F1 US GP: Pace setter Rosberg not feeling the heat

Nico Rosberg leads the way in Texas, but says the windy conditions make it difficult to draw conclusions ahead of qualifying.
United States Grand Prix – Free practice results (2)

Nico Rosberg has played down the significance of the lap times following free practice for the United States Grand Prix despite topping the leaderboard at the Circuit of the Americas.

The Mercedes driver trailed his team-mate and title rival Lewis Hamilton following FP1 but would hit back to end the day a comfortable three tenths up in FP2.

However, Rosberg was unconcerned by the results on day one, insisting the Texan venue's notorious swirling winds and changes in temperature could make it difficult to apply the lessons learned to qualifying.

“The running of the car was different between P1 and P2 because of the temperature; it was very cold when we ran this morning,” he said.

“The weather also had a bearing on the balance of the car as it altered as a consequence of the changing wind direction around the track. It should be different tomorrow because the weather is going to change again, as it does frequently here in Austin, and it means what we learn today might not necessarily help us for Saturday.”
