Nico Rosberg reveals his fondness for the Bahrain circuit ahead of this weekend's race.

Nico Rosberg has admitted that he is looking forward to carrying on his good form at the Bahrain Grand Prix this season.

The German, who picked up his maiden Formula 1 victory in China last week, claims that he is ready to return to one of his favoured circuits.

Rosberg said: "I have really good memories of the Bahrain circuit. I won the Formula 3 Macau-Bahrain Cup, GP2 Championship and finished seventh on my F1 debut with the fastest lap of the race.

"I like the track a lot. It's quite low downforce with lots of big stops and some faster corners too. The track layout definitely fits our car but it's really a big challenge for us to manage our tyre work well again and find the right set-up as the temperatures will be much higher than in China."

Rosberg is currently sixth in the drivers' championship.
