Rosberg fastest in Mexico qualifying
For the fourth time in a row Nico Rosberg had the measure of Lewis Hamilton in qualifying, besting the champion by about 2/10th. On the second row will be Sebastian Vettel and Danil Kwyat.
Hamilton said afterwards he was using a better race setup. The forecast for tomorrow is calling for a 90% chance of rain. 2/10th is not a difference between a full dry and a full wet setup so it will be interesting to see how thing play out.
For sure the lack of grip is providing lots of entertainment for the capacity crowd in Mexico City. It must be especially satisfying for race promoter Tavo Hellmund after the fall out with COTA investors to have such a huge success in Mexico.
Here's Rosberg's qualifying lap.
