Schumacher moves to Ferrari-linked team

Mick Schumacher's team switch within the lower-tier categories of Formula 4 has now been confirmed.

In early January, we reported that the 16-year-old son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher was looking to switch from his Van Amersfoort team to the top Ferrari-linked outfit Prema for 2016.

The move was announced officially on Friday, and Kolner Express, a German tabloid, claims it will mean Schumacher will contest races in both the German and Italian F4 series this year.

Schumacher finished the full German series tenth overall on his 2015 single-seater debut.

"Prema for me is the perfect next step on my way to go for the best performance and to become a complete driver," said the teenager.
