As Michael Schumacher gears up for the penultimate race of his F1 career, the German insists he will still give his "best" out on track.
Formula One is heading to Austin, Texas next weekend for the United States GP, the last time Schumacher will experience a F1 track for the very first time.
And the Mercedes driver is excited about the new venue.
"I'm really excited to see what kind of track we will find and to see if the American fans will embrace our sport," said Schumacher.
"From the pictures and layouts of the circuit that I have already seen, everything looks very good.
"I think Formula One will put on a good show at the Circuit of the Americas, and naturally I will be giving my best to be a part of that."
As for his team-mate Nico Rosberg, the 27-year-old is aiming to score at the "cool" Circuit of the Americas.
"It will be very exciting to race in the USA again and I'm really looking forward to our visit," he said. "The United States Grand Prix should be a great event and a real show for our American fans.
"I can't wait to drive on the Circuit of the Americas track for the first time in practice next Friday. I spent some time practicing on the simulator at the factory this week so I know what to expect and, as a team, we are as well prepared as we can be from our simulator work.
"The track looks cool with a great double S section to begin the lap and it looks like there should be some good opportunities for overtaking.
"We really want to end the season on a positive note so we'll be aiming to score some points next weekend."
