  • The pair is coming together after a gap of two years, as they had participated in the 2019 Race Of Champions.
  • Sebastian Vettel has participated and won Nations Cup alongside Mick's dad, Michael Schumacher in past.

In a spectacular development from the world of motorsports, it has been confirmed that the duo of Sebastian Vettel and Mick Schumacher are set to re-unite once again. The two F1 drivers are set to represent Team Germany in Race Of Champions 2022 scheduled to take place in Sweden on February 5-6 next year.

It must be noted that the pair is coming together after a gap of two years, as they had participated in the 2019 Race Of Champions (in Mexico) together and had an impressive outing where they reached the finale of the event.

Reflecting on the decision to return to ROC, Sebastian Vettel said, "I’m really looking forward to being back competing in the Race Of Champions again and to represent Germany together with Mick. At ROC Mexico, we came 2nd in the ROC Nations Cup, so our aim is to do one better in Sweden."

We aim to win a trophy again: Schumacher

Mick Schumacher also expressed his excitement on the prospect of returning to the circuit alongside the experienced Sebastian Vettel. He said, "Representing Germany together with Sebastian will for sure be big fun, and obviously we aim to win a trophy again. We have to continue the success of Team Germany, and fight for victory, and I am sure we both will take that very seriously."

One of the main reasons behind so much buzz around this pairing is the fact that Sebastian Vettel has participated and won Nations Cup alongside Mick's dad, Michael Schumacher in past. The two German drivers clinched victories in the event in six back-to-back editions from 2007 to 2012.

"The Nations Cup – a team-based event – takes place on February 5, 2022, while the Race Of Champions itself takes place the following day. The races will be held on a snow and ice-based circuit in Swedish resort Pite Havsbad, using a variety of cars," Formula One stated on their official website.
