Rosberg out to carry the momentum in Bahrain
3 April 2014 – Mercedes ace Nico Rosberg wants to try and maintain the momentum when he goes to Bahrain this week.
Rosberg leads the 2014 Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship by 18 points following the opening two races. However after having to play second fiddle to team-mate, Lewis Hamilton in the Malaysian Grand Prix last Sunday - finishing more than 15 seconds adrift - he will be out to bounce back and replicate his Melbourne win.
“The first two races have been a great start to my season and I'm already looking forward to being back in the car and carrying on that momentum in Bahrain,” Rosberg stated.
“It's a great track and I really enjoy driving it. I've never had much luck on race weekends here, but it's definitely the one I'm best prepared for this year. I came to Bahrain for the Pirelli tyre test back in December and during winter testing a few weeks ago.”
Despite that though, he knows he has to keep on it: “We may be leading both Championships at the moment but our rivals are breathing down our necks, so we need to stay focused and keep doing our job calmly and professionally,” he added.
