Michael Schumacher has revealed he is hoping to race a new W01 chassis as soon as possible.

For the whole of his formula one comeback so far, the seven time world champion has driven the 2010 car designated '01' by Mercedes GP.

He qualified 8 tenths behind his teammate Nico Rosberg on Saturday, and on Sunday finished ninth while Rosberg drove to the podium.

"I was hoping to get a new chassis at Hockenheim as I have been driving the current one for a long time," Schumacher told German Sky television after the British grand prix.
