Q: How much did you involve the team. Was there any discussion or was it
your decision alone?
MS: The team left me every opportunity and every door open. Obviously I
have a lot of friends there and naturally we discussed the up and the down sides
and so on, but in the end of the day it was Corinna and myself.
Q: Mr Schumacher I have a question: may I get you for a one-to-one
MS: Nice try. Promised it already.
Q: (Marco Evangilisti - Corrriere dello Sport) Kimi, are you somehow
concerned at taking the place of the most winning driver of all time?
KR: Not really. It's a nice place to go and of course the team will expect
a lot but in the end I also expect a lot from myself and I want to win and this
is different again to McLaren where there was Mika world champion twice and
wasn't easy then and it will not be easy this time and I will go there and do my
best and hopefully it will be enough for everybody.

Q: (Livio Oricchio – O Estado de Sao Paulo) Michael, do you have an idea
what you are going to do with your life?
MS: I said before, no,.part of it will be to keep a relationship with
Ferrari and we will talk about that before the end of the year but now the focus
is on the last three races so now will look after that.
问：（Livio Oricchio – O Estado de Sao Paulo）迈克尔，你想好了你以后会干什么吗？
Q: (Matthias Brunner – Motorsport Aktuell) Michael, there was one part of
the unilateral that I didn't quite understand when you said you first waited for
the decision about Felipe before then making up your mind. What did you mean
MS: Maybe it was misunderstood. I said that he had a point of decision
around that time that he had to go and he needed to know from my side what my
decision was going to be -- at that moment my future was to retire so there was
a chance for him to negotiate.
Q: (Bob McKenzie - The Daily Express) Michael, you look competitive at the
moment with no sign or any deterioration in your driving. Was there any thought
of going on for another year against Kimi and to see how it went?
MS: Well you can see what I am able to do now. It was not really a thought.
You need all the energy and motivation and strength and getting older does not
make it easier. And to keep that for a whole year and go on. I just could not
see that I had this. I had no need to worry for anybody, I guess, and I thought
it would be nicer at this point than when you are at the other end.

Q: (Bob McKenzie - The Daily Express) How much discussion did you have with
Corinna and did she support your decision?
MS: It is natural with the relationship I have with Corinna that we discuss
every little thing and the good thing as I mentioned before is that without the
support of my family and in particular Corinna all these years I don't think I
could have done it so naturally she supported me in my decision as well. She
gave me her point of view and we discussed it, but there was no time when she
went in another direction. She simply helped me take my decision.
问：（Bob McKenzie - The Daily Express）你和科琳娜讨论了多少？她支持你的决定吗？
Q: (Michael Schmidt – Auto Motor und Sport) Michael you said it became
harder to find the motivation and the energy to be at the top level…
MS: That is not true… I can see it becoming harder. I don't see I am going
to have that in future.
问：（Michael Schmidt – Auto Motor und Sport)）迈克尔，你说过要找到向巅峰奋斗的动力和精力要难了一些？
Q: (Michael Schmidt – Auto Motor und Sport) Well what is it that takes the
most energy out of you? Is it the traveling? Is it the pressure? The
expectations of the people? What is the toughest to take?
MS: I don't know and I don't really want to think about it too much. If you
forgive me, it is not really a good time for me to enter into every little
detailed area of my decision and answer these questions because – and I hope you
can understand me – I really want to focus on the championship. I think I gave
you basically what I am pretty sure of and I tried to express myself as well as
I could. But I don't think I really want to, from now on, go any deeper into

Q: (Heikke Kulta – Turun Sanomat) Kimi, three years contract with Ferrari…
How quickly do you expect to become a world champion?
KR: I have been expecting it to happen already so you never know what will
happen but for sure we try next year again and hopefully we can do it, but there
are so many things that can go wrong or right so we just need to work as hard as
we can and I have full confidence that the team will give me a very good car so
we will see what happens next year.
问：（Heikke Kulta – Turun Sanomat）基米，你和法拉利签了三年的合同……你期望自己多快能成为一位世界冠军？
Q: (Takeharu Kusuda – Lapita Magazine) Mr Kubica, can you tell us about the
key to your success in getting a third position in your first year?
RK: What key? I have a good car, a competitive car, we didn't make any
mistakes choosing the tyres as we have done in Istanbul. We had good ones for
qualifying, but not for the race and this time I concentrated with the team to
choose the right tyres for the race and the key I think was qualifying. I could
qualify better, but unfortunately I made some small mistakes at Lesmo, and for
us anyway third row was really good with the tyres that we had and we knew we
had a lot of fuel compared to the others and with the good start that we always
had in Hungary and in Turkey I hoped to win some positions. We won more
positions at the start than we expected and then it was just to keep the pace
and the pace was good. Maybe the second and third stint could have been quicker
but you know when you are third and there are still some laps to go and you are
third in the third Grand Prix of your life you are not pushing really, you just
want to stay on the track and to bring the car home to the finish line and I
think it was a really good race for me and for all the team and we were not
expecting it. Some of my team told me they wanted to see me on the podium before
the car went to the grid. I took it like a joke, but it happened so we are
really proud of it.
Q: (James Deakin - F1 Racing) Michael, seven times world champion, every
conceivable significant statistic you've got, any regrets? Anything you wish you
MS: Yes, sure I have them. But I am not in the mood to go through them
问：（James Deakin - F1
Q: (Stephane Barbe – L'Equipe) Michael how much do you think you will be
distracted in the final three races by this decision?
MS: I don't think the pressure is going to be high, as I told you, I
explained and expressed myself and if you understood me then you know that what
is most important is the championship. I will keep every focus to that and
everything that has to be done to do that I will do. I am not getting into this
subject any more. I will express myself once here this weekend and then I am not
talking about it anymore I am just going to be focused.
