Rosberg reckons Mercedes set to be strong in the remaining races of the season

Nico Rosberg, MercedesNico Rosberg believes Mercedes can look forward to the remainder of the campaign with some good optimism after his second place finish in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Despite struggles in the first two races of the campaign, Rosberg has been the highest scoring driver in the last four grands prix.

That has lifted confidence for the team ahead of venues like Canada and Valencia that should perfectly suit the W03.

"It is great to see how we are improving as a team, getting stronger and stronger," Rosberg said in his official video diary.

"In the last four races I am the one who has scored the most points, which really shows that we are quite consistent. That is why the future can look good for us in the next upcoming races."

Rosberg believes that Mercedes had the best car in Monaco, but the nature of the track meant it was not possible to overtake race winner Mark Webber to make the most of that potential.

Even so, Rosberg is pleased with the fact that he is just 17 points off the world championship lead after six races.

"Points wise we are looking good in the championship," he said. "I am really looking forward to Canada because a) I think we have a really good car for there and b) now my father cannot give me advice any more on F1 as I [will] have more experience than him, as I have done just as many races as him in his career."

Canada will be Rosberg's 115th grand prix start, with his father Keke starting in 114 races during his Formula 1 career.
