Nico Rosberg says it took him just a few days to get over the disappointment of missing out on the 2014 title as he looks to go one better this season.
Rosberg battled with Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton throughout 2014 season, but ultimately lost the title to the Englishman at the final round in Abu Dhabi.
“Thankfully it goes pretty quickly, when there is success or not success, it takes a few days and I get over it,” Rosberg told Sky Sports.
“In this case that was great, when it is successful it is not so great as you want to enjoy the moment longer, but it is quite short lived always.
“I am ready to go again definitely, it’s been a long break.”
Rosberg says his focus is on overhauling Hamilton in 2015, but while Mercedes go into the new season as favourites, he is still waiting to see how the team’s rivals compare.
“The biggest challenge first of all is to be my best – that is the first and most important challenge for me – and to be better than ever,” he added.
“Then the second challenge is going to be first of all trying to beat Lewis and then further more trying to beat all the other teams – we have no idea where we stand so we need to wait and see where we are.
“Of course we had very strong base last year so the chances are good, but we don’t know.”
