Schu’s ‘win for dad’


Emotion coursed through the Hungarorin­g paddock as Mick Schumacher, his overalls emblazoned with a ‘‘Keep Fighting Michael’’ message in honour of his father, grasped his maiden victory in Formula Two. So much about the 20-year-old is redolent of his seventime world champion father: the striking red overalls, the pronounced jawline, the clenched fist of celebratio­n. Both his mother, Corinna, and his manager, Sabine Kehm, were on the pit wall to cherish a moment of grace amid the horror of Michael’s 51⁄2-year battle with an irreparabl­e brain injury. It was a win to confirm, at last, the creation of a racing dynasty.
