Rosberg: Winning is fun

Rosberg: Winning is fun

Nico Rosberg reckons Mercedes are hearing him loud and clear as Michael Schumacher's exit has given him a "stronger voice" within the team.

Teaming up with Schumacher in 2010, Rosberg was the one scoring most of the points, however, it was the elder statesman who had the bigger say in proceedings.

Asked by Krone newspaper about his role at Merc in the wake of Schumacher's departure, he revealed he now has a "stronger voice".

"And to me that is a beautiful process in which I can help Mercedes become the best team."

He added: "We want to improve in the direction of race wins."

However, the ultimate goal is the World title.

"That is the big goal but for now I want to win races because success is the most fun."

Pressed as to whether Pirelli's decision to alter their hard compound from the Spanish GP onwards would help Mercedes, the German said: "I don't think it will make a big difference.

"But," he added, "if you are fast in Barcelona that is the benchmark for the rest of the summer."
