Rosberg hopes for Nurburgring rain

By on Monday, July 18, 2011

Jul.18 (GMM) Nico Rosberg has admitted he is hoping for some of the Nurburgring's famous weather to strike this weekend.

"So far we do not have a really top car but the weather could be a chance for us to do a bit better," the Mercedes driver, during a visit to the DTM show event on Sunday at Munich's Olympic Stadium, is quoted by SID news agency.

The early weather reports are indeed calling for more rain in the Eifel mountains throughout this week and into the German grand prix weekend.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton on Friday recalled his first Nurburgring race in 2007, when a huge downpour struck a few laps in.

"The weather (at the circuit) can turn in a matter of moments -- you can have all the seasons in one afternoon," he said.
