F1 Canadian GP: 'I tried to pull one out the bag' - Rosberg

Nico Rosberg: My first lap in Q3 was good [though], not quite enough to beat Lewis, but it was still a good lap and the next one I tried to pull one out of the bag and it didn't work and that is it, so second place...
Nico Rosberg has admitted he was probably trying a bit too hard on his final lap in qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix, although he is adamant he can still win from second on the grid.

Rosberg was fastest in the first part of qualifying, but was then edged out by pole sitter and team-mate Lewis Hamilton in both Q2 and Q3, although there was very little in it.

Indeed the difference was just 0.062secs following the top-ten shoot-out and Rosberg and Hamilton both then failed to improve on their second runs, with the former suffering a big lock-up into Turn 1.

“I was hoping you hadn't seen that one,” Rosberg said. “But apparently it has come out on the TV [feed].”

“My first lap in Q3 was good [though], not quite enough to beat Lewis, but it was still a good lap and the next one I tried to pull one out of the bag and it didn't work and that is it, so second place,” he continued.

“Still a good team result of course, again to show we are the fastest and the fastest car again, which is great even on this unique track here.”

Looking to the race, Rosberg also added he thinks anything could happen, particularly as the weather is so unsettled.

“For tomorrow everything is still possible and the weather forecast is all over the place,” he confirmed.

“From second place it is all doable.”
