Mick Schumacher wins Formula 3 European title with race to spare

Mick Schumacher son of Formula One superstar Michael Schumacher celebrates claiming the European Formula 3 Championship

Mick Schumacher - the 19-year-old son of seven-times Formula One world champion Michael - has won the European Formula Three title with victory in Hockenheim. "I'm just flabbergasted", Schumacher said.

The duo have previously exchanged heated words with Ticktum questioning the quick rise of Schumacher midway through the year, but the latter had the last comment on Saturday as he was confirmed as champion.

The German had finished 12th in the first race of the day following an early crash but made the podium in the second to succeed 2017 champion Lando Norris, who will drive for McLaren in F1 next season.

During the final lap Schumacher tried to attack in order to close the race and begin the celebrations in style with victory but Estonian Juri Vips held on to win.

Schumacher's title comes a year after he placed 12th overall in his debut F3 season.

The presence of the German teenager with the famous name generated huge media interest in F3 this season.

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.
