Biography

Mick Schumacher wanted to become a racing driver as a child, which is understandable since he is the son of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, who at the time of Mick’s birth was a two-time world champion with Benetton and a current Ferrari driver.

Mick has been competing on the world karting scene since 2013, and achieved his first major success in the CIK-FIA KF-Junior Super Cup competition at Silverstone driving for the Tony Kart Racing Team when he finished third.

In 2014, Schumacher finished second in the CIK-FIA Euro KFJ Championship consisting of four races, and in 2015 he competed in the German F4 Championship for Van Amersfoort Racing and finished tenth overall with one win and two podium finishes.

In 2016, Schumacher continued to compete in two Formula 4 championships and finished second in both of them for Prema Powerteam – in the Italian championship he achieved five victories, 10 podiums, 2 pole positions and 6 fastest laps, while in the German championship he also achieved five victory, but with 12 podiums, four pole positions and two fastest laps.

Successes in Formula 4 were enough for Schumacher to continue in Formula 3 in 2017, also for the Prema Powerteam team, and in his first season he finished 12th in the drivers ’standings with one win.

But in the second season of European Formula 3 Schumacher became the champion even though he waited for the first victory until half of the season, more precisely until the third race of the fifth weekend of the season in Belgium when he celebrated at the Spa Francorchamps.

After that victory, Schumacher was still far from the leading position and was in eighth place with 53 points less than the leading Armstrong, but in the next five weekends (15 races) the German achieved seven victories and three second places, including five consecutive victories at Nurburgring and Red Bull Ring.

After winning the Formula 3 title, Schumacher moved to Formula 2 in 2019 driving for Prema Racing, and in the first season he achieved average results and waited for his first victory until the 16th of 24 championship races at Hungaroring where he celebrated from pole position.

He finished the 2019 season in 12th place with one win and two fastest laps, and in the same year he became a member of the Ferrari Driving Academy and tested current F1 cars for Ferrari and Alfa Romeo after the first F1 season race in Bahrain in early April.

Schumacher continued in Formula 2 with the Prema Racing team in 2020, and on the second weekend of the season in Hungary he twice finished third. He also finished third at the Spa Francorchamps, but waited for his first victory until the 15th of 24 races of the season at Monza, being only three points behind leading drivers Shwartzman and Ilott.

By the end of the season, Schumacher had only one more victory in the first race in Russia, but by constantly scoring points and with a total of ten podiums, he won the Formula 2 title after already securing a place in Formula 1 with Haas for 2021.

Due to the famous last name, expectations for Mick Schumacher are extremely high, but the German is determined to focus on learning and getting used to the pressure of Formula 1 racing in his first season. His first aim is to beat his teammate Nikita Mazepin, who finished fifth in the 2020 F2 Championship.
