Nico Rosberg admitted he did not have the best of starts to the qualifying hour at Interlagos before storming to his fifth consecutive pole position of the season on Saturday.

The Mercedes AMG PETRONAS dominated the final phase of qualifying to defeat team-mate Lewis Hamilton by 0.078s, and feels the race should be a good battle between them and the Scuderia Ferrari drivers on Sunday afternoon.

“I didn’t have a good start in to Qualifying,” revealed Rosberg. “Q1 and Q2 didn’t go to plan. But then I found a better rhythm in the final session, so I was happy to bring it all together in Q3.

“It feels great to be on pole again here. It’s the best possible position to start the race, I have the quickest car and on Friday we were able to practise a lot for the race, so I’m quite confident for tomorrow.  It will be a good battle with Lewis and also the Ferraris, so I can’t wait for that.”

Rosberg took some time to speak about the tragic happenings overnight in the French capital Paris.

“What happened yesterday in Paris makes everything else relative,” insisted Rosberg.  “What we do here is really not important compared to that and I’m thinking of them today.”
