Nico Rosberg: “the battle is on”


Nico Rosberg insists that his championship challenge is still on track, despite having his lead over team mate Lewis Hamilton trimmed to just one point.

The German enjoyed a strong start to the season, winning the first four races, but one win in the last six races has seen his advantage shrink.

“It has been a very good first half of the season and leading the championship, so it’s been a pretty damn good start to the season which I’m pleased about,” said Rosberg. “I’ve had some good races, I had a good race in Austria which went wrong, yeah it can happen and then a good run out there in the dry today, well not so much in the beginning of the race, so there’s a lot of positives.”

Hamilton meanwhile has won all but one of the last five races, including a dominant performance in his home race at Silverstone last weekend.

“I’m feeling great and the battle is on with Lewis, I’m not counting points because it’s still such a long way to go and I don’t like to do that,” said Rosberg. “For me, the best thing is to win races, which is what I want to do at the moment, just focus on the races and don’t look at what is going to happen in six months’ time.”
