Hockenheim - Mick Schumacher is tipped to carry the famous surname into Formula One as the newly-crowned European Formula Three champion finished the season with his 14th podium placing on Sunday.
The 19-year-old son of stricken Formula One legend Michael Schumacher took second in the final race of the 2018 season at Germany's Hockenheim circuit.
Having already been confirmed European F3 champion on Saturday, Schumacher finished the last race of 2018 behind his Prema team-mate Robert Shwartzman for his 14th podium place in the 30-race season, with seven wins.
"Mick has the racing genes of Michael," said Gerhard Berger, boss of the German Touring Car championship.
"If he can continue to deliver performances like these, then he will find his way into Formula One."
