FORMULA 1 BOSS HOPES MICK SCHUMACHER JOINS F1

The son of the great Michael Schumacher would be a welcome addition to the league

F1 boss Chase Carey says he hopes Michael Schumacher’s son makes it to Formula 1. Mick Schumacher, 19, is in his second season of European F3. He is currently placed eighth overall, having won the most recent race at Spa.

Asked if it would be good if Schumacher makes it all the way to F1, Carey told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that he was hoping for such an outcome.

“It would be a great story, of course,” Carey said. “Michael Schumacher still plays a unique role in Formula 1 as a world champion, as he is and will remain an icon of our sport.

“But regardless of that, we want to try to make it easier for good young drivers to make the transition. And Mick in Formula 1 would be special, of course.

“It would touch the hearts of many fans in a very unique way,” Carey added.
