Williams driver Nico Rosberg said that despite having a good weekend at Valencia he was left frustrated with his result.

Talking of the European GP Rosberg said “It was a good weekend for us. Again, the car performed really well which is good to see. It's been consistent on every single track so far so I'm pleased with the way the team is working. In relation to other teams, we've done well on the development front as well.”

Despite the positive development Rosberg was left a little frustrated with the pace of the Hamilton and Kovalinen, “McLaren have made an even bigger jump than us which is frustrating, but we are always there and a podium should come soon.”

Talking of development Rosberg defended his unlucky team-mate Kazuki Nakajima, “Hopefully Kazuki will have some more good fortune on his side for the rest of the season as he was very quick this weekend and he could have scored some points if it weren't for the puncture.”

When asked what he will be doing this week between Grand Prix he said that he'll be heading home to Monaco to relax with friends and “fit in some training”, this is a stark contrast to his team-mate who is keen to get the best from his performance so is heading back to Williams HQ to work on simulator training with his engineer.

Rosberg heads to Belgium looking forward to the race commenting that the track will suit the car and the strong aero package in the high speed corners.
