The Brazilian Grand Prix was another Mercedes victory for Nico Rosberg, guaranteeing the German second place in the World Championship. There was an element of predictability about the event, and while Lewis Hamilton was never very far behind his team-mate there was never an opportunity to overtake. After the race, Lewis made the point that this is one of the great race tracks on the calendar and yet there was nothing he could do against a car with similar performance. Sebastian Vettel did all he could with the lead Ferrari and was happy with third, while his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was fourth, more than half a minute behind. Further back there was a little more action with Max Verstappen once again showing himself to a magician when it comes to passing his rivals. The weekend was however rather downbeat, despite the usual Brazilian enthusiasm, because many people were appalled by the sport’s reaction to the terrorist attacks in Paris.
