  • Lewis took his 45th career victory today – his fifth at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve and second of the 2016 season so far.
  • Nico recovered to P5 after an eventful race which saw him take to the grass at the first corner and pick up a puncture in the closing stages.
  • Nico (116) leads the Drivers’ Championship by nine points from Lewis (107) in P2.
  • MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS (223) lead Ferrari (147) by 76 points in the Constructors’ Championship.

Nico Rosberg: Today’s race was really tough. Starting at the beginning, Lewis had a bad start, mine was decent and Sebastian got a super start. So, I was alongside Lewis and tried around the outside. I had to try the move or accept I’d be behind him. In Barcelona it worked butthis time it didn’t. It was a hard maneuver from him but that’s racing and I need to do a better job next time. I lost a lot of places going down the escape road and that cost me a shot at the race. From there I did my best to fight back and I there was a chance of a podium – but then I got the puncture and had to pit again – dammit! I was pushing hard after that to regain the positions but it was a massive mission managing the car with brake warnings coming on and running low on fuel. It was a good battle with Max – again, on the limit but good racing. I tried everything to get past him and had a massive spin at the end. On that final lap I just about managed to drag it round for P5 ahead of Kimi, so a disappointing result as our car was awesome today but that’s how it goes sometimes. I’ve got two days at home now to get ready and go for it again in Baku.
