Michael Schumacher has rolled his sleeves up over the last few days in a bid to emerge from his mid-season slump.
Schumacher has been plagued with issues and retirements that have resulted in the seven-times champion scoring just two points from the opening seven races.
In the Canadian Grand Prix five days ago it was a sign of the times for the 43-year-old that he was forced to retire when the DRS wing on his Mercedes was stuck in the open position due to a hydraulics fault.
Languishing 18th in the championship, Schumacher is determined to put his woes behind him in next weekend’s European GP in Valencia.
"Montreal is forgotten and our entire focus is now on the race in Valencia," said Schumacher. "Our motto in the last few days has been to roll our sleeves up and focus on the job in hand."
