Mick Schumacher's Formula 1 team boss hopes that the first world championship points will have a liberating effect on the Haas driver.

Silverstone - "Hopefully at least some of the pressure will go away now and he can drive more freely," said Haas race director Günther Steiner after the German's eighth place at the spectacular Grand Prix in Silverstone.

With a brilliant performance, Schumacher stormed forward from the penultimate place.

"It's good for Mick.

We almost couldn't believe what happened there," said Steiner.

In the first few months of this season, the Italian publicly counted the son of record world champion Michael Schumacher because of a number of accidents and driving errors.

"I told him: keep calm, keep going and don't worry about those out there," Steiner said.

For the clammy Haas team, Schumacher's success "burst a knot," said the 57-year-old.

Now the expectations of the 23-year-old should not be too high.

"You shouldn't think that he always has to score points now," Steiner told British TV broadcaster Sky.
