Nico Rosberg has admitted he is cautious about the news that Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has fixed its track surface problems.

On F1's most recent visits to Canada, in 2007 and 2008, the asphalt broke up on the racing line in several sections.

The FIA announced on Wednesday that "the track has been resurfaced in the areas affected by degradation" in 2008.

"We must be cautious," the Mercedes driver said, "because there have been improvements every year, and every year was a disaster.

"But I'm still confident, as I have spoken with FIA officials.

"The FIA has said it has paid close attention, so it should be fine," German Rosberg said in fluent French at a pre-race event in downtown Montreal, according to La Presse newspaper.
