When found ten minutes after the agreed time, Jack Doohan immediately apologizes. “Sorry, I was with my friend Mick (Schumacher) » These two have known each other since childhood. Having a father who is a multiple world champion in motor sports brings us together. It's also no surprise to see Jack and Mick pursuing careers in the same world as their fathers. “It would have been even harder if I had decided to ride two wheels, puts Jack into perspective, whose father Mick Doohan is a five-time 500 cc motorcycle world champion (3-1994). Being his son is more of an opportunity than a burden, I am so grateful to him for opening the doors to this environment for me, even if it was then up to me to fully commit myself to the path. He is my father before being my mentor. I sometimes forget that he was 5 times world champion. The more time passes, the more I try to draw inspiration from his journey, to question him, because he experienced what I am experiencing today. He gives very good advice
