Schumacher staying in F4 this year

Michael Schumacher's son will delay his move into the highly-competitive European F3 series for at least another year.

That is the claim of Germany's Sport Bild, revealing that 16-year-old Mick will instead spend another full year in the formative single seater category Formula 4.

It is believed, however, that young Schumacher will combine both the German and Italian editions of F4 in 2016, amid speculation he will drive for the Ferrari-linked Prema team.

"Mick did a very good job in his tests for us," said team boss Angelo Rosin. "We are very interested in working with him in the forthcoming season."

Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said she will only make a statement "when we have something official to say".
