Nico Rosberg says tires will be the key to the Chinese GP, an event that has always put a big strain on the front left.
Rosberg starts from fourth, separated from teammate Lewis Hamilton by the two Red Bulls.
“It will be a tough race, because the left front tire is a big issue,” said Rosberg. “For sure there will be things happening, some people will struggle more than others. I had a good run on Friday, so I’m going into it confidently, knowing that I’ve this Red Bull package in the middle, which is not very helpful. But that’s the way it is, and with the top speed that I have I’m hoping that I manage to get by them somehow.
