Rosberg concerned over Korea surface

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Nico Rosberg admits he is concerned that the late completion of the Korean International Circuit may cause problems with the track’s surface.

He said:

It will be an exciting challenge to race at the new Korean circuit. It looks great from the pictures that we have seen recently and I hope that the asphalt holds up as it has only been put down very recently.

It is always interesting to learn a new circuit and generally I get up to speed quickly so I’m looking forward to the weekend.

The race organisers finished laying the track last week.

For team mate Michael Schumacher it is one of several new circutis he has had to learn this year:

Finally this year we are going to a circuit which is not only new for me but for all of the drivers. Korea will be a very interesting country to see and even if the track has only just been finished in time, I am confident that everything will be fine.

I am very much in favour of new races and I think it is a benefit for all of us in the sport. It should not be too complicated to learn the layout and we are used to adapting quickly to new circumstances.

We had quite a good race in Japan last weekend and are hoping that we can move forward again and put on a good show at the first race in Korea.
