Mick Schumacher (Michael’s son) steps up to Formula 4

The son of seven-time Formula One world champion, Michael Schumacher, is signing with Italy's Prema Powerteam

Published: Updated:

Mick Schumacher, the son of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, has taken the next step in his motor racing career by signing with Italy’s Prema Powerteam for the coming Formula 4 season.

The team has entries in both the Italian and German Formula 4 championships in 2016, and said Friday it is yet to decide which one he will compete in.

While his new team Prema has close ties to the Ferrari Driver Academy, Schumacher will not be part of that program despite his father’s celebrated history with Ferrari.
