If he only had some guidance from his dad. Could you imagine a race with both the Sr.'s at the pit lane and the Jr.'s on the track? And a possible car incident!!!

Well done to Mick, he should take time and cherish this moment, then see the opportunities open to him.

Wrong wording I guess.

As far as we know Schumie Sr. is conscious.

Would he be aware though, I was assuming not?

Not sure. There were reports that he is, but who knows but a handful of people? I'm sure he'd be/is proud.

In that case it would be good to hear that he is aware of his surroundings. :thumbup:

There are reports he cries when he can hear his family's voices, I have to say I would find that extremely distressing!

Yeah, that's what I remembered, the crying bit. What a sad story

Indeed, I hope that's not like him being trapped in a hidden prison if true?

Unfortunately, while I am no expert on the subject, I believe there's a good chance that's exactly what it is. I know I've read stories of people waking up from comas and saying they were aware the whole time but unable to do anything about it. :(

Maybe best not to think about it? :(

“We are talking to some teams and putting together the best strategy for next year.” These are the words of Mick after having won the F3 title by 57 points. Am sure Ferrari is 1 of the teams.

Something in the back of my head is telling me that the Formula 1 fans are setting themselves and Mick up for a significant disappointment. If he does not win multiple WDCs people will be decrying what could have been. Most sons of great racing drivers do not go on to eclipse their fathers careers. Witness Michael Andretti, Geoff, David, & Gary Brabham, Nelson Piquet Jr., & Justin Bell. In the wider world of motorsports we also have Al Unser Jr., Marco Andretti, Graham Rahal, P.J. Jones, Kyle Petty, Dale Earnhardt Jr., & Davey Allison among many, many others.

The few drivers who have equaled or surpassed their famous fathers would be Damon Hill, Max Verstappen, Nico Rosberg, & Keving Magnussen. Certainly Jacques Villeneuve had a better career than his dad Gilles but who can say what Gilles would have done with a long career.

With Michael's seven WDCs and 91 wins, the bar is certainly set high for young Mick. I am not inclined to jump on the bandwagon in hailing him as the next great driver in F1 just yet.

Not for a 2019 F1 drive though.

Hamilton thinks Mick will be in F1 without doubt. Interesting points about the father-son thing. F1 is really the only sport that works like this. I think it's because it's so expensive to get into racing that the talent pool is naturally severely limited.

I don't think it's just F1 - I watch the National Hockey League, and there's sons of players showing up all the time. The difference is that since they're not taking one of only 20 spots on the global hockey roster available, they don't get anywhere near the same scrutiny.

(Drag racing is even more family-centered than F1, btw)

In the US circle track racing such as Nascar, Usac, and even Indycar is also very familty centered with second generation drivers getting the benefit of very early starts and high quality rides during their early years before they go pro.

Lots of sports. NFL has tons of father-son...heck, even grand father, father son lines running through over the years. Kids are exposed to it all early and get excited about it. Look at Kimi's son - he'd quite young and already all over motorsports.

I think there has to be a certain amount of heredity talent that gets passed down as well.
