THE fact that the son of the greatest driver to ever grace Formula 1 is a gun behind the wheel is almost a no-brainer.

Mick Schumacher, son of hospitalised seven-time champion Michael, has begun following in his father’s footsteps with a sensational rise through Formula 3, culminating in a stunning purple patch of form in recent weeks.

The 19-year-old Prema Powerteam driver took pole position for six races in a row and won five, outed only by F3 Prema teammate Robert Shwartzman at the Red Bull Ring in Austria over the weekend.

Schumacher’s hot streak sealed him the 2018 championship, shutting out fierce rival and rising Red Bull star Dan Ticktum in the process.

And Ticktum, 19, wasn’t too pleased with the son of Schumi’s “interesting” late season demolition.
