According to Alpine team principal Bruno Famin, Mick Schumacher is being considered for a Formula 1 drive with Alpine. This development comes in the wake of a contentious incident at the Monaco Grand Prix, where Esteban Ocon's aggressive manoeuvre led to a collision with teammate Pierre Gasly, leaving the team furious. 

As a result, Famin is reportedly contemplating dropping Ocon from the lineup for the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix. Schumacher, already a representative of Alpine in the World Endurance Championship, has emerged as a potential replacement in this unfolding scenario.

Speaking with Sky Germany Famin said, “Everything is open for 2025, everyone talks to everyone. It would be a mistake not to have Mick on the list. I'm very happy with Mick, he's super-fast.”

“But in the WEC that's not the main thing, you have to drive at a consistently high level and have a good team spirit. I'm very impressed with him because he's got it from the first. He has adapted his attitude to the long-distance races on the day. He has a very good relationship with his teammates.”

“My dream is to drive in Formula 1”, says Mick Schumacher

Further, Mick Schumacher spoke about the incident and said that he has a dream to drive in Formula 1. He said, "My goal and my dream is to drive in Formula 1. It has always been that way and it will always remain that way.”

“That's why we have to make sure that the dominoes now fall in my direction and hopefully I'll end up with a seat. What I can do is simply give my best performance in the WEC and also in Formula 1 and continue to perform well for the team as a reserve driver and continue to have discussions”, he further added. 

Notably, Mick Schumacher was dropped by Guenther Steiner, then the team principal of Haas, who was critical of his numerous crashes. Since the beginning of last year, Schumacher, son of the legendary Michael Schumacher, has served as a reserve driver for Mercedes. However, due to the recent turmoil at Alpine, an unexpected opportunity has emerged, potentially paving the way for his return to the F1 grid in 2025.
