Schumacher not looking at next year.

“Yes, I have been a bit on the unlucky side, but you see we're a team, we are one big family and we win together and we lose together, it's part of it. It's probably that that [Brawn] wants to talk about. But, no, I don't feel at all disappointed – if anything, it's the reverse. I'm more motivated because of how much progress we have made and I can see the future progress that we can make and that's what is much more in my focus.”

Bad fortune will continue to dog Schumacher in Monaco, as the German starts with a five-place penalty for his involvement in a collision with Bruno Senna that ended both drivers' race in Spain a fortnight ago, but he believes that he can overcome the handicap, despite the Principality not being the most overtaking-friendly circuit on the schedule.

“I think we're going to be in a position to be competitive,” Schumacher claimed, “As a general track profile, I think it's going to suit [us]. Indeed, I have been coming from the complete back and gone forward to fifth position, I think. Let's see from where I finally manage to qualify and start the race and what can be done.

“It is certainly not ideal, but it is what it is and I look forward to it. I'm going to have some excitement pretty certainly.”

schumacher and Stoner are both very good at what they do and both seem intelligent, I personally dont really know why some people dont like them or more to the point find it necessary to mention they dont like them, they are in motor sport not politics, get over it!
