Schu­macher’s son Mick Ju­nior wins Eu­ro­pean F3 ti­tle

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Ber­lin, Ger­many - Mick Schu­macher, the teenage son of stricken For­mula One leg­end Michael Schu­macher, was crowned 2018 For­mula Three Eu­ro­pean win­ner on Satur­day.

With one race left this sea­son, the 19 year old Schu- macher fin­ished sec­ond in Satur­day's sec­ond race at Hock­en­heim to leave him with an unas­sail­able lead in the driv­ers' cham­pi­onship.

His first F3 ti­tle means Schu­macher has qual­i­fied for a FIA 'su­per li­cence', a pre­req­ui­site for the jump to For­mula One, and fol­lows on from his fa­ther, who won the Ger­man F3 cham­pi­onships 28 years ago. This sea­son, he has been a rev­e­la­tion for Prema Theodore Rac­ing, with spec­u­la­tion that he will race in For­mula Two next sea­son - or step up to For­mula One.
