Schumacher hoping for best in last F1 race
24 November 2012 – Sunday will see Michael Schumacher bowing out of F1 for a second time, six years after the seven-time World Champion originally did so at Interlagos. Back then, a problem in Q3 left him tenth on the grid. On this occasion, the German attempted a wet setup that failed because the track stayed dry. He dropped out in Q2 and will start 14th on the grid.
“Anyway, my starting position is now quite tricky and I will have to see what we can make out of it tomorrow. Of course, coming from where I am does not make it easy, but I will definitely try to fight my way up the field.”
Team-mate Nico Rosberg managed to crack the top ten. Both men are now aiming to end an embarrassing run of five non-scoring races for the Brackley-based outfit.
