Nico Rosberg says Austrian Grand Prix he felt almost like being at his home race in Germany and also preparing for next month’s British Grand Prix on the top.
The German starts behind the Pole-sitter Felipe Massa, and lifted place on the top race after the first round of pit stops and perfectly finished ahead of Lewis Hamilton and extended the title lead.
“That was an amazing weekend for us here. It was so great to be back again in Austria – for me, it felt almost like being at my home race in Germany! This is a great track, with amazing fans and at the end also with a great result for us. I have to thank the team for a great car and a perfect strategy.” Rosberg said.
“We chose the aggressive way to pit earlier and to overtake the Williams that way and that worked out quite well. We had to look after our brakes, which was a big job for the whole race.”
“Also this worked out perfectly for me. Before the weekend, my target was to extend the lead in the championship, which I achieved. So I can be quite confident before the next home race for our team in Silverstone. A great job also from Williams, they were the second force today. Congratulations to them.”
