Felipe Massa hopes that Ferrari can carry its race-winning Silverstone form into the Nurburgring, a track he has enjoyed success on in the past.
Ferrari's competitiveness in the British Grand Prix was masked slightly by the diffuser rule changes, but the Scuderia has brought further changes to Germany and Massa is confident it can be competitive once again.
"We brought a good amount of parts to Silverstone and it was the first track where we have managed to use the hard tyres well," Massa said.
"We did a good job there, being competitive in all situations. Here we have another small update and I hope we can be on the pace of the best again this weekend."
Massa is also counting on Ferrari's strong previous form in Germany, having finished on the podium at the Nurburgring in 2009 and at Hockenheim in 2010.
"Two years ago, the last time we were here at the Nurburgring I finished third," he added.
"In fact I have had many podiums with Ferrari at the German Grand Prix and I like this track, so even if the win is what we are always aiming for, another podium would be a good result on Sunday.
"I think a podium in the German Grand Prix, racing for Ferrari - I hope we can continue like that. It's a track I like, and I hope we can see a very good competitive fight here like we saw at Silverstone."
