Rosberg: It's Coming Together

Q: Another amazing race performance today - you just dominated them

Nico Rosberg: Wow, that sounds strange to me even when you say it to me now! Amazing - that sounds beautiful! Before the race I was a bit shaky because of the start, but even there we found something that helps us a lot, so we are just really getting it together now. We found another thing for the race today, and that helps the race a lot, and it's just coming together really well.

Q: You got the fastest lap on lap two, and then kept pounding around at almost the same pace for the entire race. What do you put it down to?

Rosberg: Well, we've just really improved the car race by race, and it's really at a stage now where I must say it's working really well, and that just also makes it really good for me to drive and it improves my driving because I can really get an extra bit out of myself. It's just fun - you can really feel it under you, and you just go for it and go up to the next level.

Q: And it worked - you didn't have anyone near you all day.

Rosberg: Yeah, and we did a pitstop that was a bit on the safe side, but I knew we had a good gap so I just told myself to chill out and take it easy, and it was no problem at all.

Q: Because you had nobody near you, how did you manage to keep the pressure up to keep running so fast?

Rosberg: It's just fun, you know? It's fun to go at the limit, it's fun to go for it, and you just keep on doing it. And you don't look behind! You just go flat out - it's the best way to do it - you just for it, flat out!

Q: And it's clearly fun to be leading the race, looking at you now.

Rosberg: Yeah, but it seems to take bloody ages! The thing never wants to stop - you look at your pit board and think it will say two laps to go, and it's twenty four!

Q: With the level of power your car has got, what do you think is going to happen tomorrow?

Rosberg: Tomorrow's going to be very interesting, I think, because we're really quick - I'm just going to try and get a good start and then be careful with everything. And then maybe, I don't know if it's possible, but maybe just try and work my way through the places. I'm sure it's going to be fun, overtaking like that, and we'll see if it's possible. But the race is longer now, so we've got a better chance to move up, so we'll see.
