Rosberg: I hope to have more luck in India
20 October 2012 – Nico Rosberg is hoping to enjoy a more successful weekend in India, with the Mercedes driver aiming to bounceback from two retirements. Having achieved a sixth place finish at the venue last year, he is confident over his chances in 2012.
"The Buddh International Circuit is very challenging with an interesting combination of slow speed corners and long fast straights," said Rosberg. "The track also has one of the highest average speeds in Formula One and is good for overtaking.
"Last year I was really impressed by the passion and friendliness of the Indian people so I'm looking forward to visiting again. I hope that I will have a bit more luck than recently next weekend, and I will have the chance to achieve a good result."
Rosberg, who will be joined by departing McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton next year, has scored points in ten of the 16 races so far this season, including a win in China.
