Agreed. I think he's able to compete but I don't think he's potential title winner. Mercedes have two of them for the foreseeable future.Have to see a massive overall improvement from Schu junior for him to earn a seat at Mercedes on merit. To date he’s done nothing to suggest he has the ability to compete at the top level.
He's gone to Mercedes as a reserve/test driver. No shame in that, The Schumacher family and Mercedes organisation are obviously very close, and I expect this is as much a commercial decision as it is a racing one. The other question is, if not Mick, then who? It's not like there's a huge depth of talent coming through that absolutely deserve that third seat.
