Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, Circuit de Catalunya, 2014Nico Rosberg says he’s close to gaining the upper hand on team mate Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton has won the last four races in a row but Rosberg finished two of the last three hot on the tail of the other Mercedes.

“In general it’s been a tough battle up to now and I expect it to continue like that,” he said in the press conference ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.

“Of course now he’s had the result rhythm, you know, in a couple of races. But it’s been very close and I just need a little bit, just need a tiny bit to turn it around and I’ll start trying to do that here in Monaco.”

Rosberg also said he is not concerned that Hamilton has out-qualified him in four of the five races so far. “Of course three of those qualifying [sessions] were in the wet, so in the dry it’s one-one.”

“And it’s supposed to be dry on Saturday so I’m confident I can make it happen so I’m not changing my approach or anything.”
