Schumacher confident he can land another ride A dismal 2007 season has done little to dampen Ralf Schumacher's hopes of getting behind the wheel of a Formula One title contender again. "To call it a tough year is a very nice description of it," the disgruntled Toyota driver told Reuters on Tuesday.
"I just want to finish off the season. It's true I have been talking to other teams.
"I won't be more specific than that -- right now I want to get the last few races over with."
"When I joined Toyota I knew it was a very big task but it has not developed the way we expected," said Schumacher, who won six races with Williams before joining Toyota in 2005.
"To be honest, things just haven't happened. We expected points and podiums but we didn't make it. Still, the possibility is there and anything can change in Formula One."
"The expectations are high again for this weekend at the Japanese car giant's Fuji Speedway circuit because Toyota owns the circuit," he said. "We just have to hope for a good weekend."
"It doesn't make life easier," said the 32-year-old.
"But I've been in the sport a long time and people know me. I'm still pretty good at it, so it's not a problem."
Asked if he is confident of securing a ride with a championship contender in 2008, he smiled, and said: "Oh yeah, very. It won't be too difficult."
