Toro Rosso not considering Mick Schumacher for 2019 seat - Marko

Written by  Sep 12, 2018

Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko has ruled out Mick Schumacher as a target for Toro Rosso in 2019.

The son of seven-time world champion Michael thrust himself into European Formula 3 title contention with a trio of victories this past weekend at the Nurburgring, leaving the 19-year-old just three points behind leader Dan Ticktum.

Needing just a top three finish in this year's championship to secure enough points for a superlicence, the possibility of a third Schumacher racing in F1 suddenly appears a lot more likely with Motorsport Italy claiming he was now on Red Bull's radar.

“He is not on our list and we have no contact at all with him,” Marko responded via Auto Bild.

It is more than likely that joining the Austrian company stable wouldn't be an option for Mick, who would follow his father's links to Ferrari and Mercedes.

Currently, the latter appearing his closest association having completed a demonstration run in a DTM car last weekend but his Prema F3 team have links to the Scuderia and the German has been seen in the Italian team garage

There was also a report last week, before his Nurburgring exploits, Schumacher was eyeing a move to F2 with ART Grand Prix, which would be the final step before a much-anticipated career in F1.

As for Toro Rosso, the Daniil Kvyat return rumour continues but Christian Horner ruled out Esteban Ocon, despite admitting there would be "obvious" interest if the Frenchman was already tied to Mercedes.
