Schumacher looking ahead to Valencia
Michael Schumacher says both he and his team have vowed to cut out the mistakes and get his season back on track.
The German has struggled so far this year and has been forced to retire on five separate occasions, due to a number of mechanical errors.
His lack of form means he now sits a lowly 18th in the Drivers' Championship, having only managed to finish two races in 2012, a stark contract to team-mate Nico Rosberg who won in China and is currently fifth in the standings.
However, the seven-time World Champion has now drawn a line under his early season problems and says he and his team are doing all they can to give him a chance of success at next week's European Grand Prix in Valencia.
"Our entire focus is now on the race in Valencia, and I am sure that everybody's motivation is even stronger because the weekend in Canada didn't go as well as we had hoped," said Schumacher.
"Our motto in the last few days has been to roll our sleeves up and focus on the job in hand; everybody in the team has taken that approach to heart, so we can travel to Valencia in an optimistic mood."
