David Schumacher pleased after Formula 4 test

Test with US Racing at Lausitzring

David Schumacher, who is about to move up to formula motor racing from karting was "very pleased with first test" at Lausitzring.

David Schumacher, the son of ex-Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher and nephew of record Formula 1 world championship winner Michael Schumacher, completed his first test in a Formula 4 car at the Lausitzring. The junior drove a racing car prepared by US Racing and was thrilled by the many new experiences.

"I'm very pleased with my first Formula 4 test with US Racing," is what the 16-year-old wrote on his Facebook page," Thanks for all the good work!" Leon Köhler and Marius Zug also took part in testing.

David's cousin, Mick, was a competitor in the ADAC Formula 4 during the last two seasons, finishing championship runner-up in 2016 behind Joey Mawson (Australia, Van Amersfoort Racing). Mick Schumacher has been busy contesting the Formula 3 European championship this year.
