Rosberg looking forward to Silverstone

Sunday 22-June-2014 15:54

After winning his third race of the season in Austria on Sunday, Nico Rosberg heads to next month's British Grand Prix on a high.

Starting from third place on the grid, Rosberg gained the lead of the race after the first round of pit stops and despite the best efforts of his team-mate Lewis Hamilton during the final stint, the German reached the chequered flag without incident.

"It wasn't the easiest of races, trying to manage certain things happening, but I had a very very fast car again but it is great to win again. It was also great to get another one-two," Rosberg said on the podium after his victory.

"It's great to be back in Austria, it's great to have a race here again and the fans have been fantastic.

"I am looking forward to the next one [at Silverstone], it is the home race so another one-two would be great to give the guys in the garage something to cheer about."

Sunday's victory saw Rosberg's advantage over Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship standings swell to 29 points, but he acknowledged that it isn't as significant an advantage as it might seem.

"Twenty nine points is for sure a nice gap, but it is still so early in the season," he said.

"I just like to concentrate on each weekend and try to make the most of them and enjoy the moment.

"It is nice to come to the next race with the best car knowing if I do a good job I can get pole and win the race."
