Schumacher’s son Mick wins European F3 title

Mick Schumacher, the 19-year-old son of seven-times Formula One world champion Michael, won the European Formula Three title at Hockenheim with a race to spare.Second place in the day’s second race was enough to secure the German’s first junior championship with an unbeatable 347 points. Another second place in the last race of the season on Sunday (October 14) gave him a total of 365 points, 57 clear of Briton Dan Ticktum in second place.It also qualifies him to race in Formula One next season, although there are few vacant seats available and the next obvious step would be Formula Two.Previous winners of the series, which has evolved over the years, include four-times F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who drives for Mercedes.Schumacher’s father won the German F3 title in 1990, a year before his Formula One debut with the Jordan team and subsequent switch to Benetton.Mick Schumacher has secured eight wins in 12 races including five in a row with the Mercedes-powered Prema team.
