Nico Rosberg’s quotes after qualifying – 2016 Canadian Grand Prix

  • Lewis took his 53rd Formula One pole position today – his fifth at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.
  • Nico completed a fourth Silver Arrows front row lockout of the season in P2 – less than a tenth shy of his team-mate.
  • Both drivers completed two runs in Q1, Q2 and Q3, using the UltraSoft Pirelli tyre compound throughout.

Nico Rosberg: Even if I just missed out on pole, the front row is still a good position to start the race tomorrow. Today, Lewis was just a little bit quicker on the first flying lap, so I gave it an extra push on the second run to close the gap – but I got it wrong and had a lockup at the first corner. With no time for a second lap, that was the chance gone. Nevertheless, there will be a few opportunities to overtake Lewis in the race. I’ve made some good starts recently which is a positive – and also with tyre strategy it could be worth trying something different. It should be exciting either way, as the weather forecast is interesting for tomorrow. I’m excited in any case. Canada is always a special one, so I can’t wait for the race.
