The 16-year-old Mick finished third in the fourth and final round of the race. While other contenders participated in three other races held in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Mick took part in only the Indian leg of the championship.
Though Mick started on the fourth grid, he slipped to sixth position at one point but gained ground amazingly for a podium finish.
“I’m so happy. India treated me well. I like this circuit,” Mick said after the third place finish.
Brazilian Pietro Fittipaldi is currently in the top spot in the overall tally. Followed by Tattiana Calderon from Columbia and Nikita Troitcki from Russia. India’s Tarun Reddy stands sixth.
Mick’s legendary dad, Michael, a seven-time world champion, is still in a Medical induced coma after he suffered major injuries in a skiing accident.
