The 23-year-old German has increased his points account to 12 points, he is in 15th place in the World Cup. only three points behind Sebastian Vettel, four behind Pierre Gasly and five behind Daniel Ricciardo.

20-time GP winner Mika Häkkinen watched the Formula 1 action at the Red Bull Ring and said: «I am very happy that Mick has shown such a strong race again. He finished two places ahead of his experienced Haas teammate Kevin Magnussen.”

“Mick has been under scrutiny for years because he is the son of Michael Schumacher. With that position under the magnifying glass, there is a lot of pressure. But even when there was criticism after the driving mistakes in the first half of the season, Mick remained calm – I find his composure and maturity remarkable for such a young man.
