While being pleased with the overall performance of the Mercedes GP W01 – team-mate Nico Rosberg topped the timesheets in P2 and he being third-quickest – Michael Schumacher admits he has work to do on single flying laps.

At least there’s some area he can improve on! We were all thinking he was superhuman!

Schumacher Bahrain GP Practice

Schumacher’s best time in the second practice session was just half a second slower than Rosberg’s 1:55.409.

“We worked very well this afternoon after having a few issues with the balance this morning," Schumacher reported. "The car felt much better in the second session although I am still a little rusty on one lap runs and need to get back into the routine.

"On the long runs, the car felt good and once you get into the rhythm it feels very natural. I’m happy with our work today and am feeling ready for the weekend."
