Rosberg suffered from Intermediate tyre

Aug.01 – Mercedes GP’s Nico Rosberg was struggled for switch to Intermediate tyres as rain fell in the middle of the Hungarian GP, although the sole-finishing Mercedes driver dropped back to ninth place as the strategy unsuccessful.

“I had a decent start today and gained three positions, which was encouraging,” he explained. “In the middle of the race the Prime (harder compound) tyres no longer had any grip in the increasingly damp conditions, so we took the decision to put on Intermediates. Unfortunately the rain shower proved not to be very strong and we had to switch to Slicks, which cost me a few positions. I pushed very hard to catch Buemi and di Resta and managed to close the gap, but it was impossible to overtake them in the last corners.

“So I collected just two points, but still more than last year. Now I’m looking forward to the next two races after the break. Spa and Monza are high-speed tracks where the Mercedes-Benz engine power in our car should be a benefit.”
