Mick Schumacher teams up with Vettel in Race of Champions

Formula 3 champion Mick Schumacher and Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel will compete together in next year's Race of Champions, with the young German making his debut in January.

The Race of Champions will be held at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on January 19th and 20th, the same venue that hosted the Mexican Grand Prix in F1. Vettel has won six consecutive RoC Nations Cups with Michael Schumacher, Mick's father. He will be following in his father's steps.

"I'm honoured to enter this competition which my father always loved and in which he set the bar very high together with Sebastian," Schumacher was quoted by Motorsport.com.

"There are so many renowned drivers in action and I'm looking forward to competing against them and getting to know them better; I'm looking forward to the fun we'll all have together and which we'll offer for the spectators in Mexico.

"But of course I’ll do everything to get far in the individual event and to win the RoC Nations Cup trophy with Sebastian for Team Germany."

The event will be held at the famous stadium-section at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. A purpose-built track will be built for the competition at the end of January.
