Nico Rosberg has said that he is confident of beating his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton to the Formula 1 world title this season.

The 29-year-old finished second behind Hamilton in the drivers’ championship last year, and he admits that it took him a “few days” to get over the defeat before he could start looking ahead to the new campaign.

“Thankfully [the hurt] goes pretty quickly, it takes a few days and I get over it,” he told Sky Sports News. “In this case that was great, when it is successful it is not so great as you want to enjoy the moment longer, but it is quite short lived always.

“For me it was a new experience and I didn’t know how it would be, but it has been easy to switch off because it is not all about racing in the end. The biggest challenge first of all is to be my best – that is the first and most important challenge for me – and to be better than ever.

“Then the second challenge is going to be first of all trying to beat Lewis and then further more trying to beat all the other teams – we have no idea where we stand so we need to wait and see where we are.”

The new Formula 1 season will begin with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 15.
