24th June 2010 02:54 - Nico's birthday messages
f1 - nico - geometric
It's Nico's birthday on sunday and his webteam are organising a surprise birthday card for him. They're asking fans to send in images containing their birthday wishes for Nico and they plan to compile them all into an enormous card and hand it to him on sunday - seems like quite a fun idea, I think! If you want to send your message then check out the website before sunday!

SPOILERSCollapse )

It's clear he's really enjoying the season and loving his car right now. He was interviewed on the BBC post-race show and he was asked which of the upcoming tracks he thought would suit the car best, and he said all of them. He said that whenever he comes to a new track, whatever it is, the car feels great now, which hasn't happened for the past couple of years. And I imagine that if he has that confidence in the car, then he's able to push that little bit more and it's really paying off for him!

let's talk about points - cut for potential spoilers, if you do some mathsCollapse )

9th May 2009 00:52 - Spain: Friday practice
f1 - nico - first podium
Nico topped the timesheets in the second Friday practice! Kazuki came in second, and both drivers did well in the first practice as well, so it looks like the Williams cars are looking strong here. Here's hoping that their performance stays this strong throughout the weekend; the practice sessions promise so much and never deliver come race day.

From Friday practice - selected team and driver quotes:
Nico Rosberg, P1 - 1:22.667, 6th; P2 - 1:21.588, 1st
"Today was our first run with the new aero components on the car and they all seemed to work well. They're giving us a few tenths extra per lap so we've made definite progress. Everyone has brought new developments here though so we will see how things look in qualifying. We also ran some tyre compares today. It's not obvious which direction will be the right one, so strategy is going to be very important and will have a major impact on the race."

f1 - nico - earth tones
Good news from today's practice sessions. Nico came 4th in the first practice and 1st in the second. I hope this translates to a strong race pace too. He's done incredibly well in the practice sessions so far this season, and reasonably well in qualifying, but the races have been disappointing after his times earlier in the weekend. Here's hoping that this weekend goes better!

From Friday practice - selected team and driver quotes:
Nico Rosberg, P1 - 1:34.227, 4th; P2 - 1:33.339, 1st
"You can only ever compare your performance to other race weekends so, relatively, I think we are looking ok. We've done a lot of set-up work today and I am quite happy with everything so we've made good progress. The team brought some new parts to Bahrain and they seem to be working well so thanks to our aero guys for their continuing hard work in developing the car. I am really convinced that we will be able to do something positive at this race and to get the points that the car is worth."

Nico has topped the timesheets in both of the friday practice sessions! What a great to start to the season!

From Friday practice - selected team and driver quotes:
Nico Rosberg, P1 - 1:26.687, 1st; P2 - 1:26.053, 1st
In both sessions sector two was working particularly well. There are only two 'real' corners in the sector, but it's really interesting and it feels good in the car. The FW31 is well balanced all round the track, but seems even more so there than in any other places. After a winter of testing, it's good to get out on a new, fresh track and we seem to be in a better position than we thought.

There's also the following news pages, if anyone's interested:
Practice One - Rosberg heads a Williams one-two
Practice Two - Williams lead Brawn and Toyota, as big guns struggle
11th March 2009 12:56 - Interview with Nico and Kazuki
f1 - nico - green
There's an interesting interview up at the Williams F1 website with Nico and Kazuki. They talk about the changes to the cars and hopes and expectations for this season. It also seems that a lot of drivers are trying to lose weight because of the heavy KERS system that's being introduced this year. Nico's looking pretty slim as it is, surely he can't afford to lose much more!

Anyway, I've copied the article in full behind the cut.

From the Williams AT&T website:

25th April 2008 10:46 - Nico interview
f1 - nico - first podium
There's a short interview at Formula1.com: Exclusive interview - Williams’ Nico Rosberg.

He talks about podiums, Barcelona, his hopes for the season and a little bit about his father.

I think this was my favourite part:
I have to say it was amazing to stand on the podium for the first time in F1. Last time I was up there was almost three years ago in GP2, but I still wasn't expecting a podium at all in the first race, as I thought we would end up in seventh or eighth position and get a couple of points. It was a big step up for me personally.

Oh yeah! I'm still not tired of looking at those podium pics!

You can find a video and hi-res pics of those two in my journal. They paired in Bahrain to talk for RTL about their childhood. h e r e

Nico's official website is finally up and running!


For the past two years, the website has simply been a placeholder image with a small bit of text promising that a website will be forthcoming, but it never appeared.... until now.

It's a beautiful site, very nicely put together; although it's a little sparse on information! There's some very pretty pictures though - check out the downloads section, there's some really gorgeous desktops to download.

Enjoy :)

6th April 2008 12:24 - [qualif.]
Nico is 8th and standing on the 4th line in the grid. Well, I'm still kinda stupid with how the qualif. system goes, but anyway... 8th place means the clean side of the road so I really hope the start will be good for him. Good luck!)
5th April 2008 00:38 - Bahrain Friday Practice
f1 - nico - first podium
Nico did really well today. He was third in morning practice, beaten only by the Ferraris who are looking pretty strong this weekend, and he was sixth in the afternoon practice.

Judging by the selected driver quotes, he's feeling good about the car too: I am happier with the car here compared to the last race in Malaysia and I think we are back to normal now, which is encouraging. The circuit surface suits our car better, which in turn made it much more enjoyable to drive. Over the two sessions we made some very big set-up changes and I think we’ve gone into the right direction. It’s getting very close with a lot of people in the midfield, but I think we have a good chance to do well this weekend. It was also productive to be reliable today which meant plenty of track time.

Let's hope he has a good qualifying tomorrow!
3rd April 2008 01:58 - [nice job kid!]
Hey guys!

Didn't find the WilliamsF1 community & guess it doesn't even exist so I joined this gang. Not sure if I am a fan of Nico, but I am really a fan of Williams Team (always have, always will lol, no matter how much they suck) and erm... comparing with the second driver of ours (what is his surname? dunno how to spell it. It's long and complicated lol), Nico is MY MAN))))

I have a T-shirt with Williams Logos and sponsors and Nico's name sumwhere on the shoulder. As long as they didn't have simple Williams T-Shirts in the shop, I guess, I joined the list of Nico's fans))) He's doing great. His 3rd place in Australia was pretty amazing. Good job, kid!))

Nico sounds very upbeat and very positive with the way the season is going, especially the latter half. As well he should! Williams have really improved this season and Nico's been really strong.
