Williams still on the up NICO Rosberg’s second fourth place in two races has given the WilliamsF1 Team a boost in confidence for the second half of the 2009 season. Rosberg, who along with team-mate Kazuki Nakajima, qualified well within the top 10 at the Hungarian Grand Prix and was happy with his race result. “I am quite pleased with the outcome today as it was quite tricky, especially at the start against the KERS cars,” Rosberg said. “Initially I had no chance off the line, but the first corner was quite a big mess and I managed to profit from this and climb back to fifth place, which was important. “As the race settled down, I had to manage the tyres cautiously because of graining in both the first and second stint. Given all of these issues, we have to be very happy with fourth place and I am now up to fifth in the championship, although of course this was in part due to the fact that Felipe wasn’t able to start today. “Anyway, I am enjoying working with the team and everyone is pushing on really well, so we’ll continue to improve if we keep moving in this direction.” Williams F1 Technical Director Sam Michael insisted that the next step for the team was to reach the podium. “It was good to score some points from another fourth place for Nico, although our expectations are going up and we really want to get onto the podium. Both drivers had good starts and race pace was underlined by Nico’s third fastest lap, so everything is going in the right direction … we just need to start putting away some more points.”
