Mick Schumacher set the record straight regarding a series of pictures of his father with children circulating on the web.
The images - shared by many fans on social media - purport to depict Michael Schumacher with son Mick and daughter Gina over the years.
The 19-year-old son of the F1 legend posted a message on Twitter warning people that the children appearing in the shots were neither himself nor his 21-year-old sister.
These photos are often published because they supposedly show me as a child with my father. To clarify: these pictures here do NOT show me, and neither do they show Gina. I'm sorry for the people in these photos. I can only appeal to all media to remove them from their archives. pic.twitter.com/EvbzjFUArl

It's anybody's guess who the children in the pictures actually are, but Mick Schumacher is obviously just as protective of his family's image and privacy as was his illustrious father.
In a recent interview with the FIA's official magazine Auto, the Ferrari junior opened up recently about his seven-time world champion father, how he inspired him to follow in his footsteps.
