The German duo hardly ever spends time together on race weekends; most of the cameras watch the two of them, who are chatting intensely as they wander around the paddock. During the bizarre Belgian GP last year, Schumacher and Vettel even spent their time playing football in the Aston Martin garage.

In the midst of the increasing bromance, Mick Schumacher revealed that he would often go out to dinner with the four-time world champion if they couldn’t find time in the paddock. He also joked about Vettel’s establishment of a good restaurant network.
