Nico Rosberg hailed his Mercedes team as he notched up his fourth successive pole position in 2014 during qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix at a wet Spa Francorchamps.

Rosberg eclipsed Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton, who he leads in the title race by 11 points, by 0.228s to claim his seventh pole of the campaign.

"It’s awesome at this track, [it's] one of the most special ones of the year.

"[It was] not as difficult out there as some conditions as it was nearly always Intermediates, only varying slightly. That said it’s always difficult, [the] car was handling well, we really fine-tuned it perfectly and got it in the end. I felt comfortable and was able to push. It’s a long race tomorrow but I’m very happy.

"I was feeling good through Eau Rouuge, really going for it, maybe that’s where the time was won."

"We have a great car here, leading the way, [the] team [is] doing a great job, keeping it going all the time and keeping that up.

"Really good chances for tomorrow, good start and go from there."
