Nico Rosberg targets win in Germany

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg hopes to round off a fantastic week with victory at the German Grand Prix.

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg has targeted victory in his home country Germany to open up his lead over teammate Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' standings.

Rosberg, who signed a new contract with the team and got married in recent days, hopes to cap off the week with a strong performance in front of his home crowd at Hockenheim.

"It's a great battle between [me and Lewis]," Rosberg told reporters. "Every race it's been us two fighting it out for the win and it's fantastic. A tough battle also but good. I'm sure it's going to continue for a long time and it will be very close.

"I look forward to the race here now. It's my second home race - I have Monaco and here - and so I'm very fortunate in that sense.

"So I look forward to the support and really hope to do a fantastic job and it would an amazing end to the already great times I've been having recently if I could win here at the German Grand Prix."

Rosberg is just four points ahead of Hamilton.
