Germany - As teens, Max Verstappen and Lance Stroll both powered straight out of European F3 onto the Formula 1 grid.

But Schumacher, son of the F1 legend Michael Schumacher, says he is in no such rush.

"I've just come into Formula 3 - my second weekend is just over," the 18-year-old German told the ARD broadcaster.

He said: "For me it's about taking one step at a time.  I cannot say anything concrete yet."

'It's extremely fun'

Schumacher said he already feels comfortable in the highly competitive junior series, although he is currently just fifth overall.

He said: "I have no real trouble. The car is extremely fast - I think almost as fast as DTM. It's extremely fun."

Norbert Haug, the former Mercedes F1 chief, hailed Schumacher's progress so far.
