15-Year-old son of Michael Schumacher, seven time Formula 1 world champion winner, is expected to make his debut as a professional racer this season at the ADAC Formula 4 Championship which will be held in Germany.
Schumacher will be racing with the Dutch racing team that helped propel on of Schumacher’s son, Max Verstappen, to prominence in last season’s Formula 3 that is Van Amersfoot Racing.
The ADAC Formula 4 Championship is set to kick off on April 25th to 26th by which time Schumacher’s son will be 16-years-old.
The ADAC Championship is a new car racing series in Germany designed for the Tatuus-Abarth cars. In addition to that it will see the cars run to the new F4 concept by FIA.
Schumacher has already completed in karting, something that he managed to do under the names Mick Betsch (Betsch is his mothers middle name) and Mick Junior so as to deflect any attention that might fall upon him.
Frits Van Amersfoort, the boss of the team, said that, "We have seen his skills in testing and we are looking forward to a successful season.
"In the last couple of years, it has become a tradition for us that we offer the runner-up from the German junior karting championship a test session in our simulator.
"This is handled by the DMSB, the German motorsport authority, and that is how we first got in touch with Mick Schumacher last autumn.
He spent a full day in the simulator at our headquarters in the Netherlands, then we witnessed him during a test session at Valencia and, eventually, we reached an agreement to compete together in this year's ADAC Formula 4 series."
