Germany's seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher cut a happier figure after his sixth place at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday than after an abject performance a fortnight ago in Turkey.

The 42-year-old had another impressive start moving from tenth up to sixth place, and said he was pleased to have held his position but admitted that he had struggled with his car's setup.

"We managed to make the most out of our possibilities today which is good news, especially for our guys who I am happy for," he said. "I had a good start; going right through the middle was tight but fortunately it worked out. Then the race was about holding position from there. "We can be happy with the result but other than that, it was just tricky with oversteer, tyre degradation and poor balance to deal with," he added.
