Rosberg Looks for Third Monaco Win in a Row

Looking like winner

The Mercedes driver tries to close the gap on his teammate Lewis Hamilton in his home race.
After some days of testing in Barcelona, the Formula One outfits arrived in Monte Carlo, to take part in arguably the most famous racing event in the world. This could be a crucial venue for the Mercedes drivers striving for the championship. Rosberg emerged as the winner last year, completing back-to-back victories in his home race in Monaco.

That marked the start of a four-month-long period, when the German was leading the championship. Rosberg might hope another success would trigger something similar this year, however it won’t be easy for him to take the lead from his teammate in the Principality again, as Hamilton enjoys a confident, 20-point lead.

Mercedes’s Nico Rosberg picked up his first victory of the year in Barcelona and now he prepares to win his third GP in a row in his home city. Keen followers of sports scores might remember that after the German driver came second in Monte Carlo in 2012, he won the event in 2013 and 2014, emerging as the Monaco specialist of the field.

With the German Grand Prix being cut from the calendar, this race will be Rosberg’s only true home GP this season, as he is a Monaco resident and was grown up in the Principality as well. After he edged closer to his teammate and biggest rival Lewis Hamilton with a win in Spain, he looks forward to continue closing the gap between them.

He said, “There’s still a long way to go this season so it’s all there to fight for, I’m just taking it race by race. Next we have Monaco – the most legendary, exciting and challenging event in the calendar. Throughout the whole weekend, the atmosphere is very, very special”.
Rosberg also emphasized the importance of the rare opportunity to stay in his place for the night before the race. “It’s a home race for me and it’s strange to just walk or take a scooter to the racetrack – but also very cool to sleep in your own bed each night“, he revealed.

Nico Rosberg was accused of drawing yellow flags deliberately after last year’s qualifying session in Monaco, however he was found innocent by the stewards. Nevertheless he clearly benefited from the appearance of the warning signals as his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, had no opportunity to take the pole position after the other Mercedes ran wide in turn 5.

After the controversial qualification, Rosberg went on to win the race and reclaimed the lead in the championship, but he virtually started a war within the team that lasted until the end of the year. This season is a different story however, with Lewis Hamilton leading the field confidently from the opening weekend of the season, but tensions are still there between the two.

Though they are in different shape psychologically compared to their respective states twelve months ago, a victory in Monaco would be crucial again. After winning here last year, Rosberg held the lead in the championship until the Singapore GP in September, and the 29-year-old German now obviously plans to launch a similar streak.
Meanwhile Hamilton would place another strike on Rosberg, if he managed to win his teammate’s favourite race – the German won multiple races in Monaco only. At the end of the day this should be another showdown between the two, and the best could be even happier than the luckiest Monte Carlo casino winners.
