May 9 (GMM) Nico Rosberg thinks Mercedes has made a backwards step with its updated car.
Although his teammate Michael Schumacher was faster than Rosberg all weekend in Spain, the seven time world champion was still a minute behind the winner at the chequered flag -- as he had been in China three weeks ago.Rosberg, meanwhile, was a lap down, despite finishing twice on the podium in the first four races of 2010."Something is not quite right on the car," German reports quote the 24-year-old as saying after the Barcelona race."In the last race I was able to fight with Red Bull, now we're nowhere," lamented Rosberg. "We were very slow this weekend, especially me."Meanwhile, although Lewis Hamilton ended his race in the barriers with a burst tyre, the McLaren driver was happy to have been outpaced on Sunday only by winner Mark Webber."It was nice to take a step forward and split the Red Bulls," said the 2008 world champion.
