Rosberg: Just need tiny bit to turn it around
21 May 2014 – Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg reckons he just needs a 'tiny bit' to turn it around and get the better of team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
Rosberg won the season opening Australian Grand Prix, but since then has had to play second fiddle to Hamilton, finishing runner-up to the Briton in all four subseqent races. Despite that though, the German remains confident he can fight back.
"It has been a tough battle up until now and I expect it to continue like that this weekend," Rosberg said. "Of course he's had the result rhythm in the last couple of races but it has been very close. I just need a tiny bit to turn it around and I will start trying to do that in Monaco."
Rosberg also insisted he is not too concerned at having lost the lead in the Drivers' Championship following the result in Spain earlier this month.
"I am not too focused on that," he confirmed. "I would rather be ahead that behind, but it's very, very close and there is still a long way to go. I am just focused on this weekend and I am looking forward to it.
"I know I have a fantastic car at the moment and I expect the car to be very quick here. We need to wait and see if we are the fastest, but I think we will be.
"I hope to have a fantastic weekend. I am confident I can make it happen so I am not changing my approach," he concluded.
