Racing – Formula 1: Mick Schumacher Wins European Title
Mick Schumacher, the child of seven-time Formula 1 top racer on the planet Michael, won the Formula 3 European title with a race still left in the championship.
The 19-year-old completed 2nd in race two of the season finale in Hockenheim, Germany, to set up an unassailable lead in the drivers’ standings.
Now that Mick Schumacher is Euro F3 champion, I am fervently hoping that he raises the budget to move up to the next level in 2019.

Prema driver Schumacher has now won 8 races this season and held a 49-point advantage coming into the last round.
Schumacher, who neglected to score in the opening race in Hockenheim following a first-lap impact, just expected to abstain from dropping 15 to title equal Dan Ticktum in race two.
I am so very grateful for being able to experience this, to live my dream and to have such a strong team behind and around me – that title is because of and for them! #WhatATeam @prema_team @theodoreracing1 pic.twitter.com/zwYGmaNi31

Ticktum’s Motopark partner Juri Vips won race two from pole position, and with Ticktum getting back home in 7th, Schumacher’s second-put complete was sufficient to seal title triumph.
Schumacher’s title comes a year after he set 12th in general in his presentation F3 season.
