This is where the championship begins, says Schumacher

Before the start of the San Marino Grand Prix week-end, Michael Schumacher reflected on his team's situation:

"Imola is important in many ways this year: first of all it is our home-race, which naturally makes it a race that we want to show a good performance at. This year, the start of the European leg of the season is also somewhat of a new beginning for us: we want to begin fighting for the championship title again now, and we believe that our chances are quite good.

"The Grand Prix of San Marino has always been a good turf for us. I have a lot of fond memories of this circuit, and I'm quite confident that there are more to come. Our F2005 has the most important requirement: it is fast enough. We saw that when our car made it's debut at Bahrain. We were unable to finish the race, but I think that we've solved that problem during all the extensive testing we did last week.

"The circuit at Imola is especially demanding on the brakes and the gear-box, but that's manageable. Just like most of the other teams we have new aerodynamic-components on the car and spent most of last week preparing especially for this race. I'm confident that we can fight to win - and I'm absolutely sure that everyone at Ferrari will do their best. We're all looking forward to our home-race and to our Tifosi's support."
