"I'm absolutely delighted", said Schumacher, whose first win came relatively late in the campaign and at his father's favourite Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium.

"The team gave me so much support all year long, even in the lowest moments".

The head of Mercedes motorsport was equally impressed as Schumacher enjoyed a phenomenal second half of the season by picking up five straight wins last month to seize control of the drivers' championship.

The young racer's mother Corinna Schumacher was seen beaming after her son's crowning moment, which saw his unassailable 347 points qualify him to race in the Formula One races next season. I can hardly describe what a handsome feeling it is to be doing something that you love really well.

Mick Schumacher is destined to end up in Formula 1 if he keeps delivering the kind of performances which have crowned him European Formula 3 champions, according to former grand prix victor Gerhard Berger. And from next year, the Formula 3 will receive the status global, and Schumacher will be able to compete there.

He told the news agency: "He has shown that he has what it takes and that he can become one of the greats in our sport".

Lewis Hamilton, who is closing in on his fifth F1 crown, is among former F3 title winners with a vehicle powered by a Mercedes engine.

With few clear vacant seats for the 2019 season being available though, it is likely that Schumacher will progress to the Formula 2 series rather than jump straight into the premier class.

The seven-time Formula One champion ended his career in 2012 and has not made a public appearance since suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident in late 2013.

In an interview with the BBC earlier this year Mick Schumacher had said his father was a huge influence on him.
