Reflections on the European Grand Prix
Nico Rosberg: "It was a good weekend for us. Again, the car performed really well which is good to see. It's been consistent on every single track so far so I'm pleased with the way the team is working. In relation to other teams, we've done well on the development front as well. We should have been on the podium this race, but McLaren have made an even bigger jump than us which is frustrating, but we are always there and a podium should come soon. Hopefully Kazuki Nakajima: will have some more good fortune on his side for the rest of the season as he was very quick this weekend and he could have scored some points if it weren't for the puncture."
Kazuki Nakajima: "From Saturday on, it was a bad weekend for me. We had a problem with the car in qualifying which ruled me out of Q2 and put me right down the grid in P17. From there, it was hard work to make any headway even though I made up three places in the opening lap. I was running in 13th and racing for 11th when I then had a puncture which was really frustrating. Up until then, it was going quite well considering so the end result was a shame."
What we did after Valencia
Kazuki Nakajima: "We only have a couple of days before heading over to Belgium, so I'll be going to the factory to do some simulator work with my engineers."
Nico Rosberg: "I don't have any plans really. I'm going home to Monaco and will just be relaxing with friends and fitting in some training."
Spa - from a technical perspective
Nico Rosberg: "Spa should be good for the team. It's a very high speed track, very different to Valencia, but our car goes really well everywhere. This track, in particular, will suit our car because we have a strong aero package for the quick corners so I'm looking forward to it."
Kazuki Nakajima: "It's very different to Valencia with its medium and high speed corners. We struggled a bit there in 2008 but this year's car is competitive everywhere so it should be fine. The weather made it a difficult race last year so hopefully it will be more stable this year."
Belgium: love it or hate it?
Nico Rosberg: "Belgium's in the middle of nowhere really so it will make a change to the places where we've visited recently. Going to different places is what Formula One's about though so it will be nice."
Kazuki Nakajima: "I don't have much experience of the country as a whole, but Spa and the surrounding countryside is really beautiful. It's quiet, but the people are really passionate about Formula One so always really nice to go there."
