Video: Mick Schumacher on F3 success and his future in F1

Mick Schumacher recently made headlines by clinching his maiden FIA Formula 3 European victory at Spa-Francorchamps - coincidentally the same venue at which his father, Michael, made his Formula 1 debut and achieved his first ever F1 win.

The young driver spoke to Mobil 1 The Grid about what the victory had meant to him, and the legacy of the Schumacher name in motorsport as a whole.

"I have only good memories of Spa," said the 19-year-old. "As everybody knows, this is, let’s say, the living room of my dad.

"I really like and love racing here, because I know that he raced here as well. I’m always happy to be here and every year to come back here."

Spa is also where he got to drive his father's race-winning 1994 car during the build-up to last year's Belgian Grand Prix.

"The 1994 car was, for sure, stunning to have a lap in here," he said. "Unfortunately, it was only one. To be honest, it wasn’t that much of a difference to an F3 car.

"I had hoped to have a bit more, let’s say, mileage in it, but it wasn’t the case. Hopefully in the future I will be able to drive some other cars."

Schumacher is hoping that the future also holds a place on the Formula 1 grid.

"For sure, my goal was always F1, and it’s still my goal," he said. "Now we’re doing one step after the other. I’m looking forward to it."
