Michael Schumacher's son, Mick, takes a big step towards F1, securing the place of Formula 2


Mick Schumacher took a big step towards F1 after confirming his place in Formula 2 next year.

The 19-year-old, who is the son of legendary F1 driver Michael Schumacher, has signed a contract with the Italian team Prema for 2019.

It's the last big series that Schumacher Jnr needs to impress before an F1 team can be prepared to bet on him.

British riders George Russell and Lando Norris have won points in Williams and McLaren respectively for next season after impressing in the F2 series.

Alexander Albon also won a race with Toro Rosso.

Schumacher Jnr's team, Prema, has 21-year-old Charles Leclerc as the former driver who will be at Ferrari next season.

"I'm really looking forward to my next season with Prema in the FIA ​​Formula One," said Schumacher Jnr.

"It's a logical step in my sporting career, in my opinion, because I want to further improve my technical experience and my driving skills."

Schumacher Jnr was inclined to go to the top of the sport after repeated successes in the junior categories and has Mercedes boss Toto Wolff as his admirer.

Schumacher is the most successful driver in F1 history

His father had a record of 91 races in F1, claiming seven world titles in the process.

Schumacher Jnr was on the same ski holiday where his father suffered an injury that changed his life five years ago.

Although there has never been any information made public about his condition, he is believed to be in his home in Switzerland, receiving constant care.
