Schumacher clears up confusion over photos of Michael and children

Mick Schumacher has moved to clear up confusion surrounding historic pictures of his father Michael Schumacher that supposedly show the seven-time world champion with either Mick or his daughter Gina Maria. The teenage son of the Formula 1 legend says neither he or his sister are pictured in the images often shared in historic posts.

F1 legend Michael Schumacher has not been seen publicly in more than five years after suffering traumatic brain injuries in a skiing accident while on holiday with his son in 2013.

The 50-year-old lives at his family home in Switzerland, although details of his condition remain shrouded in mystery as the Schumacher family continue to enforce the privacy that Michael himself allowed the family to live with during his career.

Mick has gone on to follow in his father's footsteps, embarking on a motorsport career that has put him on the brink of graduating to F1 at the age of 19.

Schumacher Jnr won European Formula 3 last year and will take part in Formula 2 with Prema Powerteam in 2019.

Further bolstering his F1 credentials, Mick recently signed to Ferrari's Driver Academy and is expected to make his debut at an official F1 event at this year's in-season tests.

Such is the hype and interest in Mick's career, it often drives attention back to his childhood, with images of Schumacher Snr and his children so rare.

And Mick took to social media to reveal that images often credited to be of him or his sister are, in fact, nothing of the sort.
