Sebastian Vettel and Mick Schumacher's partnership is well known, and the British GP provided both drivers with important points for their respective teams. 

Mick Schumacher took a crucial P8 at Silverstone, taking his first ever points in the sport and helping Haas F1 jump Aston Martin in the standings, to the delight of many. 

Sebastian Vettel was one of the happiest to see Scuhmacher in the points, who spoke about his joy for the youngster in F1's post-race show:

"I was very happy for him. 

I saw what happened, and I saw that he was closing in the gap, and I was actually screaming inside the car, like: 'Go, Mick, Go, Mick, go get him!'

I'm very happy for him; it's been a long time that he deserves the result, and it's great to get it. I thought maybe I'd get him at the end, but they were too quick.

It was actually entertaining to see them going for it every time into Turn 15. It looked like [they] were side-by-side, also into Turn 6, down the Wellington straight… well done."

Haas's race weekend was a feel-good story, with the American team recovering from a bitterly disappointing qualifying to take their first double points finish since Germany 2019. 

The American squad has struggled to maximise the VF-22 in the majority of Grand Prix this season, but they will be pleased to finally end their points drought.

With three races upcoming before the summer break, Schumacher and Vettel could find themselves crossing swords as they fought for their respective teams in the constructors' battle.
