Cape Town - Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg is aiming to record a fourth-straight victory at the Monaco Grand Prix after ending his winning streak at the Spanish Grand Prix.

The German racer ended his remarkable seven-race winning streak in Barcelona after he crashed into team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the opening stages of Lap 1 on the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Rosberg, though, has claimed that he has moved on from that incident and explained that there is only one thing on his mind this weekend, especially on a track that he basically grew up on.

"I have memories from every corner going right back to my school days," the Championship leader told

"I always have great support there from my family, my friends and the fans, which gives you that extra boost through the weekend.

"It's been amazing to win there for the past three years but I know it will be tough to repeat that with Lewis, the Ferraris and the Red Bulls all so strong now."
