Nico Rosberg is very good at driving...
Especially in Austria, it seems. The German made a flying start off the line to take the lead from teammate Lewis Hamilton, and had the pace to stay in control of the race from thereon in.
The victory was Nico’s third in four races, with the gap at the top of the drivers’ standings now down to just ten points. Lewis looked capable of running away with the championship after Bahrain, but a mixture of hard graft and good fortune has reignited the title fight.
“It was one of the easier wins, which was good for once. No pressure from behind,” said Rosberg, who now has 11 GP victories to his name.
“Race craft was a thing that I needed to improve on from last year and it is going in the right direction, so I am pleased with that.”
