HOCKENHEIM – Mick Schumacher wowed fans at Hockenheim on Saturday by driving the Ferrari in which his father Michael won his record seventh Formula One title in 2004.
The 20-year-old German is currently racing in Formula 2 and last year won the Formula 3 European Championship at Hockenheim. He has been widely tipped to step up to F1 in the coming years.
He drove the F2004 ahead of qualifying for the German Grand Prix - which could be the last F1 race in the country.
Michael Schumacher won four times at Hockenheim in F1 - in 1995 with Benetton and in 2002, 2004 and 2006 with Ferrari. He triumphed in 13 races in the F2004.
The 50-year-old is continuing rehabilitation at his adopted Swiss home after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident near Meribel, France on December 29, 2013.dpa
