Nico Rosberg is having a good week and is hoping that it will get even better with victory on home soil at this weekend’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

Already leading the world championship, the German got married to his long time sweet -heart, his beloved national team won the world cup, and he signed a new Mercedes deal worth a reported €55 million.

“Just need to win my home grand prix now!” he exclaimed.

It is less smooth sailing in reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel’s world. Rosberg has sympathy.

“It’s definitely difficult if you’re so used to success and then suddenly the car is no longer the best,” Rosberg told APA news agency. “Especially as he is such a competitive guy.” (GMM)
