Michael Schumacher returned to the points in the British Grand Prix but was still left frustrated by another below-par showing on his return to F1.

Having failed to score in either Montreal or Valencia, Schumacher was hoping to get his season back on track at Silverstone and the German looked like securing a good slot on the grid after making it through to Q3. However, his pace in the final stage of qualifying was only good enough for tenth place.

While team-mate Nico Rosberg raced to a podium finish in the home race for the Brackley-based team, Schumacher struggled to tenth ninth place and while that saw him pick up points, the seven-time champion was far from pleased.

"Again a race which I am not really happy about today," he said. "It was ok and seeing Nico on the podium is good for the team but my race was obviously less rewarding. I was in traffic for most of the race and did not really have a clear track.

"After the pit stop where I had to push really hard to make it in front of Rubens, I unfortunately made a mistake out of a slow corner which put me off the track. That cost me a lot of time plus two positions and that was it for today. We now look towards Hockenheim where we obviously will do everything to perform in the best possible way."
