Mick Schumacher set to compete in F1

Before Monday's (NZ time) finale, Schumacher has moved 51 points clear of his nearest rival, Britain's Daniel Ticktum, and can no longer be caught in the third-tier racing series to clinch the first title of his young career.

Mick Schumacher, the son of record Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, has become the first German driver to win the Formula Three European Championship.

With the German starting second on the grid and Ticktum back in 15th, the title was Schumacher's to lose on the day and although he did not claim the race victory, it was a fairly routine outing to win the championship.

Schumacher's title ambitions were put on hold however earlier today when the Prema charger clashed with team Marcus Armstrong in the first race of the day won by Ferrari junior Guan Yu Zhou.

September was his golden month with five straight wins, three on Germany's Nuerburgring followed by the first two at Austria's Spielberg circuit to seize control of the drivers' championships.

To avoid attention he raced as "Mick Betsch", using his mother Corinna's maiden name.
