Biography of Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher

Despite having German parents, Mick Schumacher was born and raised in Switzerland, growing up in Vufflens-le-Chateau. He is famously the son of seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher and Western Riding European Champion Corinna Schumacher. As well as this, he the nephew of Ralf Schumacher, who himself was a former F1 driver in the 1990s and 2000s. Schumacher is the step-nephew of Sebastian Stahl, another German racing driver.

Schumacher was skiing with his father when Michael suffered life-threatening brain injuries on December 29, 2013. Mick first spoke publically about his father four years later, in 2017 - where he described Michael as his idol and inspiration.

Junior racing career

Schumacher started his motorsport career in 2008, where he initially raced under a pseudonym to avoid attention for his famous father. He chose the name 'Mick Betsch', his mother's maiden name.

Young Mick started karting in the KF3 class of the ADAC masters in 2011, ending his first year in ninth. In the Euro Wintercup of the Kp3 class, he was third in 2011 and 2012, while also achieving third in the KF3 Rating DMV Kart Championship. One year later, he finished third yet again, this time in the German Junior Kart Championship.

In 2014, Mick changed his racing name to 'Mick junior', and started racing in international championships, ending the season 2nd in the German Junior Kart Championship, as well in the European and World Championships. Despite not using his real surname his success was still reported in the international press.

Success in karting soon facilitated a move into single-seater cars, which began with the ADAC F4 series. He joined the series in 2015, following a 2014 test with Jenzer Motorsport. This was to be the first year in which he would race under the name 'Schumacher', while he would be doing so for the Amersfoort Racing team.

In 2016, Schumacher remained in ADAC, but switched to the Prema team, a team that is widely regarded as one of the best junior set-ups in motor-racing, with close links to the Ferrari driving academy to match. He would also enter the Italian F4 Championship with Prema, finishing runner up in the championship standings to Marcos Siebert.

The next major series Schumacher would compete in was the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, again with Prema Powerteam. He finished his debut season in 12th place, his best race finish being a third position at Monza. While Schumacher was the lowest finisher of the four Prema drivers, he was still ranked as the third-best-placed rookie in the championship.

Schumacher continued driving with Prema for the 2018 Championship. as would become customary for the young driver, he started the season slowly, not taking his first win until the 15th round of the season at Spa. Prior to this race, he was sitting 10th in the Championship standings, 67 points behind championship leader Dan Ticktum.

However, Schumacher would his way to that season's F3 title after an astonishing end to the season, where he won seven more races, including five on the spin. He ended the season as champion, 57-points clear of Ticktum, with seven pole positions and four fastest laps also to his name.

F2 Champion

Schumacher graduated to the Formula 2 Championship in 2019, driving for Prema Racing, initially alongside Sean Galeal. The German scored points in his first F2 race, before getting his first reverse grid pole position for the subsequent sprint race. Much of the early season would bring frustration for Schumacher, who suffered a spate of retirements due to collisions.

His second-highest finish that season came at the Red Bull Ring, where he picked up 4th place in the sprint race after an impressive surge through the field. The high mark of the season for Schumacher would come in Hungary, where he would convert reverse grid pole into a first F2 race win. He ended the season in 12th place in the championship, considerably ahead of his experienced teammate Galeal.

Mick would stay on with Prema for the 2020 F2 Championship, to be joined by the exciting young F3 champion - and fellow Ferrari Driver Academy member Robert Shwartzman. In the feature race at the season opener at Austria, he collided with fellow championship contender Callum Ilott while battling for the race lead.

He suffered similar misfortune in the second round of the 2020 Championship, when his fire extinguisher went off in the cockpit, forcing him to retire from the race. The German's title challenge finally got underway in earnest in Hungary, where he would seal a double podium. This was followed up by a run of five consecutive podiums, which included his second-ever F1 win in the feature race at Monza.

Schumacher took the F2 Championship lead for the very first time in Mugello that season, after an impressive mid-season. He further established control of the Championship in Russia, where he won a shortened Sprint Race. Schumacher's closest rival for the Championship heading into the final rounds in Bahrain was Callum Ilott, who capitalised on the leader failing to finish on the podium during either race in Bahrain.

Heading into the final round, on the outer configuration of the Sakhir layout, Scuhmacher had a 14 point advantage over Ilott. Remarkably, he would endure his worst ever qualifying performance in F2 for the feature race, starting well down in 18th position on the grid. His subsequent recovery drive thereafter, was the true mark of a champion.

Schumacher went on to finish sixth, passing a number of drivers in specular fashion en route to a title-defining drive. Ilott suffered from severe tire degradation in the second half of the feature race, which left the Brit outside the points - thus confirming Schumacher as the 2020 F2 Champion.

F1 career

In late 2020, Mick Schumacher was announced as a Haas F1 driver for the 2021 F1 season. He was paired alongside Russian Nikita Mazepin, whom the German previously competed against in F2 as well as in karting. The drive came partly as a result of Schumacher's long-standing association with Ferrari's F1 team - as he had been a member of its young driver's academy since 2019.

His first experience of driving a Formula 1 car came in April of 2019, when he partook in in-season testing at Bahrain for Ferrari. He made his first appearance at an F1 race weekend in 2020, driving for Haas in place of Kevin Magnussen during FP1 of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Ahead of the 2021 F1 season, which would be Schumacher's debut year in F1, he requested to use the infamous 'MSC' abbreviation as his own. MSC was the abbreviation used by his father Michael Schumacher, which at the time helped distinguish him from his brother Ralf. In previous junior racing series, Mick had raced under the 'SCH' abbreviation.
