The world champion, who has racked up 11 wins in 12 races so far this season, has found his momentum interrupted by the current three-week interval.
But Schumacher admits the break is necessary to give time off to the rest of the team.
He said: "I would gladly put an end to the summer break.
"But for the engineers and mechanics, the break is a hard-earned blessing. Their hard work in the past weeks means their family has come second.
"Our victories are the reward, but they also needs a couple of days to recharge the batteries.”
Schumacher believes that the grind of race to race is harder on engineers than the drivers.
He explained: “It is not as bad with drivers. Ferrari are very good with us and pay attention to the correct balance between work and relaxation.
“The team has an intelligent test plan so we do not become physically and intellectually too tired.
"But honestly said, I am pleased that I now also have a couple of quiet days with Corinna and the children."
