Rosberg relishing great fan atmosphere in Austin (VIDEO)


Nico Rosberg is looking forward to returning to Austin, Texas for the United States Grand Prix, saying that the atmosphere created that the Circuit of The Americas by the fans is among the best in the world.

The German driver is currently embroiled in a bitter fight for the Formula 1 drivers’ championship with Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton, and has dropped some 17 points behind after failing to win any of the past six races.

In Austin, Rosberg could cut the gap back to 10 points with victory, but the momentum is firmly with Hamilton after four consecutive wins.

Nevertheless, Rosberg is relishing the race at COTA, and speaks about his enjoyment in Austin in this video produced by Mercedes.

In four previous US GP appearances, Nico has recorded a best finish of ninth place on two occasions (2006 and 2013).
