Nico Rosberg on Pole

Nico Rosberg gave the Mercedes car their first pole position in a fully Mercedes branded car since 1955.  Then it was Fangio - now Rosberg who beat  his team mate Michael Schumacher into third and beat second place Lewis Hamilton by 0.57 secs.

Hamilton has to take a five place grid penalty for fitting a new gearbox which puts Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi into third.  His time was less than 1/10 behind Schumacher.

The result of this gives an all Mercedes front row.  How pleased they must be that their modified, front and rear wing actuating version of DRS has been deemed legal.
