Canada 2011 brought one of, if not the, best race of Michael Schumacher’s second career in F1. The Mercedes driver ran in as high as second position before being passed by Jenson Button and Mark Webber to drop back to fourth. Heading back to Montreal, the seven-time Champion has more reasons to be confident.
On the 44th race weekend of his F1 comeback, Schumacher grabbed provisional pole position in qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix; this became sixth place on the grid after the German took his five-place penalty for hitting Bruno Senna in Spain. He now crosses the Atlantic with high hopes for the Brackley-based outfit.
“The Canadian Grand Prix is all about the great atmosphere at the track and in the city,” says Schumacher, who won in Canada seven times between 1994 and 2004. “The Canadian fans make the whole weekend into a real celebration and, for us drivers, it's great to feel their passion for motorsport; that gives us a natural boost and it would be great to give them even more reasons to celebrate at the end of the weekend.
“The race in Montreal is usually action-packed, like we saw last year. The characteristics of the circuit should suit us and we are counting on our car performing well there. As I said, a trip to Montreal is always worth it. Let's hope we can make our trip this year especially worthwhile.”
Schumacher is in particular need of a strong result at Round 7, as for a variety of reasons he had notched up only two points so far in 2012.
