When Nico Rosberg missed out on the 2014 Formula 1 world title to Mercedes team-mate and childhood friend Lewis Hamilton, the German vowed to work hard and come back stronger.
Rosberg could take heart from some impressive performances, including victory around the streets of Monaco and on home soil at Hockenheim, as he controlled the championship from late May to mid-September in what was his first season as a genuine title contender.
"I saw glimpses of success last year and I want to make it happen this year," said Rosberg at Mercedes' first press conference of 2015 in Melbourne. "It's my dream to be F1 world champion." He went on to eloquently talk about how, at 29, he is not yet at his peak of performance. He was saying all the right things.
