Hockenheim Mercedes targeting third row grid slot

23 July 2010

Back at home in Germany racing a Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 car for the first time, Michael Schumacher experienced a varied day on Friday. Slowed by rear wing problems in the morning, the 7-time World Champion finished sixth in the afternoon and now hopes to achieve at least the same by the time qualifying arrives.

With the rear wing issue having slowed the German’s progress in the morning, car damage kept him in the garage for the final minutes of the second session although Michael is upbeat, confident that Mercedes are moving forward.

“Today's sessions were a bit mixed due to the weather conditions but we were able to get the car working by the end, so it was a reasonable day,” he said. “One of my excursions caused some damage to the floor which led to a second excursion afterwards and we decided to stop slightly early this afternoon.

“We are looking reasonable over one lap and on longer runs, confirming what we already hinted at during the last weekend in Silverstone.

“If everything goes as it should tomorrow, we should reach fifth or sixth position, which is a step forward, and maybe even more in the race. But for sure, we will do everything possible to achieve a good result for our fans at our home race.”
