on

Sept.02 – The German Nico Rosberg is confident that Mercedes GP can generate one more strong performance in next week’s Italian GP, following delivering its best team result of the season in Belgium GP.

Last race in Belgium, Mercedes duo Rosberg and Michael Schumacher finished in the top six for the first time this season and, with their W02 compatible to the high-speed nature of Italian circuit, they are optimistic about their prediction for the next race.

“I’m really looking forward to the weekend in Monza. We learned at the last race in Spa that our car can be competitive at high-speed tracks, and we definitely took a step forward there. Rosberg told Autosport.

“I am confident that we can do that again in Italy next weekend. I visited the factory this week and I’m quite happy with how things are working out there.”

Schumacher said: “We achieved a good team result in Spa last weekend, and I especially enjoyed the overtaking battles and the challenge of making up so many places during the race. This gives us a boost going into the final part of the season, and we will continue pushing hard to get the best possible results.”

Mercedes GP Team principal Ross Brawn said that the team had cause to be positive heading to Monza, as it bids to further cement its fourth place position in the constructors’ championship.

“Coming off the back of our best result of the season in Spa, we are looking forward to the weekend and to finishing the European season on a high,” he said. “With the emphasis jointly on engine power and aerodynamic efficiency, we have the benefit of our Mercedes-Benz engine and, as always for Monza, we will run a special low-downforce aerodynamic package to minimise drag on the long straights.”
