It is a really big thing: Mick Schumacher receives the chance to test with the support of the brand with which his father Michael has become world champion five times in a row, on Friday in the first free practices of the so-called Eifel Grand Prix at the Nürburging. The seven time champion had won the world championships from 2000 to 2004 for and with Ferrari. Mick is now allowed to climb into a Formula 1 for the first time in front of a home crowd with the Ferrari-equipped Alfa Romeo by Antonio Giovinazzi; He has already completed tests in Fiorano with a Ferrari SF71H from 2018. Schumacher got into karting in 2008, switched to Formula 4, joined Prema in 2017 in European Formula 3 and won the title with this team in 2018; his first championship in formula racing. A way that the modelcars trace.
After winning the title, it traditionally went to Macau for the 65th Suncity Group Macau Grand Prix of the FIA Formula 3 World Cup. Mick Schumacher took fifth place on the street circuit in Macau, as reminded by the scale 1:43 modelcars from Minichamps.

The diecast models are listed under item number 113941705 and, like the helmets in 1:2, benefit from the golden autumn campaign.
Schumacher switched to the European FIA Formula 2 Championship with Prema in 2019, where he finished 12th in the drivers' championship after just one win, but was accepted by Ferrari into the Driver Academy in the same year. This also includes Callum Ilott and Robert Shwartzman, against whom Schumacher has to assert himself in Formula 2 in order to be able to advance to Formula 1 in 2021. Currently, before the last two race weekends in Bahrain from the end of November, Schumacher is ahead with 191 points of the Briton Ilott with 169. Shwartzman occupies fifth place with 140 points.
