Mixed emotions in Mercedes GP garage, home boy Michael Schumacher tomorrow start from third on the grid, but his team-mate and also fellow citizen Nico Rosberg tomorrow start from a long way back at 21st place.

Disappointed Nico Rosberg says that bit surprising to finish so far down in qualifying. Nico added that tyre not get exact temperatures when he ran with intermediate compound in Q2.

“It’s a bit surprising to finish so far down in qualifying today, but unfortunately I couldn’t get the right temperatures in my first set of intermediate tyres in Q2 so I was a few seconds off the pace. “ Rosberg said.

“Yesterday I was quite confident in the wet and in the dry so it is frustrating, especially on top of the gearbox penalty. But I will still hope to score some points tomorrow because a lot is possible in the races this year. I will definitely push a lot in front of all our fans here.”

Mercedes GP team principal Ross Brawn felt positive things, he was explained that basically the car was quickest in both condition dry and wet. He added more about that Rosberg initially set second fastest with prime tyre that time Schumacher was too struggled. When rain was started Schumi boost the performance Nico fall down to back position.

“It was a very eventful qualifying today but the positive thing was that our car was fundamentally fast in both the dry, intermediate and wet parts of the session. Nico was the second fastest prime tyre runner in Q1, but when the rain came, he struggled to generate temperature in his intermediate tyres.” Said Brawn

“In those conditions, once you lose tyre temperature you never get it back, so we certainly missed the window with him. Michael did an excellent job in Q2 and Q3; he wa`1s fourth fastest, will start P3, and could potentially have been even further up. But we can be satisfied with a second row start in such tricky conditions.” He added.

Mercedes Motorsport vice-president, Norbert Haug explained the home grand prix qualifying – “The conditions were extremely difficult during the qualifying session today, probably the most challenging of this season so far. Michael coped well and posted a top four qualifying result for the sixth time in ten races. Nico suffered from a lack of grip owing to less-than-ideal tyre temperatures and has to start from a long way back. After the wet qualifying, the weather forecast predicts a dry race tomorrow.”
