Mick Schumacher, son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher, secured two victories in one day on in the German Formula 4 championships.
“Of course, you can’t wish for more than winning twice in two races and I’m obviously delighted,” said Schumacher Jnr.
“The speed was there, the car was good, everything is okay,”
“I would also have liked to do a little more driving in race mode.”
Mick (17, Germany, Prema Powerteam) has now also won the second of the three ADAC Formula 4 races at the Lausitzring this weekend, his third win of the season.
Starting from pole position, the son of German record F1 championship winner Michael Schumacher ran out winner ahead of current championship leader Joey Mawson (20, Australia, Van Amersfoort Racing) and Jannes Fittje (16, Germany, US Racing).
Further comments on the ADAC Formula 4 race:
Joey Mawson (second, Van Amersfoort Racing):
“Unfortunately, we didn’t get as much driving in today as we would have wished. This weekend, we’re aiming to score as many points as possible, because Mick is getting a bit closer.”
Jannes Fittje (third, US Racing):
“I’m satisfied, but it wasn’t good that the race was interrupted so often. If the race had run normally, I might have been in with a chance of second place or even victory. But we were quick, and we’ll try our luck again tomorrow.”
Lirim Zendeli (Best Rookie, ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg e.V.):
“I’m definitely happy about that. The pace is there. On the first two weekends, I was unable to prove that. It was important to get off to a good start today. I managed to do that. If you start from near the front, there’s not much that can happen to you. But anyway, I’ve fulfilled one ambition today, namely to stand on the top rung of the podium. Because of the penalty I incurred in Race 1, I have to start the third race on Sunday from 21st on the grid. At the Sachsenring, I moved up from 35th place to eleventh. I hope it works out that way tomorrow as well.”
