“to be Compared with the best F1 pilot in history is a goal that you want to reach. And that's happening now with my idol, my father, is very special”, says the Schumacher junior across the BBC. “An honor, because I'm still learning and try to be better.”
Talent he has already. The young German crowned himself last year to be the champion in the Formula 3, and is driving this season in Formula 2 for PREMA Racing. “The transition is not so very large. It is more the understanding of the Pirelli tyres (which are ‘carefully’ drive require, red.). That is perhaps the hardest part in this class.”
Schumacher was at the beginning of this year included in the Driver Academy of Ferrari, and performed in the footsteps of his father. “Ferrari has all my life an important place in my heart and in that of my family. I can learn as much from this renstal. I want the maximum out of my career.” To emphasize: Schumacher starts next week F2 championship in Bahrain (29-31 march).
