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

nico rosberg monaco grand prix 2016

  • Nico Rosberg will start tomorrow’s Monaco Grand Prix from second position, with Lewis Hamilton lining up third.
  • A fuel pressure problem on both cars at the beginning of Q3 meant that Nico’s first run of the final session was delayed, while Lewis was forced to stop at the end of pit lane before being recovered to the garage and re-starting.
  • Both drivers completed two runs in Q1 and Q2, with Nico completing two runs and Lewis a single run in Q3 – all on the UltraSoft tyre.

Nico Rosberg: I was really surprised when Daniel set his first quick lap in Q3. I thought “damn, that was really quick!” I tried my best to top that and was able to come a bit closer – but unfortunately it wasn’t enough for pole. Red Bull and especially Daniel did a great job here today. Congrats to him on his first pole position – I’m sure it will feel special for him to have got it here in Monaco. But tomorrow there are still a few opportunities for us to win this race. At the start, Daniel is on the harder tyre with a lower grip level, so I hope to maybe gain something there. When I was on the harder compound in China, he caught me at the start – so I hope it’s payback time tomorrow and I can overtake him. I’ve been practising starts a lot over the weekend, so it could be exciting. I can’t wait to race again on this amazing track.
