Nico Rosberg declared himself 'very happy' after getting Mercedes's testing programme back on track at Jerez on Thursday. the German completing a total of 148 laps. After two troublesome days at the Andalusian circuit, the outfit was able to cover 655 kilometres of trouble-free running; more than two and a half race distances.
"I'm very happy with today and I think it was probably a personal record for me to do almost 150 laps," said Rosberg. "I've never been so well prepared physically as I am this season; I feel on top form and it was no problem to complete the programme.
"To drive the distance from Silverstone to Spa in one day with no problems whatsoever is a fantastic achievement from the team. It really made up for the last two days and put a smile on everybody's face."
Rosberg said he felt comfortable in the car en route to the second fastest time on Thursday, but says the team still has 'plenty of work to do' before the opening race.
"In terms of driving the car, I have a good feeling, I can push it and feel comfortable - but obviously we still have plenty of work to do to continue improving," he concluded.
Lewis Hamilton will get back behind the wheel of the F1 W04 chassis tomorrow morning, with the Briton completing the fourth and final test day for Mercedes.
