Mick Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel team up for ROC Mexico!


Team Germany will field the perfect line-up at the Race of Champions event scheduled in January, with Mick Schumacher set to partner Sebastian Vettel.

The 19-year-old European F3 champion will make his ROC debut on January 19-20, 2019 at the Foro Sol stadium located at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit.

In Mexico City, Schumacher will join forces with Vettel who won six consecutive ROC Nations Cup titles with Mick's father, the great Michael Schumacher, and the young charger hopes to pick up where his father left off with his countryman in 2012.

"I am overwhelmed that I’ve been invited to participate in the Race Of Champions as the champion of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship," said Mick.

"And I'm even more overwhelmed that I'm going to form Team Germany with Sebastian Vettel.

"It's going to be tough because Sebastian is a big player in the Race Of Champions and of course I want to be a worthy team-mate for him!

"I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to the Race Of Champions weekend, especially as it will be held in Mexico where this year's F1 World Championship was decided and everyone has seen how much Mexican fans can party in the spectacular Foro Sol.

"Now the ROC weekend will be just as spectacular for me. Such a debut at such an event is simply sensational."

The Race Of Champions is an annual contest which has a history dating back over 30 years.


It brings together many of the world’s greatest drivers from motorsport’s major disciplines – including Formula 1, NASCAR, IndyCar, Le Mans, World Rally and RallyX – and sets them free to battle head-to-head in identical machinery.

"I'm honoured to enter this competition which my father always loved and in which he set the bar very high together with Sebastian," added Schumacher.

"There are so many renowned drivers in action and I'm looking forward to competing against them and getting to know them better.

"I'm looking forward to the fun we'll all have together and which we'll offer for the spectators in Mexico.

"But of course I’ll do everything to get far in the individual event and to win the ROC Nations Cup trophy with Sebastian for Team Germany!"
