Schumacher Switches Focus To 2011

1 Mins read

Michael Schumacher has admitted he is turning his focus to the 2011 season already in light of his lowest race classification in Valencia two weeks ago.

In a career which has seen Schumacher record a total of 91 wins the 15th place at the European Grand Prix marked his worst ever F1 result.

It’s been a tough time for the German who last year was penciled in to replace the injured Felipe Massa, but ultimately failed in his comeback due to a shoulder injury sustained in a motorcycle accident.

Asked about his thoughts for the rest of the season he admitted: “I’m not really thinking about the championship any more, that’s unrealistic from my point of view considering the points I have,”

“So all we do, from my perspective, is try to learn as much as we can and prepare for next year. That’s what I’m fully motivated on.”

“I have been in all sorts of circumstances in my career and don’t worry, I don’t suffer at all about this in a way that removes my motivation,” Schumacher said.

“I put in as much effort as ever and I drive on a level that I can be happy with.”

He added: “Considering where we’ve been it’s difficult to see it getting worse,”
