Schumacher focused on race pace

Michael Schumacher is pleased with his "good achievement" after securing third position in his Mercedes during qualifying for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The seven-time world champions says the team have had to make "compromises" to increase their chances in the race after much attention had been paid to their pace over a single lap because of an innovative aerodynamic feature.

Schumacher, a three-time winner around the Sepang International Circuit, says the team have "paid a lot of attention" to their race strategy and believes tyre degradation will be the "toughest thing" for drivers to cope with during Sunday's Grand Prix.
