Schumacher's son to make F4 debut

Michael Schumacher's son Mick will make his single-seater racing debut this year with the Van Amersfoort Racing team.

The 15-year-old, son of the seven-time Formula One world champion, will compete in the new-for-2015 ADAC Formula Four with the Dutch team.

Schumacher has been racing in karting in recent years.

"In the last couple of years, it has become a tradition for us that we offer the runner-up from the German junior karting championship (DJKM) a test session in our simulator," said Frits van Amersfoort.

"This is handled by the DMSB, the German motorsport authority, and that is how we first got in touch with Mick Schumacher last autumn.

"He spent a full day in the simulator at our headquarters in The Netherlands. Then we witnessed him during a test session at Valencia and eventually, we reached an agreement to compete together in this year's ADAC Formula 4 series."

The 2015 ADAC Formula Four season kicks off in April at the Oschersleben circuit.
