The 15-year-old, who finished runner-up at the world championships in France last month having won the European title, was eighth in the final round of races, leaving main rival David Beckmann to finish fourth and win the overall German title.
Junior Schumacher's success on the karting track this season comes as his 45-year-old father Michael recovers from a major head injury after six months in a coma following a skiing accident in December in the French Alps.
Having raced under the surname of Betsch, his mother Corinna's maiden name, Mick Schumacher adopted the name Mick Junior this season and finished runner-up to British youngster Enaam Ahmed in the FIA's junior category world championships in Essay, France, in September.
