Michael Schumacher had no complaints with his Belgian GP result on Sunday, which his wife, Corinna, had predicted would be a good one.
Schumacher celebrated 20 years in Formula One at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit this weekend as it was here that he made his F1 debut back in 1991 and a year later claimed his first grand prix victory.
However, after qualifying it didn't look as if it would be a good weekend for the German after he crashed out in the opening minutes of the Saturday afternoon session, putting him at the very back of the grid.
But, as Schumacher said after qualifying, the only way left was forward and forward is where he went.
The seven-time World Champ was P15 by the end of the first lap and continued fighting his way up the order, making good use of the power of his Mercedes engine around the Spa track.
Three laps before the end of the grand prix, sitting on his team-mate Nico Rosberg's rear wing, Schumacher overtook the younger German to claim fifth place, his best result of the campaign.
"I'm happy about the result," said the seven-time World Champion.
"It was a good battle with my team-mate Nico Rosberg. I was on the softer tyres while he was on the harder tyres and it gave me the chance to overtake him.
"This is a special weekend for me and although it wasn't too good yesterday, luckily it finished well.
"I had a good feeling earlier in the day my wife is here and she said it would be a good race."
