Mick, champion of Formula 2 in 2020 and European Formula 3 in 2018, has always used the SCH, but considered it necessary to request the change as a tribute to his father.

“I wanted that MSC. It is an emotional bond that I have with him. I think it will be quite nice for everyone to watch the timing screens and see MSC again. I think it's a positive thing ”, Mick assured about his request.

“I am very happy to carry that surname, and I am very happy to bring that name back to Formula 1, and I am very proud of it. It's like a boost for me and it motivates me every day ”, added the 22-year-old.

When Schumi debuted in Formula 1 in 1991 he was identified with SCH, but this changed when his brother Ralf in 1997. From there Michael began to use the MSC to distinguish himself from Ralf, who used the CSR.
