Nico Rosberg’s quotes after free practices – 2016 Austrian Grand Prix

nico rosberg austrian grand prix

  • Nico Rosberg finished both sessions in P1 with Lewis Hamilton finishing both sessions in P2.
  • A time of 1:07:373 from Nico Rosberg in the morning session saw him set a new fastest lap of the Spielberg circuit.
  • Both drivers ran the super soft and ultra soft compound tyres in the morning session. In the afternoon Nico ran the intermediate, super soft and ultra soft tyres, while Lewis ran the soft, intermediate and ultra soft.

Nico Rosberg: There are some changes to the circuit this year with the new asphalt and kerbing; from my point of view those changes are pretty cool and it’s still a really enjoyable track to drive. The new asphalt seems to be suiting our car quite well, maybe better even than the old tarmac, but tyre usage will be the decisive factor this weekend as we saw quite a lot of graining during our dry running. In the wet this afternoon, I found a good balance with the car, so overall I’m pretty happy with our first day.
