Son of seven-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher, Mick Schumacher has won his first career title after he emerged victorious at the Formula 3 European championship held in Hockenheim, Germany.
The 19-year-old finished second in race two of the season finale to establish an unassailable lead in the drivers’ standings. He also finished second again for his 14th podium of the season.
Schumacher held a 49-point advantage going into the final round in Germany and only needed to avoid dropping 15 points to title rival Dan Ticktum in race two.
However, Ticktum finished seventh in the race that was won by his Motopark team-mate Juri Vips which made sure Schumacher’s second-place finish was enough to seal championship victory.
Mick currently drives for Mercedes same as his father did.
