Michael Schumacher: His son Mick soon aboard a Formula 1 tribute – Gala

Entertainment 18 August, 2017


On the 27th of August next, Mick Schumacher will drive the car with which his father won his first victory in Formula 1 at Spa-Francorchamps, 25 years earlier. A moving tribute in perspective.

Since the tragedy that struck his family in December 2013, the young Mick Schumacher is going forward. Like his mother and his sister, Corinna and Gina Maria, the young man clings to his dreams and working hard to hope one day the touch of the finger. While he was recently spotted at the side of its mother on their ranch in switzerland to celebrate the new world title won by his sister in Reining, the young man of 18 years is now moving forward to the long weekend that awaits at the end of the month of August. Already Formula 3 driver, the youngest in the family of Michael Schumacher has never hidden to want to walk in the footsteps of his father. On the 27th of August next, it will be his first in Formula 1.

It is on the occasion of the grand prix of belgium Spa-Francorchamps, one of the most spectacular of the season, that the young driver will be allowed to lead the queen of racing cars. A symbolic gesture. An hour before the start of the race, Mick will have the opportunity to drive the Benetton-Ford B194 from his father. 25 years ago, it was with this car that Michael Schumacher had won his first Grand Prix. The emotion is therefore likely to reach its climax in Sunday’s race, several of the pilots in the competition having grown up in the idolâtrant the Red Baron, some of them being even now close to his son. Mick and shall succeed to tame the 700 horses of the meteor, weighing just 500 kilos. A great exercise for the vice-Champion of ADAC F4 and F4 Italy who dreams from a young age to be able to one day compete in Formula 1.
