Nico Rosberg is looking to continue the run of form that has seen him score in the last two races as the Formula 1 World Championship heads to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix.

Leaping to tenth in the standings courtesy of the two points he gained with seventh in the Turkish Grand Prix, Rosberg is a driver on form and with Monza featuring on his list of favourite circuit's, the German is well placed to add to his tally.

Indeed, Monza brings back good memories for Rosberg having performed well there in 2005 whilst racing in GP2, a round that set him well onto the well for the title.

"I like racing at Monza," he said. "I have good memories there, especially from my GP2 race when I had a very good weekend, finishing in second twice and setting the fastest lap. The circuit itself is unique, has a great deal of history and it's fun to drive. The whole lap is a great experience because every corner is different and interesting in its own way.

"The second chicane is fun because you have to throw the car over the kerbs, hold onto as much speed as you can and brake as late as possible, unlike at the two Lesmos where you need to brake a bit earlier. The Ascari corner and the Parabolica are also interesting for the drivers.

"The atmosphere at the Autodromo is brilliant thanks to the Tifosi. Italy has a lot of nice places to visit, it has fantastic food and I really like the Italian attitude to life, which is probably why most of my friends are Italian!"
