Mick Schumacher says he’s excited to take to track at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix because it is 30 years on from his father Michael’s Formula 1 debut, but also a track he has performed well at in the junior series’.

Seven-time champion Michael Schumacher made his F1 debut at the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix for Jordan.

Mick drove his father’s Jordan 191 earlier in the year at Silverstone.

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s Belgian GP, he said: “Obviously it is [special], yeah. Not just because of the history of my dad but I’ve had a few good races here. I had my first pole position, my first race win in 2018 with F3 which became a streak with multiple race wins.

“It’s a track that I enjoy a lot and I enjoy coming back here. It’s close to home, a lot of fans come here and people support me for numerous years now. It’s a great place.”
