Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg were in Frankfurt, taking part in the launch of the Mercedes DTM. Thoughts are already drifting towards next season in Formula One circles too, with both drivers hoping their team can show further improvement.

Michael Schumacher said, "Well the last two races certainly were much more exciting for us, particularly the last one - it worked out pretty well for us battling with the front three teams and having our portion of success by the end. Concerning the rest of the season, that's a little bit more difficult - we will have some upgrades but naturally the other teams do so, so it will be interesting to see whether we can use the hype that we have taken from the last two races and take it over for the last six races."

Nico Rosberg said, "Yes, the last two races have been good as a team because we looked a bit stronger which is nice. But I think for the rest of the season it is going to be quite difficult and we are going to try and do the best we can but don't expect too much, we don't expect race wins or anything. Also as a team we need to start concentrating on building the car for next year because next year we want to attack."
