Schumi: Bring on Hockenheim

Schumi: Bring on Hockenheim

Michael Schumacher has already turned his attention to the German Grand Prix after a frustrating race at Silverstone.

After starting P3 on the grid following an impressive showing during a wet qualifying session on Saturday, but things didn't go so well on the Sunday as he finished seventh in the dry.

The 43-year-old Mercedes driver was overtaken by a host of drivers, but there wasn't much he could do.

"We achieved what was possible for us today, and we have to be satisfied with that," the German said.

"We were pretty competitive towards the end of the race, but overall we knew that the characteristics of this circuit wouldn't suit us in normal conditions - we definitely could have done better in the wet.

"Even so, we managed to score a few points, which can be important for the team."

Next up is his and Mercedes' home race and Schumacher hopes things will go much better for the team.

"Our attention now turns to Hockenheim, our next home circuit, where things should look better in any case," he said.

"I can only say to all motorsport fans that we are counting on your support. Like always in Germany, it will be a very special weekend, and we want to celebrate it together with them. So make sure you're there in Hockenheim!"
