Age just doesn't seem to be a problem for the youthful 41 year old Michael Schumacher. The Formula one legend is back on home turf this coming weekend when he drives his Mercedes round Hockenheim at the German Grand Prix.

Schumacher won for Ferrari on his last appearance at the circuit in 2006. Schumacher's best finish this season so far has been fourth place both in Spain and Turkey but he's hoping for a podium spot in Hockenheim in front of a massive home crowd.

Schumacher said, "We are coming to Hockenheim being the German team and wanting to deliver results. I think it is optimistic to expect race wins because we are not yet in the position but we might be able to have a nice podium again and hopefully the weather plays well not only for us but for all the fans that are going to come along over the weekend."
