MICK SCHUMACHER believes his dad Michael is the greatest of all time and admitted he’s OK with comparisons between the pair.
The 23-year-old is aiming to follow in his father’s footsteps and become an F1 champion.
Haas driver Mick’s dad Michael is a seven-time world champion – tied with Lewis Hamilton who also beat his legendary 91-race win record.
Yet the German claimed his old man remains the best after insisting that he understands the constant comparisons with the 53-year-old.
Speaking last year to Bild, he said: “I’m OK with that, all the questions and comparisons with my father do not bother me.
“For me, he is the all-time best in this sport, to which he has given his all. I don’t see why I should disregard that.”
Schumacher Jr made his debut for Haas last season.
He partnered fellow rookie Nikita Mazepin, the son of a Russian billionaire.
Schumacher Jr finished 19th in the drivers standings.
The star was in action at Silverstone yesterday and enjoyed an eighth-place finish.
Schumacher Sr suffered a severe head trauma in a skiing accident in 2013.
The legendary German driver is thought to be continuing his recovery at a luxury villa in Majorca but his close friend and ex-Ferrari chief Jean Todt previously suggested that he may be conscious.
And revealed how the expertise he passed on to his son Mick before his accident continues to be helpful.
