Rosberg: Very obvious that we're moving forward
1 March 2012 – Nico Rosberg was upbeat following his penultimate day of 2012 pre-season testing in Barcelona on Thursday. After the session, the Mercedes driver expressed high praise for the Brackley team’s recent progress and is fully confident of a marked improvement on last year.
“The track is amazing for testing at the moment – probably too good because they are conditions you won’t find again at races,” Rosberg told GPUpdate.net and the gathered media. “But we still learned a lot again.
“There are no problems, so we have been able to get some real testing going and really concentrate on the performance of the car, whereas last year we were concentrating on reliability. So you can see that it’s very obvious that we are moving forward.”
Michael Schumacher will be in the car on Friday, with Rosberg’s final day of the 2012 winter period then coming as the weekend begins.
