Nico Rosberg says he “doesn’t really want to speak about the world title yet” and is focused on winning races.
Rosberg, who’s has won two of the last three races, said: “It’s a really nice time in my career at the moment.”
“It’s new, I’ve never had a car as quick as it is now, going to every next race knowing that when I go out their in qualifying I can fight for a position somewhere right at the front and also in the race now the car is getting better and better so the chances are higher that even on Sunday I can keep my qualifying position. It’s a really nice feeling, very motivating.”
Mercedes have moved into second place in the championship. Asked if he believes they can now be considered title contenders Rosberg said: “No, it’s too early to say that.”
“We’re really focusing on getting our momentum and keeping it going as we have at the moment, just concentrating one race to the next, trying to get the most out of them, just as we have done now in the past couple of races which have gone fantastically for me, and then we see in a few races time.”
“Short-term I just want to annoy Sebastian [Vettel] and Red Bull a little bit, race by race, by being ahead of them,” he added.
“That’s the most important, to really be ahead of not only them but other teams and try and win more more races. That’s what I’m focused on at the moment and that’s what the whole team is focused on.”
