Austria - Dr Helmut Marko says he is not currently interested in signing up Mick Schumacher to Red Bull's famous driver development programme.

But when asked about Schumacher, the young Formula 4-racing son of F1 legend Michael Schumacher, Marko said: "Mick Schumacher is not on our radar.

For his part, Mick seems comfortable about racing the road to F1 in meticulous style, having already decided to spend a second year in F4 rather than leap into F3 in 2016.

The young German said: "For the moment, my goal is to become a good and complete race driver.

"Because of this, it's important to me to have a solid base and to become confident in all areas racing will be confronting me with," Schumacher added.
