Rosberg: Red Bull will be closer in Monaco
14 May 2014 – Nico Rosberg reckons the opposition and particularly Red Bull will be a lot closer to Mercedes in the Monaco Grand Prix next week.
Mercedes dominated the Spanish Grand Prix last weekend, taking yet another one-two and while Rosberg was again runner-up to team-mate Lewis Hamilton - and now slips to second in the Drivers' Championship, he is bullish about his prospects heading to the Principality.
"It's my favourite race of the year," said the German. "I have great memories there from last year. I'm looking forward to it, with the car that we have also this year, it's going to be great.
"For sure the opposition is going to be closer. Especially I expect Red Bull to be a lot closer, so it's going to be tougher for us but still, we have a strong package, engine and car. So, [we] should go fine around Monaco.
"I'm going to try and make the most of it, repeat the win from last year. That's the aim and we'll see if it works out."
