Newey's son to partner Schumacher's son in F4

Adrian Newey's son Harrison will partner Michael Schumacher's son Mick at Van Amersfoort Racing in this year's German Formula Four series.

Harrison Newey, the son of Red Bull F1 design guru Adrian, will race in six of the eight rounds of the championship alongside Schumacher, who was confirmed at the Dutch team earlier this month.

Van Amersfoort Racing helped Max Verstappen reached F1 after fielding the Dutch driver in European F3 last year.

Newey will also be racing in the British Formula Four series this season.

"I am very happy to be racing for Van Amersfoort Racing this season," said the 16-year-old. "The team did very well in recent years and I am looking forward to working with them.

"The circuits are all new to me, so that will be a huge challenge, but there is a good simulator at Van Amersfoort Racing's, so that will surely help. I am really looking forward to the season and I can hardly await the first time I will be in the car!"

Team boss Frits van Amersfoort added: "This has been one of the most pleasant weeks in our four-decade history. We're extremely honored to have some of auto racing most credible persons choosing to entrust our team in the development of two promising young talents.

"We see their confidence as a unique challenge that everyone at Van Amersfoort Racing is ready to take up with dedication and driven by a sincere desire to help the drivers fulfill their dreams."
