Michael Schumacher's 16-year-old son, Mick, is to make his Formula 4 debut on Saturday.

While his seven-time world champion father continues to recover privately from a life-threatening skiing accident at the end of 2013, Mick Schumacher will drive his Van Amersfoort car in Oschersleben, Germany.

It is to be a debut under the Schumacher name for the teenager, who has previously driven under his mother's maiden name in go-kart racing.
