“Naughty Boy” Mick Schumacher's Post-Haas F1 Racing Finish Takes the Internet by Storm

The 2023 Race of Champions competition in Sweden featured Mick Schumacher as a competitor. In this year’s Race of Champions, Sebastian Vettel and Mick Schumacher represented Germany.

Though Schumacher battled valiantly to reach the final, Mattias Ekstrom, a rallycross driver, defeated him in the championship round to win his fourth Champion of Champions title. While at one place the ‘Naughty Boy’ was celebrating his outstanding efforts, Twitter F1 fans, on the other hand, took the internet by storm.

The major feature of the tournament was Mick Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel going head-to-head in the Sunday event’s semi-final round after Schumacher defeated Arrow McLaren IndyCar driver and hometown favorite Felix Rosenqvist to advance past the first preliminary round. The first heat featured a strong start from Schumacher and Vettel, but the four-time world champion made mistakes and veered off course.

He had to turn around and return to his original itinerary, which required him to waste a great deal of time finding the correct route, enabling Schumacher, driving the Super Lite vehicle, to win easily. Only three-tenths of a second separated Schumacher from the winner of the Polaris heat. The Super Lite vehicles, where Ekstrom held the advantage, had a larger differential. Although the Swedish rally driver deserves all the credit, despite having a burning gearbox, he still manages to drive brilliantly, win the race, and clinch the championship.

However, following the results, when both drivers were attempting to open champagne bottles while standing on the podiums, ROC Sweden posted a video with the following message, “We nearly got ourselves more bottle problems again, but @schumachermick saw Seb and Petter struggle and said: “Not today.”

The Haas management was swiftly surrounded by fans as the video surfaced on the internet. The comments area was inundated by fans.
