Mick Schumacher follows his dad, Michael, to the track
Mick Schumacher, 9, the son of the retired world champion race car driver Michael Schumacher, 39, has followed in his father’s footsteps and has recently taken to racing himself. Trying to race under the radar, Mick enrolled himself using his mother, Corinna‘s, maiden name, Betsch, (so as to not get any extra attention for being his father’s son), and was always accompanied by his grandfather, Rolf, instead of his famous father.
Mick seems to have inherited his father’s talent, placing tenth and eighth in two low-level races in Spain and has even been nicknamed "Schumi III" by the press and his fans. The nickname of "Schumi" goes to his father Michael, and Schumi II to his Uncle Ralf, Michael’s brother, who also races professionally.
