Michael Schumacher finally happy with car's handling at Shanghai

Michael Schumacher, MercedesMichael Schumacher says he has finally got his hands on a car that allows him to enjoy the Shanghai circuit, after securing a spot on the front row for the Chinese Grand Prix.

The seven-time champion will start alongside Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, and reckons the performance had changed his opinion of Shanghai.

"If you don't have a balanced car it [Shanghai] is a nightmare and probably this Silver Arrow is the first car that handles very good here," he said.

"So I have started to like the track a little bit more this year compared to the previous years."

Schumacher said that it was fairly obvious he was enjoying F1 much more now, having delivered his best qualifying performance since Japan 2006.

"It is natural when you are in difficulties you know what it needs to get out of that," he said.

"It needs patience and focus. That is what we all had and now we take the fruits from all the work and effort we put in. Naturally you are more happy at the front end, where we are right now."
