Mick Schumacher is also driving for the US racing team Haas in his second Formula 1 season.
As the Americans announced, the 22-year-old will receive a contract for the year 2022. Further details of the cooperation have not been announced.
Schumacher has been driving in the motorsport premier class since this year and has recommended himself for at least one more season in the defeated car, even without championship points.
Teammate of the son of record world champion Michael Schumacher remains the Russian Nikita Masepin.
»As part of the Formula 1 field, I am living my dream.
The first year with Haas is very exciting and instructive.
I am sure that I will be able to bring all of the experience I have gained into the coming year, «said Schumacher in a press release.
So far, Schumacher has always made significant gains in his second year, and he is now hoping for such an effect at Haas.
Schumacher, who belongs to Ferrari's junior academy, entered Formula 1 as the champion of the most important junior racing series Formula 2. His best result so far is a twelfth place in the Hungarian Grand Prix.
In his weak car he has little chance of good results so far and only drives at the bottom of the field.
After all, he regularly prevailed against his stable rival Masepin.
In the coming season, Haas should move forward against the background of a new set of rules, changed cars and an upper budget limit for all teams.
Haas is already working intensively on the development of the new car and has stopped working on the current vehicle.
Most racing teams do, however, and the new regulations are no guarantee of better results.
