Mick Schumacher shares which of Michael's trophies he cherishes the most

Although Michael Schumacher won numerous trophies throughout his storied career, you may be surprised which of them Mick keeps closest to him.

Mick Schumacher will begin his Formula 1 journey with Haas in 2021 as he looks to carry on his family's legacy, but the youngster revealed it isn't Michael's biggest triumphs that left the biggest impression on him.

The reigning F2 champion will make the step up to F1 in an attempt to carry on the legacy left by his father and uncle Ralf. Nobody is expecting early success from Mick however, as he will join Haas in an attempt to improve the American team's fortunes after they amassed just three points in 2020.

While Michael has a trophy cabinet that few can match, Mick revealed that his most treasured possession is a cup his dad won in a rental-kart race that he's had in his room since he was six.

"A little cup that I was given by my dad, which he won in a rental-kart race," he told Formula1.com. "I've kept it since I was six and it's always been in the perfect spot in my room. It's the most important trophy that I've got, and I didn't even win it!"

It's no surprise that Mick picked out his father as his racing hero, not just because of what he achieved on the track, but also because of how he kept his feet on the ground.

"My dad!," Mick continued. "I definitely look at what he achieved and I try to learn from it. He's been the benchmark for so long and for me he's still the benchmark, so I'll always refer to him.

"That's on the sporting side, and on the human side I'll always admire how his consistency across all those years and how he kept his feet on the ground. That's something I appreciate very much, but also something I can learn from and carry through my career."
