Schumacher's son Mick wins European F3 title

Schumacher's son Mick wins European F3 title

The head of Mercedes motorsport was equally impressed as Schumacher enjoyed a phenomenal second half of the season by picking up five straight wins last month to seize control of the drivers' championship.

Schumacher held his qualifying position of second throughout the race, with third-placed Prema team-mate Ralf Aron failing to put the German under too much pressure despite Schumacher running wide on several occasions.

"I am just happy that I can be here and really live the moment."

His father, a seven-time Formula One champion, has been unconscious since suffering a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013 after hitting his head on a rock. And from next year, the Formula 3 will receive the status worldwide, and Schumacher will be able to compete there.

Timeline on the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi
Manchester United did not comment on Monday night about reports that Saudi Arabia is interested in buying the club. Although officials agreed to the investigation, Whitson said that the message from the Saudi government is clear.

In an interview with the BBC earlier this year Mick Schumacher had said his father was a huge influence on him.

Daniel Ticktum, Schumacher's closest rival for the championship, finished fifth and the British teenager is now the only driver who can catch the German with two races left.

After a mediocre start, things clicked in July, when he won at Spa in Belgium, to claim his first victory in the 15th of 30 races this season.

Born in March 1999, the year before his father began a run of five consecutive F1 world titles for Ferrari, Mick started his racing career at the age of nine in karting.

He was 12th overall in his debut season a year ago.

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

In 2014, he finished the season finishing second overall in the German, European and world championships.

That's one more racing title for the Schumacher family.

Butler expected to play in Timberwolves' season opener
Given that Jimmy Butler's trade request has yet to be fulfilled, the saga is ongoing with seemingly more drama daily. Until that happens, Butler will be a good teammate and play as hard as he always does.

Mick is now qualified to do the same but with few racing seats currently available in the highest racing class, could instead progress to Formula 2.
