Nico Rosberg admits that he was disappointed to lose pole to teammate Lewis Hamilton in Spain after beating him in both Q1 and Q2.

“I’m definitely very disappointed,” said Rosberg. “I don’t particularly enjoy coming second to Lewis. I am of course disappointed but in the end it was a good lap from me, so Lewis just did a better job and that’s just the way it is.
