Mick Schumacher has described reaching Formula 1 as his destiny, as he aims to learn from his legendary father’s career.
The son of Michael Schumacher, the sport’s most successful-ever driver, is racing in F2 for the first time in 2019 and already made his F1 Testing debut in the last month, running for Ferrari and Alfa Romeo in Bahrain.
“I’m not really comparing myself to anyone now in F1, obviously it’s to my dad who I compare myself to, To see what we did, which steps he took and what he did different to others, and also see what positives I can take from that.”
Schumacher has enjoyed a breakthrough 12 months on the single-seater ladder. He won the European F3 title after a late-season surge last year, the success which was followed by securing an F2 drive with the same Prema team. He was also signed to Ferrari’s driver academy.
Mick Schumacher believes to get to Formula 1, ‘it is very important to do one step after the other.’
