Max Verstappen advises Mick Schumacher to step up to Formula 3


The young Formula 1 speedy Max Verstappen has urged Michael Schumacher’s son to make the step into Formula 3 for 2016.

This year, 16-year-old Mick made international headlines as he took the leap out of karts and into single seaters, starting with the German Formula 4 series.

So far, it has been an up-and-down debut campaign for the young German, but Verstappen, who at the age of 17 is only one year older than Schumacher, urges him to make another step as soon as possible.

“I would advise against another year in Formula 4 for Mick,” Verstappen, the youngest race driver in F1 history, told the Kolner Express newspaper.

“It would be a waste, because he learns nothing about aerodynamics there. He should go into Formula 3 already next year,” the young Dutchman advised.

Told, however, that Schumacher’s season so far has been up and down, Verstappen insisted: “That doesn’t matter. Mick is ambitious, and in formula 3 he will learn more.

“I also raced for Frits van Amersfoort and so I know he is doing a proper development for Mick. Hopefully we will meet up soon in formula one,” he added. (GMM)
