What a perfect race by Nico Rosberg to claim the first win of his career from pole to finish.
Rosberg, the son of 1982 champion Keke, also scored the first win for Mercedes as an individual team since 1955. Mercedes left the sport in 1955 after the last race for them as a team ending in victory by Juan Manuel Fangio at the Italian Grand Prix. Mercedes brought the 2009 winning team Brawn GP in 2010 to set up an independent team, though they are engine partners to other teams. Team principal Ross Brawn was very happy with the result and this was evident when they were celebrating loudly on the radio.
