On 29 December 2013 Michael Schumacher, seven-time Formula One World Champion, suffered a traumatic brain injury in a skiing accident.
While fans at home in Germany and around the world continue to support Michael and celebrate his incredible contribution to the motorsports world, it’s his son Mick Schumacher who is actively carrying on his father’s legacy.
Following in the footsteps of the most successful driver in the history of Formula One is a tough challenge, yet Mick Schumacher is doing just that. Competing on the formula 2 circuit, and earning a place in the Ferrari driving Academy, Mick is making waves in the motorsports world.
To mark the 15th anniversary of his father’s 2004 title success, Mick Schumacher took part in a demonstration run at the track where Michael Schumacher historically captured four of his record 91 Formula One wins - Hockenheim.
Mick retraced his Dad’s footsteps and got behind the wheel of Michael’s race-winning car, in a poignant and emotional display.
Mick’s reaction to the experience underscores the significance of such a historic sporting moment. “I think it’s mega driving this car in Hockenheim. The F2004 was a fantastic car that took 15 wins and both championship titles in a season that can be seen as the culmination of a golden period.”
