Spanish Grand Prix pole-sitter Nico Rosberg hints that he is still careful over the Sunday race pace following Mercedes scored their third consecutive pole position for this season.

The German out-qualified his team-mate Lewis Hamilton and securing his third career pole and second for this season.

Rosberg still concerned about Mercedes race, last race at Bahrain the Mercedes duo struggled with tyre degradation and balancing difficulty. But little bit confident that team improved in conditions of its tyre management.

“It has just been working really well all weekend, we’ve optimised everything, after what we saw in Bahrain it is nice, but we cannot be over confident when we’re thinking about the race result. Rosberg said.

“We’re surprised to be that quick, but it was a good qualifying and a good lap in the end, so I’m really, really happy with that. It’s a good boost for the team, the front row is fantastic but of course we have to be a bit cautious after Bahrain.”

“The team has been working really hard to be even better, understanding how to get the most out of these tyres, we were a bit behind in Bahrain, and we come here and there are issues again, this time it is more degrading of the tyre, so here catching up and making the most of the situation, we have improved. He added.

“This morning was better so I am a little bit more confident. Still tomorrow is going to be a challenge.”
