Mick Schumacher caps car-racing debut with win

    (CNN)His father would be so proud.

    There was a familiar sight for motorsport fans as a smiling Schumacher splashed champagne on the podium.
    Not Formula One legend Michael, who is still recovering from serious head injuries suffered in a 2013 skiing accident, but his teenage son Mick -- who impressed on his debut in the new F4 series.
      The 16-year-old was named best rookie for his heroics on the first day of racing at the Oschersleben track, between Hanover and Berlin and rounded off the weekend Sunday with a superb victory.
      Starting second on the grid, he took the lead and controlled the race from the front without making any mistakes.
      His victory followed a 12th place in the morning racing.
      "Of course, I'm over-joyed, my first weekend of racing couldn't have gone any better," Schumacher said.
      "All in all, I am completely happy over the start of the season and I am looking forward to the next race."
      With Michael Schumacher still recovering from a serious head injury suffered during a skiing accident in December 2013, his father Rolf Schumacher has been at the circuit to watch his grandson race.
      Schumacher has previously raced karts under the surname Betsch -- his mother Corinna's maiden name.
