Nico Rosberg is keeping his feet firmly on the ground despite claiming pole position for Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix.
The Mercedes driver achieved his second successive P1 starting position at the Barcelona circuit on Saturday after posting a 1:20.718.
That put the German 0.254s up on his team-mate Lewis Hamilton, handing Mercedes the 1-2 in qualifying.
However, whether they can repeat that in Sunday's race remains to be seen as last time out in Bahrain, Rosberg dropped from pole to ninth.
As such, Rosberg admits he's cautiously happy about his pole position.
"I think we have worked really well the whole weekend to optimise everything," he said.
"Of course after Bahrain we've been thinking about the race a lot so a bit surprised to be that quick today.
"It all went perfectly in qualifying and I had a really really good lap in the end so I'm really happy with that.
"It's a good motivation boost, especially for the team with the front row. It's fantastic.
"But of course I have to be a bit cautious because of what we saw in Bahrain.
"So for sure this is nice but to be enjoyed with caution."
The German, though, is hoping that Mercedes have at least taken steps towards avoiding a repeat of their Bahrain drop.
"For sure everyone has been working really really hard back in the factory to understand even better our problems.
"It's an ongoing process understanding how to get the most out these tyres.
"It's complex for us drivers and the engineers and we were just a bit behind on that in Bahrain. I'm sure we've caught up now.
"But then you come here and there are different issues again as here it's the graining of the tyre that's the main issue so again here we are trying to catch up and make the most of that situation.
"I'm sure we've improved things so I'm a little bit more confident for tomorrow but the race is going to be a whole different thing because with the tyres its a big challenge."
