Vettel and Schumacher partner for 2022 Race of Champions
Schumacher will race for the second time at the Race of Champions event title ‘Snow and Ice’, racing in 2019 alongside Aston Martin driver Vettel for Team Germany.
In their previous partnership, the pair finished as runners up to Team Nordic when the event was held in Mexico.
Vettel previously raced successfully alongside Mick’s father, Michael, winning six titles from 2007 to 2012.
Eyeing a win after a maiden F1 season spent largely at the rear with Haas, Schumacher said: “We have to continue the success of Team Germany, and fight for victory, and I am sure we both will take that very seriously.
“The other teams, especially the Nordic ones, may have more ice-driving experience, but we will try to make up for that with our motivation and resilience over the days of the event.”
Valtteri Bottas will also compete, taking the total number of active F1 drivers on the roster to three, representing Team Finland alongside Mika Hakkinen.
“I’m really looking forward to being back competing in the Race of Champions again and to representing Germany together with Mick,” added Vettel.
“The competition will be very strong especially from the Nordic drivers who have a lot more experience than us driving on snow and ice.”
