Michael Schumacher’s manager on Wednesday urged for calm as the German legend’s 16-year-old son started his own climb towards formula one.
We reported earlier that 100 journalists and other media professionals had flocked to the Oschersleben circuit, where Mick Schumacher on Wednesday started official pre-season testing for his first year in single seaters.
But Sabine Kehm, the Schumachers’ manager, announced that Mick will not be speaking to the press as he gets down to work in the German Formula 4 series.
“We mustn’t forget that this is a young boy who has just turned 16,” she is quoted by AAP news agency.
“He will gain a lot of new experience this year and, at the same time, do everything to give his best. But of course, I would like to ask very much for restraint so that he can really call on his best possible performance,” Kehm added. (GMM)
