London – Michael Schumacher’s teenage son Mick will mark the 25th anniversary of the German’s first Formula One victory by driving demonstration laps in a 1994 Benetton at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix.

Sabine Kehm, a manager for both father and son and spokeswoman for the family, told Reuters on Wednesday that the 18-year-old would be at the wheel before Sunday’s race at Spa-Francorchamps.

Schumacher, the seven times world champion who suffered severe head injuries in a skiing accident in France in 2013, took his breakthrough win – the first of a record 91 career victories – at the circuit on Aug. 30, 1992.

Spa was a special place for the German, who won the 1994 and 1995 crowns with Benetton before five titles in a row with Ferrari from 2000-04.
