Rosberg: Hockenheim should suit us

Nico Rosberg: Hockenheim has long straights and short corners, which will be good for the Silver Arrow.

Nico Rosberg reckons Hockenheim should suit Mercedes better than Silverstone and he has promised to push 'really hard' for a good result.

Rosberg had a dismal time last weekend in Britain, finishing down in 15th place, something that brought to an end a run of six consecutive points' finishes. The German is eager now to bounce back and is determined to try and do well on home turf.

“Hockenheim is always very special for us, and especially for me. I was born in Wiesbaden, near Hockenheim, and I have really good memories of the previous Hockenheim races. Before my F1 career, I won quite often at this circuit, and I will never forget my father's last DTM race in 1995,” Rosberg recalled.

“I joined him on the roof of his car driving through the Motodrom - and that was the moment when I thought to myself 'How cool is that?!' and decided to become a racing driver like him.

“I will be pushing really hard to perform well in front of our fans in the Mercedes Grandstand, so we can hopefully celebrate a good result together. I think our car should suit this track much better than Silverstone.

“Hockenheim has long straights and short corners, which will be good for the Silver Arrow,” he added.
