Rosberg ‘happy’ with team performance in Valencia
June 28, 2011
Mercedes GP Petronas driver Nico Rosberg expressed his delight following yesterday’s (June 26th) European Grand Prix after finishing in seventh place.
The 26-year-old German picked up six welcome points on the streets of Valencia to leave him in seventh place in the drivers’ world championship.
Rosberg was particularly pleased having got “everything out of the car” and was delighted with the team’s choice of a three-stop strategy.
He added that the introduction of the drag reduction system (DRS) made the race more entertaining and is now looking forward to the British Grand Prix in two weeks’ time.
“Now we need to keep pushing for our two home races to close the gap to the fastest teams,” he said.
“I’m sure the whole team will work very hard before Silverstone, and I look forward to racing in front of so many people from the team and their families.”
Rosberg’s teammate Michael Schumacher finished in 17th place.
