A highlight for motorsports fans at the annual festival was the son of the iconic Michael Schumacher getting behind the wheel of his father's F1 car.

Mick would wear his dad's helmet and 2011 race overalls while driving the W02.

Michael Schumacher won a joint-recorded seven F1 championships with Benetton and, more famously, with Ferrari during his heyday in the 90s and early-2000s.
