Mick said: “I think dad and me, we would understand each other now in a different way now. 

“Simply because we speak a similar language, the language of motor sport. And that we would have so much more to talk about. That's where my head is most of the time. Thinking that it would be cool that would be.

“I would give up everything just for that.”
