Schu­macher misses out on Ger­man F4 crown

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mick Schu­macher missed out on claim­ing the Ger­man F4 ti­tle at Hock­en­heim last week­end.

The 17-year-old son of seven-time F1 cham­pion Michael Schu­macher headed into the fi­nal round with a 39-point deficit to Aus­tralian Joey Maw­son.

Schu­macher’s week­end got off to a tough start as he was one of seven driv­ers ex­cluded af­ter qual­i­fy­ing for an is­sue with their on­board fire ex­tin­guisher.

He there­fore had to take part in the qual­i­fy­ing race and that led to a 22nd place start for the open­ing race. But de­spite surg­ing up to sixth it was not enough to keep his ti­tle hopes alive as Maw­son won the race.

Prema Pow­erteam driver Schu­macher still has the op­por­tu­nity to se­cure the Ital­ian F4 ti­tle at Monza at the end of the month. He trails Mar­cos Siebert by 25 points with 48 still up for grabs.
