Scuderia Ferrari Open To Signing Michael Schumacher’s Son, Mick

With arguably the most famous surname in motorsport, Mick Schumacher will have quite a lot to prove if he ever makes the transition to Formula 1 racing, something that is beginning to look quite likely.

After dominating a recent F3 round at the Nurburgring and winning all three races, Schumacher Jr trails Red Bull youngster Dan Ticktum in the drivers standings by just three points.

With two rounds left this year, if he ends up winning the title, Schumacher would follow in the footsteps of recent champions such as Esteban Ocon, Lance Stroll and 2019 McLaren driver Lando Norris.

Of course, if he does come to Formula 1, what could be more perfect than a reunion between the Schumacher name and Scuderia Ferrari, whose team boss Maurizio Arrivabene has already taken notice of the young German driver’s talent.

“The recent results were very, very good and I wish to him a great career,” Arrivabene said in a recent interview in Singapore. “But let the guy have fun. I always repeat this: [young drivers should be] focused, concentrated, but at the same time have fun and grow up slowly but certainly. Then we will see about the future.”

The Ferrari team principal then went on to say “How can you say no, in Maranello, to a name like this?”

Yet, according to Sauber boss Frederic Vasseur, the path to F1 from F3 isn’t as easy as some might think.

“Honestly, I think there is a huge step between F3 and F1, and with the small number of test days we have during the winter, I think it’s… I don’t want to say impossible, because we will see, but it’s quite difficult to do the step.’

“It will make sense probably for him to do Formula 2 or something like this. But he could have a link with a Formula 1 team, he could do some FP1s. There are many ways to prepare for F1.”
