I like racing at Monza: Nico Rosberg

Williams F1 driver Nico Rosberg is already looking forward to this weekend's Italian Grand Prix. Rosberg is a big fan of the Italian way of life and said he especially enjoys the incredible atmosphere at the Italian Grand Prix.

Speaking about the upcoming race at Monza he said: "I like racing at Monza. I have good memories there, especially from my GP2 race when I had a very good weekend, finishing in second twice and setting the fastest lap. The circuit itself is unique, has a great deal of history and it's fun to drive. The whole lap is a great experience because every corner is different and interesting in its own way. The second chicane is fun because you have to throw the car over the kerbs, hold onto as much speed as you can and brake as late as possible, unlike at the two Lesmos where you need to brake a bit earlier. The Ascari corner and the Parabolica are also interesting for the drivers. "The atmosphere at the Autodromo is brilliant thanks to the Tifosi. Italy has a lot of nice places to visit, it has fantastic food and I really like the Italian attitude to life, which is probably why most of my friends are Italian!"
