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 51-year-old.

He told Bild: “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.”

The Formula 1 season is set to start again in March and Mick, due to make his debut for Haas, admitted it will be a special moment for his family.

The Formula 2 champion added: “It will generally be a very special moment.”

It “will certainly be a very moving moment, but I want to stay focused on my objectives, my races and the work with the team.”

Schumacher Jr will partner fellow rookie Nikita Mazepin, the son of a Russian billionaire, who was confirmed at the start of the month.

And recently revealed the expertise he passed on to his son Mick before his accident continues to be helpful.
