Schumacher feeling 'extra motivated' for Indian GP

Michael Schumacher: For the next race, we are heading to India for the first time; a country which a lot of people tell me is fascinating. I'm looking forward to experiencing this new culture and seeing the track for the first time.

Michael Schumacher has said he is feeling 'extra motivated' ahead of the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.

The Mercedes man failed to finish in Korea last weekend, when he was taken out by Vitaly Petrov on lap 15.

Despite that disappointment though, the German described the incident after as 'unfortunate' and 'a pity', he is not dwelling on it and is now looking forward to travelling to India and tackling the new Buddh International Circuit.

Indeed he will be keen to add to his current 60 point tally and notch up his tenth points' finish of F1 2011.

“For the next race, we are heading to India for the first time; a country which a lot of people tell me is fascinating,” Schumacher said ahead of the 17th round in the championship.

“I'm looking forward to experiencing this new culture and seeing the track for the first time. I am sure we will be impressed with what has been done there.

“There has been a lot of interest in the build-up to the event, and therefore hopefully we will entertain a lot of new fans in India.

“I've always been happy to welcome new tracks on the calendar and enjoy the challenge of adapting to them.

“The outcome of the last race in Korea was unlucky for us, therefore I am extra-motivated to score some points next weekend, and reward the good work of the team.”

In all honesty, probably not gonna happen this year unless there's rain and mayhem. But I don't doubt that we are seeing the beginning of a real threat from MS and Merc in 2012. Looking forward to it.
