Rosberg has a lucky charm
A strategic error on the other side of the garage gifted the Mercedes driver his third consecutive win in Monte Carlo, something only Alain Prost, Graham Hill and Ayrton Senna have done before.
To his credit though, Nico was quick to offer his sympathies to teammate Lewis Hamilton, admitting that the victory was “the luckiest” of his career.
An explanation for the good fortune might come in the form of his pregnant wife, who has seen her husband triumph on the two occasions she’s made it to a grand prix in person.
“This is a serious problem,” joked the German. “We need to do a bit of analysis on the capabilities of bringing out a baby in the paddock because she’s going to have to come to many more races. If it does happen during the race weekend then it could be an issue.”
