Mick Schumacher is to demonstrate the Ferrari F2004 raced by his father, Michael, at next month’s German Grand Prix.
Schumacher, 20, has stepped up to Formula 2 this season off the back of a title-winning campaign in European Formula 3.
His father, 50, has not been seen in public since he sustained severe head injuries in a skiing accident in late 2013.
On Saturday and Sunday at Hockenheim Schumacher will sample the F2004 with which his father won his seventh and final world title.
“I think it's mega driving this car in Hockenheim,” said Schumacher. “The last time I was on this track was when I celebrated my Formula 3 championship title, and now I'll be able to drive one of the strongest cars in Formula 1 history there – a big grin creeps into my face.
“All motorsport crazy people can look forward to a very special and wonderfully loud moment.”
Ross Brawn, who was part of the Ferrari ‘dream team’ in 2004, added: “It will be an emotional moment seeing Mick at the wheel of a car linked to so many great memories.
“The F2004 was a fantastic car, which took 15 wins and both championship titles in a season that can be seen as the culmination of a golden period, which was the result of all the hard work from an amazing group of people and Michael Schumacher, a supremely talented driver.
“I’m sure that all the fans at Hockenheim will be pleased to see it roaring around the track again, especially with Mick in the cockpit.
“One of the requests we get most often from fans is to see the cars that wrote F1 history back on track, so this demonstration run at Hockenheim will be truly unmissable.”
