Schumi Proud To Be Racing Schumacher S

Michael Schumacher is looking forward to racing at the Nürburgring for the first time since his comeback. Prior to the 2007 Grand Prix their, the Audi S (bends 8 and 9) was renamed Schumacher S after the 7 time World Champion and Michael is looking for some added speed through them.

"It will be the first time that I race through the corner which is named after me (Turns 8 and 9), and obviously I would like to believe that this is not only making me proud, but also even faster.” says Schumacher.

Schumacher is feeling good about the weekend with the extra upgrades brought to Silverstone improving the car. He states “This season has been a difficult one for performance predictions so far; however I can predict one thing for sure: the extra boost we are receiving will be transformed into extra motivation.

"We saw some improvements over the Silverstone weekend with our new exhaust system, along with improvements to how we work with the tyres, so we go to the next race weekend with a good feeling added to our fighting spirit. We definitely want to show our home crowds our best level of performance possible."

Ross Brawn commented on how the team was working to further bring the best out of the new upgrades. Brawn: "Our car showed positive signs of improvement with the new upgrade package and exhaust system in Silverstone, and we have been working hard since then to further enhance our understanding of its performance capabilities.

"We are hopeful of continuing this progression and putting on a good performance next weekend, giving our drivers the opportunity to show what they can do in front of their own supporters."
