June.17 – The German young driver Nico Rosberg is confident that Mercedes GP can bring in Valencia an even stronger than it put on in Canada, following team-mate Michael Schumacher just missed out on a podium finish.
“Valencia is always a very interesting weekend,” said the German. “The track is a combination of a real circuit and a street circuit so the walls are very close to the cars, and you really have to concentrate around every one of the 25 corners. I really enjoy driving there, and it’s a big event in a pretty cool city. I visited the factory this week to see everyone, which was nice, and it was good to see how the work is progressing.
“We’re working hard for a better result in Valencia than in Canada, and I’m very confident that we can make this happen.” Team principal Ross Brawn concedes that its car still needs more pace, but he sees no reason why it cannot be up there near the front again. The last race in Canada saw a positive weekend for the team, and whilst we still need to work on the ultimate pace of the car, it was encouraging and rewarding to be fighting for a podium finish again,” he explained.
