Rosberg hopes for better luck

Drivers' Championship leader Nico Rosberg hopes Lady Luck smiles on him at Monza this year after several disappointing results at the Italian track.

In eight previous races at Monza - for Williams and then Mercedes - Rosberg's best finish at the legendary circuit was the fifth place he achieved last year.

Rosberg held a similar record at Spa, but after controversially finishing in second place in Belgium last month - a result which saw him open up a 29-point lead over team-mate Lewis Hamilton - the German is hoping for a similar turnaround of fortunes this week.

"Monza is a circuit I really enjoy going to, [but] I've not had much luck at this race in the past," Rosberg told the official Mercedes website ahead of this week's race.

"2011, in particular, I didn't even make it past the first corner!

"But, this year, things are different. We have a great car and, with the Mercedes-Benz Hybrid Power Unit behind us, I feel confident we can get a really great result. It's still all to play for in the championship and, with the double points race in Abu Dhabi, anything can still happen.

"I'm focused on taking the maximum points possible in the remaining seven races and I know the team is too - starting with a top result this weekend."
