Mick Schumacher is the 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Champion. Following in the footsteps of some of the greatest drivers in history, the 19-year-old German joined a notable roster of winning PREMA Theodore Racing drivers who then proceeded to make their way to the pinnacle of motor racing. Schumacher rebounded well from a tough race 1 and crossing the finish line second in race 2, enough to clinch an early crown.

His performance this season was highlighted by seven pole positions and seven wins so far, but he will try to cap his 2018 endeavour with another top result in race 3, scheduled for tomorrow morning.

After securing its eighth title at Red Bull Ring, the team celebrated once again but it wasn’t today’s only celebration. Race 1, which was complicated by two lengthy safety car situations, saw poleman Guanyu Zhou deliver a stunning lights-to-flag win. The Chinese Ferrari Driver Academy man mastered the re-starts to take his second victory of the season.

“An unreal feeling, I am so happy about that championship! At the same time, I am so very grateful for being able to experience this, to live my dream and to have such a strong team behind and around me – that title is because of and for them! Everybody at Prema has worked extremely hard to celebrate that title now, we had a very cool year together. I have to admit that the fact that I am champion has not yet arrived at my mind totally, but I am sure I will enjoy it fully. Let’s now finish the season in style together”, Schumacher commented.
