Formula 3 Driver Mick Schumacher Learns to Drive on the Road

Formula 1 drivers get started early. By the age of 4 or 5, they’re probably learning to drive in little karts. Understandably, Mick Schumacher (son of world-famous F1 driver Michael Schumacher) got behind the wheel at an early age. He’s 18 years old and has performed very well in world Formula 4 races, after he started racing karts at age 9. This year he starts a Formula 3 season and... uh... learns to drive. On the road. Just like any other teenager.

Mercedes-Benz found this situation pretty funny. (So do we.) With podium finishes in multiple championship racing series, it seems silly for Mick to have to prove his driving skill to get a driver’s license. He’s not above the law, though, so he’ll have to go through the rigmarole like the rest of us!

We’re happy for Mick to join Formula 3 this season, and we hope to watch him on the Formula 1 track eventually. As for the road- always remember to signal your turns, Mick!
