Rosberg wins in Brazil and becomes the second-ever driver in history with most race wins without having won the championship · Alonso, 16th

Rosberg, runner-up

Rosberg Subcampeon

Nico Rosberg dominated the Brazil Formula 1 Grand Prix from start to finish, ahead of
Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. Mercedes’ German driver thus becomes claims second place in the 2015 drivers’ championship and also the second driver with most race wins, 13, without ever having been world champion. In this ranking he is only behind only one driver, Stirling Moss (16 wins, 4 second placings) and is level with David Coulthard, who only ever managed one second placing.

This race had more drivers being lapped than any other this year, but was far from being the most entertaining. Mercedes’ absolute superiority (this was their 44rd victory and 93rd podium, third race in a row with first and second place, of 27 in total…) meant that all the drivers on the grid except those of Mercedes and Ferrari were lapped, more than in Australia, where every driver from the sixth back was lapped. Only a spectacular Max Verstappen with his eye-catching overtaking of Sergio Pérez on the outside of the Senna S got people up out of their seats.

In this monotonous, dead rubber of a race, the Spanish drivers have no reason to be satisfied. Carlos Sainz retired on the first lap, and Fernando Alonso came in 16th, although he can at least be pleased that this time no mechanical problems stopped him from finishing.
