Coming off of a controversial lock-up on the track during qualifying, that slowed down teammate Lewis Hamilton’s faster flying lap, Nico Rosberg won the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco today. Rosberg won on the same track that lead his father Keke Rosberg to victory, years earlier.
Thanks to the skillful driving of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, the Mercedes AMG team is 161 points ahead of their closest rival Red Bull. German driver Nico Rosberg has become a netter driver since Lewis Hamilton started sharing his data with him, something his former team-mate and 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher did not, do. They may be friendly competitors on the track but they are the epitome of a good team. Rosberg and Hamilton’s efforts to score points for the team have been very successful all season because points, translate into revenue.
A welcomed surprise was Marussia driver Jules Bianchi who got the first ever points for the team this season, placing them 9th in the Constructors. They gained entry into Formula One in 2009 and have been a hard working team struggling to gain Constructor points.
Stay tuned to Xiro Xone News Sports. Next race is Canada.
