(SOUNDBITE) (English) F2 DRIVER MICK SCHUMACHER SAYING: "I am part of the Ferrari Driver Academy this year which for me in the step I am now, so the F2 step, is very positive.
I can learn so much from Ferrari because they have so much experience.
And so that is going to be a point where I want to work with them to be achieving the maximum I can.
The first impression that I had from Ferrari were so heart opening, welcoming me in a family which was always part of my family so I guess the combination of both was very, very positive, and yeah, I am very happy." STORY: Mick Schumacher, son of seven-times Formula One world champion Michael, has revealed he loves being compared to his father.
The 19-year-old, who will compete in Formula 2 this season and is part of the Ferrari Driver Academy, has his heart firmly set on following in Schumacher Senior's footsteps.
Speaking in a video filmed by his Formula 2 team, Prema, he described his father, who hasn't been seen in public since suffering a serious injury in a skiing accident in 2013, as his 'idol' and the best driver in the history of Formula One.
Schumacher Snr drove for Ferrari winning five world titles in a row between 2000 and 2004.
