Fifty-three years, eight of which spent in silence, suffering and struggle. Michael Schumacher’s birthday is an opportunity to remember a driver who really does not need any further celebrations. The career, the numbers, the records and the legacy he left in Formula 1 speak for himself. His legacy is also hereditary, because his son Mick made his debut this year among the greats of the sport, exactly 30 years after Kaiser Michael’s first Formula 1 race, when he impressed the whole world at Spa aboard a Jordan, the car in which he replaced Bertrand Gachot for a weekend. Enough to impress the sport with his talent.
Mick dreams of retracing his dad’s footsteps. But for the moment his first first Formula 1 season was much more difficult: the Ferrari Driver Academy member will have to follow a different path to make the most of his talent. One thing is certain: in all the laps he will cover, the #47 will carry with him the teachings of his father, which he paid homage to on the occasion of his birthday:
“Happy Birthday, Dad ❤️ Days like these were important to my growing passion for Motorsport, and still affects it to this day. I am grateful for all the experiences you have given me and I’m excited to be making new ones in the future” – Mick Schumacher wrote on his Instagram profile.
