Mick Schumacher opens up on relationship with Sebastian Vettel with comparisons

Mick Schumacher has drawn similarities between his relationship with Ferrari driver and four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, than the relationship Vettel used to have with Schumacher's father, Michael.

Schumacher signed for Ferrari towards the end of last year as an Academy driver and is now on the brink of completing his debut season in Formula 2 after winning the Formula 3 title the season before.

Vettel is someone who has given Schumacher lots of encouragement and support on his motorsport journey so far, and the young German driver has revealed the amount of respect he has for his fellow compatriot.

"I've got a great deal of respect for him," Schumacher said to Motorsport-Magazin. "We talk a lot about motorsport.

"I try to get tips from him and put them into practice. He's been in the sport quite a few more years than me, so every conversation we have helps. I think what my dad was to Sebastian, he is for me, someone that I'm close to, with whom I can talk about motorsport."
