Racing is what I dream of. Actually, racing is constantly on my mind. It’s exhausting, it’s difficult, it’s challenging, it’s complicated. It’s simply awesome.
Formula 3 is considered as one of the most important junior categories in international single-seater racing. For more than five decades it has been the ideal training ground for the future stars of the sport.
The 2017 FIA European Formula 3 Championship is an multi-event motor racing championship for single-seat open wheel formula racing cars that is held across Europe. The championship features drivers competing in two-litre Formula Three racing cars which conform to the technical regulations for the championship. It is the sixteenth edition of the FIA European Formula Three Championship and the sixth edition after the European Formula Three Championship merged with the Formula 3 Euro Series.
PREMA Racing was founded in 1983 by Angelo Rosin and Giorgio Piccolo. From 1994, as a consequence of changes within the company, with the transformation into Prema Powerteam the Team’s activities increased at an international level.
Nowadays, PREMA is one of Europe’s leading international racing teams. It is in fact the third Italian Team (after F1 Teams: Ferrari and Toro Rosso) based on the Team’s dimension, importance and Championships in which it participates. Since its foundation the team has focused on developing and enhancing young drivers’ talents and skills. Honda, Toyota, Renault, Mercedes, Lotus and Ferrari have chosen to support PREMA to help their drivers on the way to racing success.
The team’s tasks are not limited to just the tuning and set up of its racing vehicles, it also aims to deliver the complete training of each driver, from the development of technical knowledge to the improvement of physical fitness.

Mick began his career in karting in 2008. In 2011 and 2012 he drove in the KF3 class of the ADAC Kart Masters, ending in 9th and 7th respectively. In the Euro Wintercup of the KF3 class he was 3rd in 2011 and 2012 and in 2012 was 3rd in the KF3 Rating DMV Kart Championship.
In 2013 he finished 3rd in the German Junior Kart Championship, and the CIK‐FIA Super Cup KF juniors. In 2014 Mick started in International and National Junior Championships, ending the season 2nd in the World and European as well as in the German Junior Kart Championship.
In 2015 Mick moved to formula classes for the first time, racing for Van Amersfoort Racing in the ADAC Formula 4 Championship, ending the season 10th with 1 win and 2 podiums. In 2016 he switched to Prema Powerteam for another year in Formula 4, competing in both the german and the italian championhips and finishing both series as 2nd in the overall standings. Since 2017, Mick is driving with Prema in the FIA European Formula 3 Championship.
My second year in Formula 3 will certainly advance me a long way. Now I can put all the experiences from the past year into practice even more. I want to fight at the top and establish myself at the top.
I have to say, 2017 was a very instructive year for me. The competition in Formula 3 is tough, strong and tight; it was enriching to fight at this level. It was a lot of fun.
The fact that I can continue to work with a professional team such as Prema can only help me move forward. The team is great; not only in sports, but also in human terms. I feel very well cared for here.
Everything has to fit together so that the performance is right and a race runs as desired. I will try to bring together what belongs to a race weekend as perfectly as possible; on and off the track.
Every day I’m happy to be part of this experience, to compete with the other guys, to get closer to my dream of Formula One.
For Racers, sport is never limited just to the racing track. Mick is gaining fitness and fun also with…
…the racing bike
“Simply a good and complete training. What I especially like is to play with the slipstream, biking with several people, going downhill.“
…the mountain bike
“It’s cool because you have to be very active. And there’s nothing more beautiful than to bike through the forest. Actually you are in the nature all the time, something I really like.“
… with the wakeboard/monoski
“I just so much enjoy going behind one boat together with other friends. That’s total fun. Summer, on the lake – just perfect.“
