Two weeks after his near clash with Nikita Mazepin in Baku, Mick Schumacher was once again at odds with his Haas teammate following an aggressive maneuver by the Russian in the French Grand Prix.
Five laps into Sunday’s race at Paul Ricard, Mazepin, who was running last, caught up with Schumacher and lunged to the inside of the German driver at Turn 3, forcing the latter off the track on the entry into Turn 4.
Schumacher eventually recovered to finish well ahead of Mazepin, but the Haas charger was clearly unimpressed once again with his teammate’s antics.

“It doesn’t have to be [like that],” Schumacher told RTL after the race. “I think I have to talk to the team about it again. If that’s how it’s going to be in the end, then so be it.
“We do our thing, he does his. Most people can explain to themselves that it doesn’t have to be like that. At this level, I can’t quite understand it.”
