Michael Schumacher is still motivated despite uncertainty over future


Michael Schumacher insists he is looking forward to this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix despite the prospect of being without a drive next season.

It was announced last week that the 43-year-old will be replaced at Mercedes by Lewis Hamilton for 2013 after the Briton opted to end his 14-year association with McLaren.

"My motivation is completely intact after the news last week, especially because Suzuka is one of the season's highlights for me," said Schumacher.
