Rosberg takes pole position for Brazilian GP
Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg grabbed the pole position for Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix by outpacing teammate Lewis Hamilton.
“I am pleased,” Rosberg said after securing his sixth pole position this year, Xinhua reported. The German clocked a fastest lap time of one minute 11.282 seconds at Interlagos, the fifth time in a row that he has topped qualifying. Hamilton, who has already been crowned this year’s world champion, posted 1:11.360, while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was third in 1:11.804. “It’s the best place to be. It worked well. I was playing catch up a little bit, but then in the final session I really got going and got some good laps in. It is always nice to end on a high rather than on a low,” Rosberg said. Hamilton was upbeat about his chances in Sunday’s penultimate race of the season and denied he was lacking motivation.
