to find someone who will put him in a winning team, because he is not in one of those at the moment.”
“Maybe he needs to forget F1 and focus on the other motorsport series. His name is his biggest burden, but he is trying to live up to it as best he can. And that’s what brings him all the problems. That’s why: Forget about it and win in another category.”"


Nov 15, 2022:
"Toto Wolff on Mick Schumacher future: The Schumacher family belongs to Mercedes"
https://www.planetf1.com/news/toto-w...ture-mercedes/
Wolff was optimistic:
"Wolff was asked about the rumours, telling RTL: “I don’t know what the status is with Mick and Haas.
“But I make no secret of the fact that the Schumacher family belongs to Mercedes and that we value Mick very much.”
The Mercedes motorsport boss, though, acknowledges that the priority needs to be getting Schumacher into a race seat.
“But first of all,” he continued, “it should be about Mick getting a regular cockpit.”"

Sure . But I think that Mick should try it as a 'Schuh-macher .

In Mick's German : Sicher . Ich muss es mal als Schuhmacher versuchen.

As you said the Schumacher name got him in there as reserve and how he does in the mandatory FP drives will see if any other teams show interest in him for '24.

It's funny, I watched a Stephen King film called Christine about a demon possessed car that when it was wrecked it rebuilt itself. At times Mick would have wished that would have been the case when it went wrong with the Haas.

Well…I’d like to see Mick do well in F1 & am pleased that his toe is still in the door.
Now he will get to drive a competitive car, I’d like to find out what he can do with it

Hehe.... Remember Christine's jealous character? If this wish would've become true then, soon enough Mick would have looked Guenther Steiner at as his best buddy!

Nightmares often are dressed in daydreams.

^ All b/c dad drove for Merc after the Ferrari hey days and three years out, but with a queer set up suited for another generation his only use was to tell them the Ferrari secrets and after the big crash going into the back of Vergne's car he was replaced by Hamilton.

Wolff is hoping the name will offset the nosedive in performance from Merc and if Mick's adaptable will be another possible should Hamilton leave.

I heard that Mercedes will use him in the 2023 W14 winter crash tests .
So , actually he will replace a dummy .

George Russell proved throughout the 2022 season that the learning curve to adapt to a different F1 car, a different team mate (a living F1 legend) and a different team & work environment, can be relatively brief / steep.

But Russell is a super talent.

Time will tell whether Schumacher is equally a quick and skilled learner.

A reserve driver doesn't need to be as skilled as the #1 and #2 drivers. But his feedback is usually deemed relevant. Schumacher will need to earn his stripes.
