Nico Rosberg has said that the Chinese Grand Prix was all about damage limitation after a bad start and having to run the race without telemetry.
The German driver’s car lost all data communications to the team before the start, meaning that he could not set up the car correctly for the getaway off the line. He dropped to P7 and was hit by Valtteri Bottas, at which point he thought the race was over.
Ultimately, he produced a sensational drive to finish second behind teammate Lewis Hamilton.
In this video diary for Mercedes after the race, Nico talks about his Sunday in China.
