Mercedes ramps up move for Mick Schumacher

Michael Schumacher’s teenage son appears in the middle of a scrap between Ferrari and Mercedes over his future.

Early week of this month, Mick tested for the European F3 team Prema, an Italian outfit with close links to Ferrari.

Schumacher’s famous father Michael won five world championships with Ferrari, but his last team in F1 was Mercedes.

Recently Mercedes set Mick Schumacher participation to its end-of-season Stars and Cars event in Stuttgart, and now stepping up its quest to secure Mick’s future.

He will race alongside Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at a Mercedes event in December.

The Mercedes Stars and Cars event will take place on Saturday, December 12 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart as a celebration of the latest Mercedes Motorsport season. As part of the event, 16 drivers will face off in identical cars around a stadium circuit – similar to the Race of Champions.

Schumacher’s current F4 outfit, the Dutch team Van Amersfoort, was powered by Volkswagen engines in European F3 this year, where Mick is now tipped to move for 2016.

And Express said Van Amersfoort is moving to Mercedes power for 2016.

Boss Frits van Amersfoort denies it. “Not all the contracts are signed for next year — not even with Mick,” he said.

As for Mick’s test with Prema, reportedly under the watchful eye of Ferrari’s Luca Baldisserri, van Amersfoort insists: “It is normal that drivers do that in the winter, it’s no problem.

“Mick’s test times were good, but we were faster.”
