Rosberg praises Räikkönen's raise

Nico Rosberg will start from strong positions in Melbourne this week when the F1-serie starts.

– I have waited a long time for this. I had a perfect winter break, rested well and trained even better. Then it was the very successful test period with our new W03-car. We are ready for the first GP.

– The atmosphere in Melbourne is completely fantastic. It's a great place and the fans are fantastic. It's interesting to see where we are in qualification after all the hard work and speculations.

Rosberg also noted Kimi Räikkönen's strong comeback to F1 with pleasure.

– It's a totally brilliant thing for F1. Kimi is one of the best drivers from the 10 last years and certainly one of the best who have ever driven a F1-car. It's great to get him back to the races. It lifts up the sport's class, Rosberg smiled to Turun Sanomat.

Then what is best in the new Mercedes, which is expected to be one more possible winner based upon winter tests?

– That everything works like planned. The car is well built and it works on the track just as expected - unlike what happened during the last two years, Rosberg praises.
