Mick Schumacher to Mercedes as future replacement for Nico Rosberg?

Formula 4 rising star Mick Schumacher, son of seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher, is expected to sign a developmental deal with Mercedes to drive in the Formula 3 series for 2017. This surprising development comes on the heels of current Formula 1 champion, Nico Rosberg, announcing his retirement from the global racing series late last week. While the 17-yr-old prodigy will need more seasoning before racing at open wheel’s highest level, Mercedes appears eager to pen a deal with the young Schumacher before a slot opens at Ferrari.
