Schumacher’s son to demonstrate ‘94 title-winning car at Spa

Michael Schumacher (GER) Benetton B194 won the race.
European Grand Prix, Jerez, Spain, 16 October

Mick Schumacher, son of seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher, will mark the 25th anniversary of his father’s maiden Grand Prix victory by demonstrating one of his championship-winning cars ahead of Sunday’s race in Belgium.

Having made his debut at Spa-Francorchamps in 1991 for Jordan, Michael Schumacher claimed the first of his record 91 F1 wins at the same track the following year for Benetton.

In recognition of that achievement, 18-year-old Mick, currently racing in European F3, will drive a Benetton B194 – the car with which his father won the 1994 world title, albeit after controversially losing victory in that year’s Belgian race for a technical infringement.

In total, Schumacher won a record six times at Spa, and the Belgian track was also the venue at which he clinched his seventh world title in 2004.
