Nico Rosberg said he was not happy with his performance in qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix despite finishing ahead of teammate Michael Schumacher.
"Not really, unfortunately, no," Rosberg told the BBC when asked if he was happy to be starting from sixth position. "I'm pleased because we made a lot of progress from this morning – I've been struggling all weekend – and progressed a lot. But then, however, didn't get the best out of it in qualifying.
"I could have done a lot better than that: I think three or four tenths at least because I was off the road on my fastest lap, but that's the way it is and still sixth place is a good place to start," he added.
Rosberg admitted however that he was pleased to have turned things around in qualifying after Schumacher had been quicker than him in practice.
"A little bit, of course, yes, because he's been quicker up until qualifying all weekend and then I really turned around after qualifying but I didn't get the best out of it and that's much more important, so I need to concentrate more in future," he added. "It's not typical for me to make such mistakes in qualifying normally."
