Schumacher’s son wins F3 European title
Mick Schumacher, the teenage son of stricken Formula One legend Michael Schumacher, was crowned 2018 Formula Three European champion yesterday to claim the first key title of his career. With one race left this season, the 19-year-old Schumacher finished second in the day’s second race at Germany’s Hockenheim circuit to leave him with an unassailable lead in the drivers’ championship. “I am absolutely delighted,” Schumacher said. “What this team has achieved over the last year is unbelievable.” Juri Vips took the chequered flag, but all the attention was on Schumacher, who dominated the second half of the season after claiming five straight wins.
