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

nico rosberg qualifying chinese grand prix

  • Nico claimed his 23rd career pole position – his second at the Shanghai International Circuit and first of the 2016 season.
  • Lewis suffered a problem with the MGU-H during qualifying that could not be resolved during the session and prevented him from completing a timed lap.
  • Nico completed two runs in Q1 (Intermediate / SuperSoft), one run in Q2 (Soft) and two runs in Q3 (SuperSoft)

Nico Rosberg: It’s great to have my first pole of the year. It’s always best to be able to start your race from the front and I’m very happy to have that opportunity again. Of course, it’s not good that Lewis’ car broke down and a shame that we couldn’t battle for pole. We definitely need to investigate this as a team but, in any case, I’m sure he will fight his way through the field tomorrow. I made a few mistakes on my first effort in Q3 but my final lap was pretty good. Saying that, Kimi said he made a mistake on his last lap, so with that in consideration I don’t believe the gap is as big as it seemed on the timesheet today. On Friday the Ferraris were on the same level as us, so we must be prepared for a strong challenge from the red cars. In the race we could see some surprises. There will be a lot of different strategies, so there’s a long way to go yet. But I’m feeling good in the car and looking forward to a battle.
