Nico Rosberg says he will take his perfect performance in the Spanish Grand Prix as a 'positive boost' for the coming rounds as he looks to kick-start his F1 title intentions.

Having been comprehensively out-performed by Lewis Hamilton in the first four rounds of the season, Rosberg hit back with a classy performance in Spain, comfortably qualifying on pole position before leading from lights-to-flag with relative ease.

A result that helps halt the momentum of his team-mate and reduce the margin to the front to 20 points, though Rosberg plays down the assertion that he tried something new in Spain, he says it is nonetheless a 'boost' going forward.

"I didn't really do anything differently, it was the same approach, he said. "I am always modifying a little bit and seeing what the rest of the approach is, but it is always the same. It all just came together this weekend.

"It started with qualifying, I got the right balance, got the laps nailed and then just nailed the start and the race. It was a great weekend. Nothing has really changed and now this gives me a really positive boost for the time coming up."
