Britain Preview Quotes: Ferrari

Michael Schumacher: "After an encouraging test session at the English track, I am sure that we will be very competitive at Silverstone. We will have a few new parts on the car and that means we can be optimistic about the British Grand Prix. "You need a well balanced car on this track, even more so than at the Nurburgring. Every aspect of the set-up has to be perfect and getting it right is a real challenge. I like Silverstone as the track is interesting and it is always good to go and race there. In my opinion, the key parts of the track are Becketts corner and the slow section after Bridge, which is difficult to get right. The circuit has a long tradition in Formula One and that adds to its appeal. I go to Silverstone in optimistic mood, because we are well prepared for all eventualities."

Rubens Barrichello: "We are going to have some new aerodynamic parts for Silverstone, which is a positive step and the result of high mileage testing of these parts in Barcelona and Fiorano. I feel they will bring an improvement to the overall package. The key to a quick lap at Silverstone is having a very well balanced car, particularly as this circuit can be very windy, making it difficult to set up the car. Of all the tracks we race on, it is the one I know best since my Formula Lotus and Formula Three days. I know what to do there and I find it an exciting and challenging track. It is a chance for me to do well. I have seen a lot of stories in the press along the lines of 'Rubens is not doing well this year' and I disagree with that. I always try my best, I am not a sleeper. This year, the situation is tougher and we have occasionally started a bit further back on the track, so for me, Silverstone represents the chance to do it just right. I like going there, I'm feeling good and it should be a good weekend for me and for the Scuderia."
