Mick Schumacher is set to compete a second year in the European Formula 3 Championship. The German made his debut in the series in 2017, finishing twelfth in the standings. The 18-year-old picked up one podium during the season.
Now, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that a 2018 contract with the same outfit will be agreed "in the next few days". One of Michael Schumacher's former engineers at Ferrari, Luca Baldisserri, is happy to be working with Mick.
"It was very emotional to work with Michael's son, and in many ways he reminds me of his father," he said. "A couple of times, I've even called him Michael on the radio."
Meanwhile, as the four year anniversary of his skiing crash passes, Michael's manager Sabine Kehm has explained why she is so coy about the seven-time world champion's health today: "Before the accident, he told me 'Don't call me to plan things, I would like to disappear. It was his secret wish. That's why I do not say anything now," she told L'Equipe.
