Michael Schumacher has hit back at critics of his performances in his comeback season in Formula One.
Criticism of Schumacher reached new highs after the Canadian GP, where he was involved in incidents with Felipe Massa, Robert Kubica and both Force India drivers.
British TV pundits Martin Brundle, Eddie Jordan and David Coulthard were particularly critical; the former accused Schumacher of driving “appallingly badly”.
The Mercedes GP racer told PA Sport in Valencia he was “quite happy” with his performances so far.
“I don't think there are many guys around the world who, at 41, come back after a three year break and compete at this high a level,” said Schuamcher.
“I don't take them seriously because there are different elements to Formula One, and one part is showbusiness.”
