Nico Rosberg - (17th place): 7/10

A tough weekend for Rosberg and on the whole it was not any of his own doing. Close to Hamilton in FP2, Rosberg then was hit by a cooling system leak which contaminated his power unit on Saturday and saw him switch to an old spec Mercedes which had high mileage. After a poor start he recovered quite well, but in trying to put pressure on Vettel for second place Mercedes asked too much of the engine and a failure ended Rosberg’s race with just three laps to go. Costly, as Hamilton took maximum points.
