Rosberg hails ‘great car’ after secure the Japanese pole

Nico Rosberg beat teammate and championship leader Lewis Hamilton to pole for Japanese Grand Prix as Mercedes come back to superior role in qualifying.

Rosberg and Hamilton were preparing for their final stint flying-lap in Suzuka when Daniil Kvyat suffered a huge shunt in his Red Bull.

Following the qualifying Rosberg expressed his happiness, and says “Very happy, great day today, good comeback also for the team”

“It’s fantastic after such a difficult weekend in Singapore to be back to our normal strength today, a strong performance today from the team.” The German continued

“Great car, so very thankful for that. The team really turned things around and optimised things for this track.

“As for me, I pretty much nailed my laps so really pleased with the way that it went. Great position to be for tomorrow.”

“At times today I had the perfect car for sure, and that’s why it was a great pleasure to drive it. Suzuka is the ultimate track and to have a good car here is just awesome.”

“I’m sure the track was surely not as good, not much rubber down there, and beyond that I’m not sure what the reasons are,” he added.

“But as for everybody we didn’t have the perfect preparation so there may be a few surprises tomorrow.”
