Seven time Formula One World Championship winner Michael Schumacher can lay at ease while recovering from his accident as his son Mick has continued to prove his worth in the realm of racing. Can Mick Schumacher be as successful as his father and reach the Formula One championships in the future?
Mick Schumacher finished 10th at the Formula 4 season this year for the Dutch team, Van Amersfoort Racing,?Daily Mail reported. ?The season was fun,? Mick told Sport 1. ?We?ll have to see about next year.?
Mick snagged the Rookie of the Meeting trophy in Germany back in April after he won in the Oschersleben track, AFP reported. Mick then went on to bank third place in the Formula 4 race in September. Not everything went smoothly however?as the fifth spot was Micks’ best finish position after three races at Hockenheim this month, the report said.
?He?s made huge strides,? said the Dutch team?s head Frits?Van Amersfoort. ?Mick was lucky with his first win; then things went a bit downhill, but he found his feet and his performances improved. Now we see that Mick is a strong player in the field.?
Mick had a modest performance considering he encountered an accident back in June this year. A fellow racer rammed the rear?of his car at the Red Bull Ring resulting to Mick?s right hand being fractured, Express reported. Mick, however, didn?t seem bothered too much with the injury. ?I?m okay. It?s a shame my race had to end so early,? he said.
Despite Mick being far away from being the overall champion in the Formula 4 season, a bright future in motorsport awaits Michael?s son. ?He is well-known and has a big name? which will always have a significance in Germany,? ADAC motorsport division president Herman Tomcyzk said per AFP.
