VIENNA Austria - Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher's son, Mick, had his second crash in Formula Four on Saturday (June 6 2015).

The 16-year-old racer hit a tyre wall at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, but was not hurt.

After a successful karting career, the young Schumacher began Formula Four in 2015, winning his first victory in April 2015 in only his third race.


In March 2015 Wheels24 reported that Mick kicked off his single-seater career with a crash.

In April 2015 Wheels24 reported that Michael Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, was working hard to keep news about the health of her famous client quiet.

Ever since Schumacher was injured during a skiing fall in 2013 Kehm has carefully guarded his privacy.

Italy's Autosprint claims this has been especially true over the past few months, during which there was barely any news about the health of the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver.
