Ralf Schumacher says the idea of two Schumacher's on the Formula 1 grid once again is a "wonderful dream".

Ralf and Michael raced together in F1 in the 90s and 2000s, and now 17-year-old David - a Formula 4 rookie of the year in 2018 - is preparing to move into F3.

Kolner Express newspaper says David is testing a F3 car at Sepang this week.

When asked what it would be like to see two Schumacher's competing again in F1, former Williams and Toyota driver Ralf said: "That would be a wonderful dream.

"If if comes true for both of them, it would be incredible, mega," the 43-year-old told the German broadcaster RTL.

However, Ralf admitted that it is far from a certainty.

"We all know there are not enough places in F1, and the closer you get to it, the thinner the air," he said.
