Nico Rosberg: I need to raise my game

Nico Rosberg has admitted that he needs to find another level of performance if he is to beat Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton to the 2015 world title.

While Rosberg is now just 10 points adrift thanks to back-to-back wins, his victory in Monaco was inherited after Hamilton’s late pit-stop under the Safety Car.

Moving on to the Canadian Grand Prix, which Hamilton has won on three previous occasions, Rosberg is well aware of the title challenge that lies ahead.

“I still can’t quite believe I was standing on the top step in Monaco for the third time the other week. It was all very surreal and I don’t think I’ve ever been so lucky,” said Rosberg.

“However, that weekend also showed that I need to raise my game even further in the battle this year.

“I’ve got the boost of two wins behind me now, there is a long way to go this season and I know there is more to come from me personally, so it’s all to play for.

“Next up it’s Canada, which was a really difficult race for us last year but an exciting one too.

“Hopefully we will avoid the traps that caught us out last year and it’ll be another good battle.”
