Mick Schumacher says his title celebrations are on hold until Sunday as he wants to sign off on his successful Formula 3 season with a final victory.

Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport declared there is an "heir to the Schumacher dynasty" - 14 years after Michael Schumacher's last F1 world title and 28 years after he was crowned German F3 champions, at two years older than Mick is now.

Mercedes feel Mick Schumacher can become "one of the greats of our sport" after clinching the FIA Formula 3 European Championship at the Hockenheimring.
