Ros­berg joins elite with a fourth win

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Nico Ros­berg in­sists he is not yet think­ing about the world cham­pi­onship, de­spite be­com­ing only the fourth man to ever win the open­ing four races of the sea­son.

No driver has ever gone on to lose the cham­pi­onship hav­ing tri­umphed in the open­ing quar­tet of races. Ros­berg joins Ayr­ton Senna (1991), Nigel Mansell (1992) and Michael Schu­macher (1994, 2004) as the only driv­ers to ever have a per­fect score at this stage of the cam­paign.

Ros­berg said: “Of course it sounds cool [win­ning the ti­tle], but you know it’s not my fo­cus. I’m just en­joy­ing win­ning at the mo­ment. Yes I have a good points lead but there’s still 425 points up for grabs . Lewis will use this and come back fight­ing. He will be mo­ti­vated and will come back stronger.”
