Rosberg: Important to maintain consistency
10 June 2012 – Having been the driver to score most points between Bahrain and Monaco, Nico Rosberg finished sixth to rack up eight more crucial points in Canada today. Post-race, the German stresses that consistency is crucial in this season of general fluctuations.
“Sixth place is a decent result today and it's important for both me and the team to keep scoring points for the championship and maintain our consistency,” says the Chinese Grand Prix winner. “It was a mixed-up race and it was difficult to find a rhythm, particularly at the start, but by the end, the gap to the leading cars was not that big.
“It could have gone better this weekend and we just need a little bit more performance to be competing at the front. However, we are making good progress and increasing our understanding of the tyres all the time.”
With Mercedes team-mate Michael Schumacher having retired with a stuck DRS flap, the seven-time World Champion is now looking to Rosberg for title glory in 2012.
