Michael Schumacher is a better driver than Lewis Hamilton, says son Mick and he's happy to be compared to F1 legend | The Sun

MICK SCHUMACHER believes his dad Michael is the greatest of all time and admitted he's OK with comparisons between the pair.

The 23-year-old is aiming to follow in his father's footsteps and become an F1 champion.


Haas driver Mick's dad Michael is a seven-time world champion – tied with Lewis Hamilton who also beat his legendary 91-race win record.

Yet the German claimed his old man remains the best after insisting that he understands the constant comparisons with the 53-year-old.

Speaking last year to Bild, he said: “I’m OK with that, all the questions and comparisons with my father do not bother me.

“For me, he is the all-time best in this sport, to which he has given his all. I don’t see why I should disregard that.”
