Rosberg Hits Back – Brazilian Grand Prix

Nico Rosberg put an end to Mercedes’ team-mate Lewis Hamilton’s winning streak in the Brazilian grand prix on Sunday, beating the Englishman to the line by just 1.4 seconds to ensure the title fight remains very much alive at the final round in Abu Dhabi.

The German led from the start and despite concerns over severe tyre degradation didn’t allow Hamilton to get close enough to mount an overtake. For his part the British driver lost around 7 seconds when he span shortly after his second pitstop.

3rd place fell to hometown hero Felipe Massa in his Williams, while 4th place for Jenson Button again put pressure on McLaren who look set to retain Kevin Magnussen alongside imminent signing Fernando Alonso despite the 2009 champion’s clear advantage over the Dane. Sebastian Vettel was 5th ahead of Alonso who just bested Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, Nico Hulkenberg, Magnussen and Valterri Bottas who had a difficult day in an obviously ailing Williams not helped by 2 very shoddy pitstops.

Daniel Ricciardo was the most high-profile retirement when his left-front suspension collapsed at speed on the run down to turn one, but the Aussie luckily kept control and brought his Red Bull back to the pits to park.
