Mick Schumacher finished second in the German karting championship last season and has been picked up by Van Amersfoort Racing.
“In the last couple of years, it has become a tradition for us that we offer the runner-up from the German junior karting championship (DJKM) a test session in our simulator,” team owner Frits Van Amersfoort said in a team statement.
“This is handled by the DMSB, the German motorsport authority, and that is how we first got in touch with Mick Schumacher last autumn. He spent a full day in the simulator at our headquarters in The Netherlands.
“Then we witnessed him during a test session at Valencia and eventually, we reached an agreement to compete together in this year’s ADAC Formula 4 series.”
Michael Schumacher is continuing his recovery from skiing accident in December 2013.
The seven-time world champion spent nine months in hospital after suffering major head injuries.
The German Formula 4 season begins on April 25.
