  • Nico today took his 22nd career victory – his first at the Marina Bay Street Circuit and eighth of the 2016 season so far on his 200th Grand Prix start.
  • The team extends its congratulations also to Mercedes-Benz stalwart Bernd Mayländer, who today marked his 300th race as official Formula One Safety Car driver.
  • Nico (273) leads the Drivers’ Championship by eight points from Lewis (265) in P2 MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS (538) lead Red Bull (316) by 222 points in the Constructors’ Championship.

Nico Rosberg: “That was a fantastic weekend! In the past the Singapore track has not treated me so well, so this win is a very special one and an even more emotional one for me. The weekend started perfectly with a good qualifying session. Then, I had a good start and was able to keep the Red Bulls and the Ferraris behind me – both of which had beaten us comfortably last year. It was a bit tight at the end after Daniel (Ricciardo) did a clever pit stop timing wise. If I would have also pitted I would have come out behind him because I was stuck in traffic on my in-lap, so we chose the best strategy to stay out and a big thanks to the team for that. It’s great that we learned from our mistakes last year and won at what is clearly a Red Bull track. This shows the competence and strength of our engineering group. I look forward to Malaysia now – but first I will definitely celebrate this win tonight!”
