Michael Schumacher's son reveals the F1 legend is a huge fan of famous Scots singer | The Sun
FORMULA ONE legend Michael Schumacher is a fan of one of Scotland’s most well-known singers, according to his son.
Mick Schumacher revealed in an interview that his dad used to love listening to Paisley-born singer Paolo Nutini.
The 23-year-old racing ace said he regards Last Request, released in 2006 on Nutini's debut album These Streets, as the first song he fell in love with due to his dad playing it.
Speaking to NME magazine, Mick, who currently races for Formula One racing team Haas, said: “I remember listening to [Paolo Nutini – Last Request] with my dad.
“I really enjoyed his singing.
“He’s [Michael] a big fan of many songs but that was one of the songs we listened to back in the day.”
Mick also revealed that the first song he remembers hearing when he was younger was F**k You by Lily Allen.
He said: “I was a child when it came out in 2009 and I was small and I remember I wasn’t allowed to say the lyrics.
“I had to say f you.
“I first heard it when I was in the car with my family.

“We had just been to a Lily Allen concert in Switzerland where I got to meet her.
“I remember it well because I didn’t have to look so far up because she’s not that tall.
“It was great because I thought ‘finally, someone I can talk to'."
Mick also told how a Scottish duo’s song is constantly stuck in his head after he first heard it in his team’s garage before racing in Belgium.
He revealed how LF System’s Afraid to Feel is a song that will sometimes come on in the Haas garage before a race as the mechanics change who plays the music weekly.
Asked what song he would like played at his funeral, he said 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 motor racing and followed in the footsteps of his famous father and seven world championship winner, Michael.
In December 2013, the German racing legend suffered a severe brain injury during a skiing accident in the French Alps.
He was placed in a medically induced coma until June 2014 and is now back home in Switzerland with his family.
Since the horrifying incident nearly nine years ago, Michael, 53, has lived an extremely private life – with very few updates on his health.
