Schumacher: We're building up to something big

Michael Schumacher: I am very confident that this season we will be standing on the podium much more regularly; ideally in the middle!

Mercedes man Michael Schumacher is confident he will be able to get on the podium this year.

Schumacher struggled somewhat last season on his return, following three years on the sidelines, but the German remains upbeat and having improved as 2010 progressed, the 42-year-old now can't wait to get back behind the wheel.

“Finally the waiting is over and things get started,” he said after the unveiling of the new MGP W02. “For us drivers, the break every year is hard to take because the gap between the last race and the first time out on track seems to be never-ending.

“Even if I have been involved and updated all winter on the developments, and even if I know the improvements are significant, it is still different to see the new car literally for the first time in front of you.

“You automatically build up this nice pre-start tension. I very much look forward to the new season. We have said it several times already but again, we are really to building up something big together.

“I am very confident that this season we will be standing on the podium much more regularly; ideally in the middle!”
