According to several European sources, including the Bild newspaper, Nico Hulkenberg will sign his racing contract for 2023 on the dotted line on Tuesday.
Autoweek has learned an announcement is expected in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, ahead of this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend.
Mick Schumacher reportedly received bad news in Brazil last weekend, where his uncle - former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher - sounded resigned to the fate of his 23-year-old nephew.

"Mick has shown that there is potential," he said on Sky Germany. "But no matter what he did, the team and Gunther Steiner were never satisfied with him. The whole thing cannot be understood by normal standards. It has to be something personal.
"I don't think Gunther Steiner can handle the fact that Haas has someone else at the center. He's very, very lucky to be the one that's front and center.”
Ralf Schumacher, 47, continues: "You can't call it good personnel management. It's more about motivating your employees." (Mick) was under constant pressure not to make mistakes or he wouldn't be with Haas anymore. When you're under that much pressure you can't ride free anymore."
Mick Schumacher has been linked with a reserve seat at Alpine next year but he may prefer to embrace a potential alternative at Mercedes.
"I don't know how Mick and Haas are doing," said Toto Wolff after the Brazilian GP. "But I make no secret of the fact that the Schumacher family belongs to us and that we appreciate Mick very much."
