The German had produced the best performance of his career in qualifying in Montreal, when he lined up sixth behind his teammate Kevin Magnussen.

He then looked to take his first points when, running in a comfortable seventh position, he was hit by a power unit issue which sidelined him on lap 18.

After recent incidents and amid growing pressure to perform, Schumacher is aware of the importance of his early points.

“It’s obviously very frustrating, but these things happen,” he said. “It’s F1, everything is quite nervous.

Schumacher explained that the race was going well until his power unit issue, as he was steadily increasing his pace to get used to the change in conditions from the wet Saturday.

“So obviously I was trying to find the new grip limit when the conditions were very different. We were just getting into a rhythm and I’m sure there was more to come.

“It’s always hard to accept these things. Obviously it’s probably more difficult if you’re in a paying position and have to give up the car when you’re seventh or whatever. It’s never the best, but that’s the way it is. »
