Schumacher steers clear of revealing title hopes

6:53 am on 27 March 2010

The seven times Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher is refusing to divulge his personal goals on his return to the circuit after three years in retirement, as he fears they could come back to bite him.

The German's in Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix after finishing sixth at the season-opener in Bahrain, one behind fellow German and Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg.

The 41-year-old says he's satisfied with that and wouldn't elaborate on his aims for the season.

He says he doesn't feel the need to say what he hopes to do so reporters can come back at the end of the season and tell him he was much worse than he said he'd be.

Schumacher says while he's mainly there for the enjoyment, at the same time he wants to win and admits to being a little bit addicted to the challenge.
