Mick Schumacher to race Formula Two in 2019© Provided by AFP Mick Schumacher, 19, has announced he will race in Formula Two next season, ending speculation that he might step up to Formula One in 2019.

Mick Schumacher, the teenage son of ex-Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, will race in Formula Two next season, ending speculation he might skip F2 and step up to F1 in 2019.

"For me, this is a logical step, because I want to continue to improve my technical experience and driving skills" the 19-year-old said in a press release issued by his Italian team Prema Racing.

The confirmation pours cold water on speculation he would leap up to F1 in 2019 after winning the European Formula Three title last month, but he has made no secret that he one day wants to race in the top tier.

Verstappen's recent form bodes well for 2019 F1 championship

Verstappen's recent form bodes well for 2019 F1 championship The way Max Verstappen has driven recently offers encouragement of a more open Formula One title race next year. Verstappen has been in typically daredevil form, with some overtaking moves of the highest class, and the Red Bull driver is aiming to sign off the season in style at this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. F1 needs him to carry over his form into 2019, too. Because each year since 2014, the championship contest has been between Lewis Hamilton and one other driver: his former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg and more recently Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

Mick Schumacher , the son of seven-time champion Michael, will race in Formula 2 for the first time next season. Prema F2 team boss Rene Rosin said the squad were eager to start working with Schumacher , who he described as an "extremely talented and dedicated racer ".

After dominating the second half of the F3 season by claiming five straight wins, Schumacher's title win meant he qualified for a FIA 'super licence' - a prerequisite for the jump to Formula One.

Bearing one of the most famous names in motorsports is not always easy for the German, who started out racing as "Mick Betsch", using his mother Corinna's maiden name to avoid bringing attention to himself.

World champion Lewis Hamilton has already said he is "100 percent certain that there will be another Schumacher in F1" and backs him to follow in the footsteps of his father, who won seven F1 titles.

"I have no problem being compared to my dad, because my dad is the best - that's why he's my role model," Mick Schumacher said in an RTL documentary.

"Even other world champions compare themselves with my dad."

However, his father's condition remains a mystery as the fifth anniversary approaches of his skiing accident.

Michael Schumacher, 49, has not been seen in public since suffering head injuries during a accident on December 29, 2013 while skiing with Mick and his condition is a secret closely guarded by his family.

Force India name to change in F1 for 2019.
The Force India name will disappear from Formula 1 next year, with the team being officially renamed Racing Point F1. Following the takeover of the outfit by a consortium led by Lawrence Stroll, it had retained its Force India moniker for its team and chassis. However in the official 2019 F1 entry list that was published by the FIA on Friday night, it was confirmed the Silverstone-based squad would be fully rebranded. It will bring an end to the Force India name which has been present in F1 since former team boss Vijay Mallya took over the Spyker team at the end of the 2007 campaign.
