But of course Schumacher wants the title - also to show his critics that he didn't get into Formula 1 just because of the name. There is no better recommendation for Formula 1 than a title in Formula 2.

Four Formula 2 races are now taking place in Bahrain. You will decide the championship. Mick Schumacher is 22 points ahead of Callum Ilott - also a Ferrari junior - in the title fight. Above all, however, he has a tailwind from Sochi, where he was able to score good points with a win and third place.

Alone: ​​Sochi was already two months ago. "I wouldn't have said no to it if it had gone straight to Russia," he says at the RTL donation marathon. “But this break is the same for everyone: none of us has been able to drive a Formula 2 racing car in this period since September 27th. I've worked intensively with my Prema racing team and I'm well prepared for Bahrain. I feel ready for my job. "

98 points are still to be gained in the last four races. In other words: Nine drivers still have title chances.

Last year, Bahrain was mixed for Mick Schumacher. He remembers: “I drove my first Formula 2 race there, finished eighth, so I was able to start the sprint from pole position. I couldn't keep my place because I had to pay hardship in terms of tire management. With the new 18-inch wheels we've been using since 2020, it's easier to keep the rollers alive. "
