Schumi: Mercedes Worse Than We Hoped Or Even Expected

Michael Schmacher has expressed the Mercedes team's disappointment with this years car after hopes had been raised in Barcelona pre-season testing were Schumacher topped the time sheets. The seven times champion speaking to Autosprint magazine:

"Overall, it's clear that the season up to now has gone worse than all of us had hoped, In fact, considering the good conclusion to winter testing, it's worse than we had actually expected."

"The fact that on the car we have several areas of work in progress, As long as we worry about solving those, the development of the project suffers at times."

"The positive thing about it is that this time we are able to take all these experiences and this knowledge towards next year. In fact I'm confident that we'll take good steps forward during the rest of this year. We have plenty of work to do, but we are prepared."

"All our attention is focused on building the team. That's what we focus on at the moment, with no exception nor limitation."

Schumacher had the best race since his comeback began a year ago, in a weather effected Canada GP where he ran as high as second before being picked off by the DRS passes of Button and Webber leaving him fourth.
