Mick Schumacher says he has similar qualities to father Michael

Young star Mick Schumacher has compared himself to his father Michael, saying that he believes he has similar qualities to his seven-time champion father.

Schumacher Jr has impressed this season in Formula 2, and took his first win last month in Hungary, whilst testing for both Ferrari and Alfa Romeo F1 teams this year.

He has been tipped to be a future star, but has kept his feet on the ground and remains focused on his goal.

Schumacher said in an article with Süddeutsche Zeitung: "Private life is also very important to me. To keep the private really private, in which my father is very good, that was always the top priority for him.

"There are many aspects where I say, 'Wow, that was just how he did it'. For example, I pay attention to how he solved certain situations. 

"Still, I think it's important to make your own mistakes. But if, in some situations, I know how to react and avoid big mistakes, that's better of course. I think there is a lot to learn from him for me. We have a similar temperament."
