Last year, Schumacher shocked the racing world with a dominant performance in the F3 championship, earning him the title. His hard work paid off and this year, Schumacher will make the jump to Formula 2 with Prema Racing. “Racing is constantly on my mind. Of course, my goal is Formula 1. The FIA Formula 2 Championship offers me another milestone towards my declared dream,” Schumacher said.
