The British Grand Prix is fast approaching, and while all eyes are on the British trio of Jenson Button, Paul di Resta, and Lewis Hamilton, there’s no telling who’ll really come out on top. Mercedes AMG Petronas is clearly going to do its best to score a win behind drivers Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher. Here are some quotes from them as a preview for the upcoming race this weekend.
“Racing in Silverstone is a special moment every year,” Schumacher said. “It’s quite simply the home of motorsport and I’m always amazed by the knowledge and enthusiasm of the British fans—as a racing driver, it’s great to experience this passion for our sport.
“We have already seen plenty of races this year that turned out differently to the expectations before the weekend,” said Schumi when asked of the team’s chances for this year’s race. “Of course, we want to take the momentum from our result in Valencia and put on a good show in Silverstone, especially because this is one of our home races. It goes without saying that we want to give everybody in Brackley and Brixworth a result to be proud of this weekend.”
“My best result on this exciting track was third place so, of course, I will be hoping to top that but it’s so hard to make any predictions of performance this season,” added Rosberg. “It’s a demanding track with a lot of high-speed corners dominating the layout, especially from Copse through Becketts to Stowe. It’s difficult to know how good we will be but I’m hopeful that we can achieve a good result.”
