The explanation of Mick Schumacher lost in the Mercedes box (video)

German Mick Schumacher had great moments during Formula 1 ‘s run around Montreal’s Gilles Villeneuve circuit, where he achieved his best result in a qualifying session on Saturday, finishing sixth at the end of Q3.

On Sunday in the race he was fighting for seventh place in search of his first points in the top category, but a failure in his Haas F1 Team made him abandon with 50 laps to go.

In the middle of the hectic weekend of the Canadian GP, Mick Schumacher starred in a moment of confusion and anecdote when he surprised all of Mercedes by visiting the Brackley team in the pitlane. But he didn’t do it with his car, as sometimes happens when a driver stops at the wrong pit box, but he went on foot!

In a video published by Mercedes on its social networks, a Mick can be seen walking hurriedly through the German manufacturer’s team garage, passing behind Lewis Hamilton and Toto Wolff and asking for the exit.

In the comments of the Mercedes video on Instagram, Haas took it upon himself to clarify the situation, writing: “Normally we are at the end of the pitlane, but they changed the order this weekend. And that made things terribly confusing.”

The explanation is simple. In the Formula 1 circuits, the order of the pits is marked by the constructors’ world classification of the previous year, so Mercedes is usually first (Red Bull Racing second, Ferrari third, etc.) and Haas last.

However, on some tracks there is more advantage if your garage is at the end of the pitlane, and in that case the team that finished last the previous year is placed in the first box, and the winning team is placed at the end of the pitlane. That’s exactly what happened in Canada.

Beyond that curious moment, Mick Schumacher regretted leaving Montreal with no points in the locker.

“Of course it’s not a nice feeling, because we had the speed to fight for fifth place,” said Mick Schumacher after finishing the ninth round on the calendar.

“It’s always difficult to accept things like that. When you’re in the group that scores points, it’s even more difficult to have to park the car with a DNF.”

Despite the unsatisfactory result, Mick takes many positives away from Canada: “We’ve already shown that we have a car to score points with. We could have done it in Montreal. We know we have the speed. We’ve had some tough races. So it was good have a good classification and a good speed in the race”.

“We haven’t brought any updates and the car is basically the same as it was at the beginning of the season. However, we are getting good results. That’s positive, of course.”
