Nico Rosberg’s quotes after race – 2016 Belgian Grand Prix

nico rosberg belgian grand prix

  • Nico today took his 28th career pole position – his second at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and sixth of the 2016 season so far.
  • Nico completed a single run in Q1 (Soft) and Q2 (Soft), a further two runs in Q3 (SuperSoft / SuperSoft).

Nico Rosberg: We had a difficult weekend until Qualifying. Especially, this morning we were thinking that we were off the pace a bit. So I was really happy to grab pole today. The Red Bulls were quickest on the long runs on Friday, so we need to be at our best to beat them. The tyres are a big challenge in the heat here this weekend. The degradation is very high. My disadvantage at the start is that I have a harder tyre with lower grip, so Max should get off the line quicker on the Supersoft. I reckon that, with some luck and a maybe a Safety Car, Lewis can climb up to the top very quickly, so he can’t be ruled out either. In any case, I’m pleased with my qualifying and looking forward to tomorrow. It will be an exciting and intense race.
