Former Ferrari driver Vettel is close to Schumacher and a trusted friend of the family, offering advice as an old hand in the paddock."We’ve actually been talking about it (the seat) before and I took the opportunity to show it to him," said Schumacher, whose team have yet to score a point this season and are last overall. headtopics.com

Asked why Haas had not fixed the problem, Schumacher said it was not that big a deal."It’s a small offset, it’s something that I’ve been used to, let’s say, also in junior categories," he explained."And to be fair it doesn’t harm me in any way when driving.

"For us it’s mostly about trying to get everything ready for the weekend and being prepared on that level and maybe setting our focus on something else instead of wasting it on something that is maybe not affecting me right now." Read more: CNA »
