Schumacher's son to race with broken hand

Michael Schumacher's son will race through the pain barrier this weekend by going wheel-to-wheel with a broken hand.

16-year-old Mick suffered a fracture in his hand just below his right thumb when he crashed during the most recent round of German Formula 4 in Austria.

But Michael and Mick Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm has told Bild newspaper that the youngster has passed the mandatory medical checks and will be on the grid this weekend at Spa.

"I wanted to race," Mick said, "so now I am very relieved.

"Fortunately, what they told me in Austria is confirmed -- that the break is very simple. So everything should be fine in Spa," he added.
