Schumacher blames car trouble for lackluster performance in 2010

Article by Christian A., on December 6, 2010

Michael Schumacher believes that he will be at the top once again in 2011 – if Mercedes gives him a competitive car. Schumacher told reporters in Germany that the team has received “immense support from Mercedes" and that it all goes well, it can win races.

However, he said to Autocar that it cannot assume that the team will be “fighting for the championship."

He said that in 2010, his car has been encountering problems while that of his Mercedes' team-mate Nico Rosberg has been virtually trouble-free.

He enumerated that he had experienced his floor burning due to a very hot exhaust or the F-duct working in unusual places. He also explained that his lackluster performance in Singapore was due to the fact that he and his team-mate were five degrees apart on the front wing.

He said that at Spa, his car’s F-duct didn't work but he had not said anything. He also disclosed that the same thing happened at Suzuka.

Schumacher said that he has already asked motorsport chief Norbert Haug and team principal Ross Brawn to explain these problems. Nonetheless, he believes that there will be no more problems such as these in 2011.
