Mick Schumacher is looking to make his mark in F1 this season with the German sharing what advice his father Michael gave him when he set his sights on making it in the world of motorsport.
The youngster is still searching for his first points in the series since making his debut for Haas in Bahrain. While not much is expected from Mick this season, he still remembers the advice his father gave him which will no doubt help him as he pushes for F1 success.
"The most important thing he told me was to enjoy what I do," Mick told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "Seeing me put that into practice was very important for him.
"If you love what you do, you will do it well."
Mick also shared what Michael told him once he made it clear that he wanted to make racing his career.
"I was with my father, I remember it well," Schumacher continued. "We were at go-karting track in Kerpen. We were talking and he asked me if racing was a simple hobby or something I wanted to take seriously.
"I was clear with him that it was something serious. Both he and my mother have always backed me with that decision."
As for the opening two races Mick is pleased with how things have gone, though there is always room for improvement.
"I was happy with how things went in Bahrain, outside of my spin," said Schumacher. "Let's say I was 90 percent satisfied.
"At Imola it was the first time I was driving an F1 car in the wet. I spun there as well but I got mad at myself, partly because I was in a good position at that point.
"However I made it to the end which was my goal."
