The Cologne tabloid Express publish photographs of 9-year-old David Schumacher, the nephew of seven time world champion Michael, at the wheel of a competitive go-kart.

Michael's 12-year-old son Mick also races go-karts: "Let's see where Mick himself wants to take it," Mercedes driver Schumacher, 42, said a few years ago.

David races for the team headed by Schumacher-discoverer Gerhard Noack, who also spotted Sebastian Vettel's talent many years ago.

Said Ralf: "Whether he wants to do motor racing seriously one day, I leave it to him. I will support him completely even though it's a hard world full of tough people.

How could a father who has lived that world forbid his son?

"How could a father who has lived that world forbid his son?"

David's mother Cora added: "I am really happy that he has found a sport he really likes. He often follows the races with Ralf.

"We'll have to see if he has the same passion for it in the coming years."
