Nico Rosberg wants to win in front of his home fans

Nico Rosberg celebrating his second place finish in Hungary

Nico Rosberg will be looking for a strong race in front of his home crowd, the German driver looks to repeat his dominate display in 2014.

The Mercedes driver was disappointed with Hungary but was pleased with the pace of the car and wants to translate that into more race victories.

“It was disappointing to lose the race at the first corner in Hungary. But I was really happy with my pace all weekend, so that gives me good confidence moving forwards. I’m happy to have the chance to get back in the car again so soon – and especially happy that it’s at my second home race”.

Rosberg has strong memories of driving around the Hockenheimring, in lower formula’s developing his craft as a racing. It is a special moment for a driver to win a Formula One race in front of their home fans. Nico Rosberg will look to take back the lead of Championship with a win in Germany.

“Driving in through the circuit gates brought back so many great memories – from my childhood days at the DTM with my Dad right through to winning the Grand Prix for myself in 2014. Hopefully I can repeat that this year for the fans and for everybody at Mercedes”.

A victory in Germany could spark a revival for Rosberg after losing the lead to the Championship in Hungary, but it would be a difficult task with Lewis Hamilton seemingly unstoppable at this point.
