The German drove in 2nd Training in third place and had only Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber to defer them.
Rosberg made no secret of its ambitions of the Silver Arrows in the fourth year after the F1 return as a factory team. "We want to be absolutely the best," he clarified. "We are not yet, but it goes in the right direction." With its W04 he had evidently great pleasure in Albert Park: "It was cool, it's fun to drive, the balance is good, even for attacking the car is very good..."

"The gearbox broke down," said Rosberg. "The operation was a mistake for us not a mechanical problem. Reliability true." The tendency of the team that started 2012 strong and then faded badly, be positive. Of the gearbox problem aside, Rosberg had to complain no other problems. "We are closer to the music," said Rosberg. "As far as it goes up, I do not know. We have a very good car, but it is important that we continue to push for the development."

The car seems great to drive. The onboards confirm it.
