Mick Schumacher to demonstrate '94 car
24 August 2017 – Mick Schumacher will carry out a demonstration run in the 1994 Benetton at the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend, to mark the 25th anniversary of his father's maiden Formula 1 victory.
Michael Schumacher is synonymous with Spa-Francorchamps, having made his debut at the circuit in 1991, taken his first of 91 wins in 1992 and the last of seven titles in 2004.
Schumacher has not been seen in public since he sustained severe head injuries in a skiing accident in December 2013, but his legacy will be honoured this weekend.
European Formula 3 racer Schumacher is set to carry out a demonstration run in the title-winning B194 on Sunday lunchtime at the venue, according to Reuters.
Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, explained that mechanical and insurance issues meant the B192, the 1992 car, is not able to run, hence the use of the 1994 machine.
18-year-old Schumacher holds 11th position in the F3 standings in his rookie campaign.
