Rosberg celebrates best result yet

Nico Rosberg hailed his best result to date in Formula One, as his Williams team celebrate their fourth place in the constructors' championship.

Rosberg, whose previous best result was sixth, ended Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix in fourth place and gave his Grove-based team five more points.

The result enables the outfit to stay ahead of Red Bull Racing, who did not score any points today.

"I am very happy," said the young German. "This is a super result for the team, and for me, because fourth is my best result in F1 so far.

"Thanks to my engineers who improved the car a lot throughout the weekend, their efforts definitely helped me out in qualifying and then in the race.

"My strategy was very much on the limit; a heavy fuel load on the second stint was really tough on the tyres and I was struggling a bit, but I could make up the pace with my last set which were good.

"The pressure was on today because everything was on the line, the Constructors' position for the team and my position in the Drivers' so I am very pleased with the outcome.

"The best thing is that this race was my personal best result, which means I can go into the winter happy - that's going to be fun!"
