Mick steps into family business; SPORTS LOG.

Mick Schumacher, son of Formula One legend Michael, has won the European F3 title with a race to spare.

Second place in yesterday's second race at Hockenheim was enough to secure a first junior championship.

It also qualifies the German to race in F1 next season although there are few vacant seats available.

The 19-year-old said: "I still can't quite believe it."

Schumacher has secured eight wins in 12 races including five in a row with the Mercedes-powered Prema team.

Mercedes motorsport head Toto Wolff said: "He has shown he has what it takes and that he can become one of the greats in our sport."

| Darryl Wood insists it's time Glasgow Rocks double down with a PS100,000 prize pot going at today's All-Stars Championship in London. The rookie boss has come under fire following the club's poor start to the season despite getting the backing of owner Duncan Smillie.

Wood said: "This is a big deal because it's the only chance BBL clubs get to make money off a tournament. So we need to take it seriously and everyone wants to do well.

"But we also can't change the whole set-up for one weekend. We still have confidence in the guys we have."
