Hockenheim, preview – Michael: “Give everybody a reason to celebrate next weekend”

“People often ask me whether there is any such thing as a home advantage in such an international sport as ours” Michael says ahead of his home Grand Prix. “My answer is: perhaps not a home advantage, but certainly a home-race feeling.

As a German driver, you naturally have a different sense of excitement when you arrive at the German Grand Prix and know that all the spectators in the grandstands are supporting you. That makes you proud, and always boosts your motivation even higher.

This year is the first time that our Mercedes works team has been capable of racing right at the front, and because of that, we're hoping for lots of support from the fans and to reward them with our performance. Hopefully we will see a lot of Mercedes colleagues in the grandstands, and we want to do particularly well for them. We have set ourselves the clear target of giving everybody a reason to celebrate next weekend.”
