Mick Schumacher is a German racing driver. He is the son of seven-time Formula One World Champion, Michael Schumacher, and has followed in his father’s footsteps. Mick began karting at a young age and quickly rose through the ranks, winning several championships along the way.
Schumacher made his Formula One debut in 2021 with the Haas F1 Team, and while he has yet to score any points, he has shown promise and potential in the highly competitive sport. Prior to his Formula One career, Schumacher won the 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Championship and the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship.
One of the milestones in Schumacher’s career was winning the 2020 Formula 2 Championship. This victory earned him a Super License, which is required to compete in Formula One. It was also a significant accomplishment because he became the first driver since Nico Hülkenberg in 2009 to win the Formula 3 and Formula 2 Championships in consecutive years.
Schumacher has worked with several notable figures in the racing world, including his father Michael Schumacher, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest drivers of all time. Mick has also worked with former Formula One driver and current Haas F1 Team Principal, Guenther Steiner, as well as legendary driver and commentator, David Coulthard. Other notable figures he has worked with include Ferrari team principal, Mattia Binotto, and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team driver, Valtteri Bottas.
While Schumacher has not been publicly involved in any animal advocacy or non-profit organizations, his family has been active in supporting animal causes. In 2018, Mick’s mother, Corinna Schumacher, launched the Keep Fighting Foundation in honor of her husband Michael Schumacher, who suffered a serious head injury in a skiing accident in 2013. The foundation supports a variety of causes, including animal welfare organizations.
