Rosberg targets Abu Dhabi podium
31 October 2013 – Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg is targeting another podium finish in Abu Dhabi this coming weekend, fresh off the back of his success in India and his first top-three result since his British Grand Prix win in June.
Rosberg had had a series of relatively poor results up until last Sunday and he has no intention now of letting it slip, as Mercedes looks to extend its four-point lead over Ferrari in the Constructors’.
“The Abu Dhabi weekend is a real favourite of mine and it's a great event for the fans, our partners and the team,” said the German. “It's also very unique as a twilight race and working on a different timetable makes a nice change from the usual race weekend. On the track, we will be looking to continue the pace and performance of the car that we saw in India and hopefully the result.
“It was a really positive weekend for me and I'm pleased that the team now has renewed momentum in our fight for second place.”
