Dec.21 - Mick Schumacher racked up the highest repair bill for his team than any other driver on the 2021 grid.

That is the claim of several authoritative sources, including Kolner Express and Bild newspaper.

They report that detailed analyses have calculated Schumacher's repair bill for Haas this year at over EUR 4.2 million, marginally ahead of Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.

Rookie Mick's uncle Ralf Schumacher aimed fire at the sensational headline in Bild newspaper, which crowned the 22-year-old as F1's "crash world champion".

"That's the reason why I don't do anything for Bild," former F1 driver Ralf said, accusing the major German broadsheet of publishing "bad and badly researched reports".

Indeed, Mick's mentor Sebastian Vettel hailed Schumacher's first season in F1.

"He held up well in the worst car in the field," said the quadruple world champion.

"His main task was leaving his teammate Mazepin behind him, and he accomplished that with ease.

"Now I wish for him a better car that does justice to his talent in 2022," Vettel told the Swiss newspaper Blick.

    well, its stupid to count it like that, when for example hamilton caused damage on verstapens car, so that money should be counted on him, not on max, i would like to see corrected list, based on whos faults it was and if it was racing incident, then they should split the cost...

    • shroppyfly

      of course you could break the numbers down almost infinitely as you suggest but if you add up the damage to a team for both drivers , it looks a whole lot worse than individuals Haas 7.5M ouch...

    I can't believe that Lewis Hamilton is still sulking over his loss to Max verstappen I thought F1 was a man's sport can't imagine old racers acting like it. Come on Lulu pull yourself together man.

    Wait, wait, don't I remember horny and the doc claiming $3-4m damage to the kid's car in the 'stone fiasco? Throw in the write-off in Baku and.....well, you get the idea.

    This article is just as ridiculous as my sarcastic comment. I'm sure the teams turned over their repair costs to the Bilge for publication. C'mon.
