Schumacher to race ex-team mate’s son in karts

2013 F1 season

Michael Schumacher will return to racing at the wheel of a go-kart in the WSK Euro Series.

Schumacher will drive for the Tony Kart team in the KZ1 category at the La Conca circuit in Italy on Sunday. See video of him testing at the track above.

Among the 44-yer-old seven-times F1 champion’s rivals is 15-year-old Max Verstappen, son of Schumacher’s 1994 Benetton team mate Jos Verstappen.

Schumacher won the German and European karting championships in 1987, four years before he made his Formula One debut for Jordan.

Schumacher made several returns to karting after graduating to Formula One. He competed against Lewis Hamilton in 2001 and made another appearance for Tony Kart prior to his 2010 F1 comeback.

    Glad Schumi enjoying him.

    With regards to Max, saw one of the Championship races, he won first heat rather easy, but was overtaken by an Australian boy during second heat. This led him to do a crazy kamikaze move for a first just to ruin his and other boy’s chances. I think race was in Lugano, not sure.
