We’re Still Trying To Beat Red Bull, Says Rosberg

Nico Rosberg says he expects to be challenging for victory in India, despite Sebastian Vettel’s recent dominance.

“Well, I’m here to do that; that’s for sure,” said the Mercedes driver. “And the last couple of races have not really gone to plan, a lot of bad luck, also. But, I have a very good car at the moment. I think the Red Bull is a bit quicker than us, but you never know. If we really get everything right on a weekend like here in India, then it’s possible to beat Mark (Webber) and Sebastian (Vettel) in that car. That’s what I’m here to do, so I’ll give it everything and we’ll see.”
