Schumi: 300 and counting

Michael Schumacher is hoping to mark his 300th grand prix start with a "strong race" at Spa.

The seven-time World Champion's Formula One history is linked to Spa in many milestones as it was at the Belgian circuit that the German made his grand prix debut back in 1991.

A year later it was also the venue for his first race victory and it was where he claimed his maiden World Championship triumph.

Thus it seems only fitting that it is at Spa that the Mercedes driver will become only the second in F1 history to reach the 300th grand prix mark.

"Spa is like my living room; for me, it's clearly the number one race track in the world," said the 43-year-old.

"It's uncanny how I always seem to have special moments there - my debut, my first win, a World Championship victory and many great races.

"The fact that I will also take part in my 300th grand prix at Spa was somehow almost inevitable and we will have to celebrate it in the right way.

"I'm proud to be just the second driver in the history of the sport to reach this milestone and there's no question that we are looking to have a particularly nice weekend.

"We delivered a good performance in Spa last year; I'll be doing everything possible to drive a strong race."

It's Go, Go, Go In Belgium
