Formula 1For Mick Schumacher, yesterday’s Great Britain Grand Prix turned out to be a historic race. The son of the Formula One legend Michael got his first World Cup points at Silverstone and that meant a lot to him and his family.
Schumacher crossed the finish line in eighth place yesterday. Excellent performance by the Haas driver and at the center of the World Cup he now has (four) points to his name. A huge relief, because it wasn’t easy for the 23-year-old German in the motorsport first division. He needed 31 races before he could take his first points.
In Great Britain, yesterday his family celebrated with passion. Sister Gina (Maria) and mother Corina were present at Silverstone and Gina was especially pleased with her younger brother’s performance. Immediately after his arrival I congratulated him on team radio (see video below) and later ‘disrupted’ an interview with Sky Sports by giving Mick a champagne shower. Gina later wrote on Instagram: “For me you are the winner.” For Mick, “it was great to have his family around,” he said in an interview with BILD. “I think we’ll continue to have fun…”
The Schumacher family is very close, especially after what happened to Pope Michael. The seven-time F1 world champion fell head on a stone while skiing in Méribel in France in 2013. He was wearing a ski helmet, but it didn’t prevent him from suffering serious head injuries and in a coma for several months. Even today, the family is very scarce with information about Schumacher’s condition.
Jenna congratulates her brother on the team radio: “Super, super, super, Mick!”
