KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 (Bernama) -- Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team driver, Nico Rosberg is optimistic that Petronas as the technical partner and fuel formula producer for the team will remain victorious in the FIA Formula 1 World Constructors category this season.

Apart from Team Mercedes AMG Petronas winning the constructors' category last year, Lewis Hamilton of Britain also clinched the overall champion driver's title while Rosberg was second.

Rosberg said working with Petronas was absolutely amazing and Petronas Syntium had proved to be a winning formula for his team last year.

"Equipped with a unique formulation, it protects our engines against extreme temperatures and maintains optimum engine performance.

"Given Petronas's expertise, I am excited about the prospect of another outstanding performance this year," he told a press conference after the launching of the new Petronas Syntium with 'Cooltech'fuel at Suria KLCC concourse here Saturday.

Rosberg was also confident that he and Hamilton would once again lead the race at the Sepang Circuit next weekend.

Hamilton won the 2015 Petronas Australian F1 Grand Prix with Rosberg coming in second place while Scuderia Ferrari team's Sebastian Vettel was third.

"Last weekend obviously we had a great race... We're always pushing each other to be at a higher level. We want to give an amazing battle. By representing Petronas, we're very sure to win at the Sepang Circuit," he said.

The Malaysian leg of the F1 will be held at the Sepang Circuit near here from March 27-29.
