As the qualifying rounds of the Australian Grand Prix came to a conclusion, Nico Rosberg has expressed his delight that Mercedes were able to produce another world-beater of a car for a third year in a row.

Rosberg, who finished in P2 behind his teammate and rival Lewis Hamilton, has said that although he is not happy with his starting position tomorrow, there is still ample chance to get the first win of 2016.

The German also added that Mercedes cannot become complacent as teams will be looking at every opportunity to pounce on their mistakes.

"The last lap was good in Q3, just Lewis did a better job," the 30-year-old admitted.

"It is impressive to see how the team, in the third year running now, appears to be the quickest out there by a good margin.

"It is amazing to see that. The risk is when you are dominating you start to become complacent but we were able to push through.

"Of course, not happy with second but lots of opportunities from that position tomorrow."
