But Mick insists his father still stands at the top as the sport’s greatest ever, and admitted he didn’t mind comparisons with the F1 legend as he gets set to make his bow.
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.’

On his much anticipated debut, Mick admitted: ‘It will generally be a very special moment.

Michael suffered a near-fatal brain injury back in December 2013 when he fell and hit his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps.
Schumacher was placed in a medically-induced coma which he is now out of, but following the skiing accident seven years ago, his condition has been kept a closely guarded secret from those outside his Lake Geneva mansion.
