The racing ace, who is currently competing for Haas, remembers the first tune he ever heard as a kid.

He recalled driving through Switzerland with Michael, his mother Corinna and sister Gina-Maria as they listened to Lily Allen.

The family had just seen her live singing to her 2009 hit “F**k You” from her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You.

Speaking to NME magazine, Mick explained: “I was a kid when it came out in 2009 and I was little and I remember not being allowed to say the lyrics.

“I had to say ‘F you.’ I first heard it while sitting in the car with my family.

“We were at a Lily Allen concert in Switzerland, where I got to meet her.”

The little pop fan shared how the memory was etched firmly into his brain because the British singer was just 5ft 2in tall.

Mick added: “I remember it well because I didn’t have to look up that high because she’s not that tall.

“It was great because I thought finally someone to talk to.”

And it seems the father and son often enjoyed bonding over racetracks – both on and off the track.

The German went on to reveal that seven-time world champion Michael has a soft spot for one of Scotland’s most famous singers.

The 23-year-old admitted his dad loved listening to Paisley-born singer Paolo Nutini.

Mick said: “I remember listening [Paolo Nutini – Last Request] with my father. I really enjoyed his singing.

“He is [Michael] a big fan of a lot of songs, but that was one of the songs we were listening to at the time.”

Another Scottish duo have now had their eardrums satisfied too, as Mick revealed LF System’s Afraid to Feel is stuck in his head.

He explained that the song is occasionally played in the Haas garage before a race because the mechanics rotate who plays the music on a weekly basis.

When asked what song he would like to play at his funeral, he told Bobby McFerrin’s Don’t Worry Be Happy.

He added: “I just want people to be happy at my funeral. It should be more of a party than a sad occasion.”

Mick has pursued a career in motorsport, emulating the path of his famous father Michael.

In December 2013, the German racing legend suffered a severe brain injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps.

He was placed in a medically induced coma until June 2014 and is now back home with his family near Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

Since the horrifying incident almost nine years ago, Michael, 53, has lived an extremely private life – with very little news about his health.

However, it is reported that he has been receiving medical care costing up to £115,000 a week.

Little information has been released, with reports that Schumacher remains in a wheelchair and is able to react to things around him.
