Michael Schumacher's son, Mick, paid tribute to his father in the preview of the 2017 edition of the Belgian Grand Prix at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, thus celebrating the 25th anniversary of his first victory in Formula 1, which occurred on August 30 1992.
Mick Schumacher, current European Formula 3 driver, drove the Benetton with which Schumi won his first world title in 1994.
This tribute came precisely the weekend in which the English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) achieved his 68th pole position and equaled the record held by the Kaiser.
“There are many emotions. It's great to have been able to drive the car, ”said Mick, who was followed by television cameras and an army of photographers.
During his F.1 campaign, Schumi contested 307 Grand Prix, achieved 91 victories (half a dozen of them in Spa), 68 pole positions, 77 lap records, 155 podiums and seven titles (1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002 , 2003 and 2004).
48-year-old Michael Schumacher suffered a skiing accident in 2013 that resulted in severe head injuries, and since then the seven-time world champion has not reappeared publicly and his current health status is unknown by the decision of his family.
However, your child is not silent when it comes to expressing his wishes. "My dream is to compete in Formula 1. I will give everything to make it come true."[sam_pro id = 1_20 codes = ”true”]
