Rosberg: Our cars race in any condition

Nico Rosberg edged Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton by a tenth of a second to claim pole position for this afternoon’s United States Grand Prix. The German took his fourth pole of the season with his Q2 time as heavy rain once again disrupted running and led to the final part of the session was cancelled.

Following the Q1 and Q2, track conditions was changed a lot, more rain and were considered too dangerous, thus the decision was taken not to continue with Q3.

Q2 resulted Rosberg takes his spot alongside Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton. Both Red Bull cars followed, with Daniel Ricciardo in third and Daniil Kvyat in fourth. The pole sitter Nico posted a 1:56.824 in Q2, just over a tenth clear of teammate Hamilton at 1:56.929.

“Obviously a really good qualifying. I was very comfortable with the car,” Rosberg said during the post-qualifying press conference.

“It was difficult out there with aquaplaning. You just really struggle to have control of the car. It’s been quite challenging.

“But I did a good lap with a used set of tires, which was good. Q3, we had a new set to go.”

“For the race, we have no idea. It was supposed to be drying out,” Rosberg said.

“But who knows. Our cars race in any condition. The weather is fine with me.”

The German go into the race down 73 points to team-mate Hamilton, with only a slim chance of remaining arithmetically eligible for the World Title.
