    Michael Schumacher's 15-year-old son is to race in Formula 4, a series for promising, young drivers

    Mick Schumacher, second in the German kart championship last season, will drive for Van Amersfoort Racing.

    "We have watched his skills in test driving and are looking forward to a successful season," said the Dutch team's owner, Frits van Amersfoort.

    Michael Schumacher is continuing his rehabilitation following a serious skiing accident in December 2013.

    The German, who spent nine months in hospital after suffering life-threatening head injuries, is the most successful driver in Formula 1 history with seven titles between 1994 and 2004.

    His son begins his Formula 4 career in Germany on 25 April.

    Let's hope the press takes it easy on him. Don't needle him for questions about his father's condition. Just let the young man race.

    Great to see,
    Hopefully he has lots of success and another Schumacher back at the top !!
     
  4. The most important thing for him now is to have the life of every driver in the F4 paddock. But it is not easy when your surname is (officially) now Schumacher and your father is a legend.
