Mick's Major Milestones

In 1999, Mick was born in Vufflens-le-Château in Switzerland to Michael and Corinna. He's the youngest of two, with sister Gina having been born in 1997. At the time of Mick's birth, his dad, Michael was a two-time Formula One World Champion, while Uncle Ralf was also in Formula One with Williams. Mick was named after 500cc motorcycle World Champion Mick Doohan.
The motorsport journey begins, and Mick races under his mother’s maiden name ‘Betsch’ as he gets to grips with Karting.
Having come through the Formula ranks, Mick was now in his second season in F3. He dominates the second half of the year to claim his first title in motorsport. Eight wins, including five consecutively, are enough to take the crown by nearly 60 points from his nearest competitor..
In 2020, Mick flourishes in his second Formula 2 season and claims the title at the final round thanks to a season that includes two wins, 10 podiums and two fastest laps. Ahead of the final round of the season, he was signed by Haas to race in Formula 1 from 2021.

He also undertakes his first F1 FP1 session with his future Team at the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
Racing under the number 47, Mick’s first season in Formula 1 is full of learning from the back of the grid, but he shows his talent with a few impressive qualifying performances. His first points (P8) come a season later at Silverstone. A week later he finishes the Austrian Grand Prix in P6.
Mick signs with the Team as Reserve Driver, undertaking vital sim and feedback work. At the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed, he drives his father, Michael’s Mercedes W02 from the 2011 Formula 1 season up the famous Goodwood hill.

His first run in our W14 challenger comes at a Pirelli tyre test in Spain.

Mick's Helmet

The helmet is a crucial safety feature for a Formula One driver. But it’s also an important way to express themselves in the design and colours they choose – making them stand out from the rest of the grid and be instantly recognisable to the fans.

Mick's Favourite Track

Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps


"Spa is my favourite track! Every time I go back there I’m reminded just how special it is.

It’s definitely one of the most challenging tracks to drive. It’s super long and there’s lots of undulation. It’s got a lot of variety in terms of the corners, both low, medium, and high-speed. The Belgian Grand Prix weekend is one of the most special we have on the calendar. I look forward to going back there every year.

It’s also a circuit that reminds me of the difficult times. We always keep everyone, especially Anthoine (Hubert), in our hearts when we go there."
