Nico Rosberg has conceded that it was far from easy to get the set-up right on Friday during practice at the Nurburgring, as heavy rain and strong winds made the going tough.

Speaking following the two sessions and after ending free practice two in seventh, the German added though that they definitely learnt a thing or two that should help them during the remainder of the European Grand Prix weekend.

"It wasn't easy to find the right set-up today," confirmed the Williams man. "It was especially difficult in the afternoon because it was very windy and the rain before the session took a lot of the rubber off the track.

"I'm not completely happy with the car, but we tested a lot of options and we've definitely learnt a few things. We therefore have some good ideas on how we can improve it in time for tomorrow's qualifying. Tyre-wise, this weekend could be very interesting because the weather is making the selection very hard."

Alex Wurz meanwhile, who was twelfth quickest in both sessions in the other Toyota-powered FW29, also conceded that the weather spiced things up.

"The N?rburgring weather made it all a bit different today," he added. "Everyone was running varying programmes, including me, just because we had to react to the weather forecast.

"We had an interesting day, going through a lot of data though. Everything was ok, but I'm a little bit upset because I lost half a second on my fastest lap due to a problem in the last corner. Anyway, all in all, I feel pretty comfortable on this track."
