Nico Rosberg
Today was a great test day for sure. The track was a little bit quicker than over the race weekend and we did many laps, so I’m a bit tired! But it’s my only test during the season so it’s important. Today, we tested a lot of different things – some more generally for the rest of the season and some for the next race. Monaco has very unique setup characteristics so we evaluated a few of those. The last sector here has a lot of tight corners – so it’s like Monaco in a way, which is useful. The car felt very good there so I'm feeling optimistic and ready for the next race. It’s in my home town, it’s a legendary circuit and it should be a good weekend so I’m really looking forward to it.
