BARCELONA, 9th May 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - He may have finished FP2 second fastest but Nico Rosberg said he didn’t feel comfortable in the car.

During FP1 Rosberg was only able to complete 9 laps when an ERS cooling issue forced him to set out of the rest of the session.

“It looks like we are very quick again, however personally I didn’t feel very comfortable in the car today, especially as I had limited running in P1.” Rosberg said.

“We have brought some new upgrade parts here to Barcelona this weekend and they are working quite well on the car.”

The German driver said there was still plenty of work to do and he would be working hard to find the right set-up.

“We still have a lot of work to do tonight and I will be working closely with my engineers to find my perfect set-up for the weekend.”

Teammate Hamilton, who topped the timesheets in FP1 and FP2, said he felt the car had made a step forward and they were aiming to qualify as high as possible.

“I can feel the positive step forward that we’ve made with the car” Hamilton said.

“we will do everything we can to qualify as high as possible tomorrow, but really it is all about the race and looking after those tyres is the most important thing”

Today Mercedes announced that their 2014 challenger would now be known as the F1 W05 Hybrid in honour of the hybrid technology in the car.
