Rosberg looks forward to landmark race
July 29, 2011
The upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix will mark the 100th of Mercedes GP PETRONAS driver Nico Rosberg’s career – and the young German will be hoping to mark the occasion with a special performance.
Rosberg explained that he was surprised to have reached the landmark so quickly given that his father, the 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg, spent his entire career amassing just 114 races.
Looking ahead to this weekend’s race, Rosberg said: “I’m looking forward to the weekend in Budapest as I like the Hungaroring very much and I’m hoping for a better time than in 2010 when unfortunately I didn’t finish the race.
“We need to work on our race set-up to see what improvements we can make as the car that I had in qualifying in Germany was better than the one that I had in the race.”
Rosberg currently occupies seventh position in the Drivers’ Standings, three places above his more illustrious team-mate Michael Schumacher.
