Rosberg: Nothing less than a win will do


A better start and finding some extra pace in qualifying are two of the areas that Nico Rosberg knows he has to improve on if he wants to be victorious at Monza this weekend.

The German finds himself 28 points behind his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the standings after the reigning World Champion won from pole position at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff has admitted that Hamilton gets "half the job done in qualifying on Saturday" with the Brit claiming 10 out of 11 pole positions so far this campaign.

Rosberg, who finished second at Spa last time out, admits that he should be doing better as he has the right machinery.

"The race in Spa was definitely disappointing. My start was not good so I need to work on that and also on finding those extra tenths in qualifying to get back on top there," he said.

"I know I have the car underneath me to get pole and the win every time with this incredible machine the team have built, so nothing less will do.

"Monza is next and I can't wait to try out this season's Silver Arrow there. I'm sure it will suit our car and it's a circuit I really enjoy, so all the ingredients are there for a strong weekend."
