World champion 1997 Jacques Villeneuve believes that the son of the legendary Michael Schumacher, Mika will be difficult to cope with the psychological pressure on the way to F1.
17-year-old Mick continues his ascent in the hierarchy of Motorsport: after second places in the overall standings in the season-2016 in the German and Italian F4 he moved to European F3.
Many teams in F1 are already closely watching the son of the sevenfold world champion.
When a reporter on Sky Sports F1 asked the canadian, who fought with Schumacher-senior in the Big Prizes, what will Miku be a F1 driver, Jacques said, “This is crazy.
It’s a completely different age in contrast to that, in which I came to the race. In addition, social networking and marketing is also doing their job. It seems that these factors are more important than racing talent tenfold.
He will have a very hard time because his father is multiple world champion. And it was relatively recently – that moment has passed not much time.
This is a huge psychological burden. If he will be able to cope with this, then all doors will open before him. But you need to be able to catch the moment because the doors are not open: they can very quickly be closed.
If he really loves racing, he needs to work and realize that on your way will meet obstacles that must be overcome.
Fans and media will perceive it as an experienced racer, which it is not. That’s the whole point”.
