Nico Rosberg is betting on the start at Spa

Despite Nico Rosberg's good performance in practice for the Belgian GP, ​​the driver Mercedes failed to stop his teammate's series of poles Lewis Hamilton. « Lewis was too fast. He was able to find that little extra that I didn't have in my pocket.", recognized the vice-world champion at a press conference in the Spa-Francorchamps paddock.

If the German is obviously disappointed to have been beaten with a delay of almost half a second, he is counting on the new starting procedure, where pilots will no longer have assistance, to gain the advantage. “With this new situation at departures, where we will have to do everything ourselves, there will be many more opportunities tomorrow. We also know that overtaking is possible here and my hopes remain very high”, said Nico Rosberg, who certainly remembers his clash with the Briton on this circuit in 2014, which earned him criticism from his team.

But Nico Rosberg seems more be concerned about the performance of the tires following an incident experienced during testing where a tire exploded for an unknown reason, Pirelli claiming not to be responsible. “The problem is that we don’t understand where this could have come from”, insisted the Mercedes driver. “We have theories but no real evidence and that’s obviously a bit worrying.” We are keeping a close eye on the matter and have taken steps to ensure this does not happen again. We hope this will work and there will be no more worries. »
