Rosberg admits Hamilton was quicker this weekend

2014 Italian Grand Prix lap times and fastest laps

Posted on

| Written by

Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, Monza, 2014Lewis Hamilton had enough of a pace advantage over his team mate that even losing three places at the start didn’t stop him from winning the race.

Hamilton had consistently been a couple of tenths of a second quicker than Nico Rosberg throughout the Italian Grand Prix weekend. He headed two of the three practice sessions, and probably would have made it a hat-trick had he not been sidelined with an electrical problem for much of Friday afternoon. He was also quickest in all three stages of qualifying.

“Lewis was quicker this weekend,” Rosberg admitted afterwards, “so he deserved the win”. Sure enough Hamilton collected the fastest lap of the race, which he set several times while pursuing his team mate following his delay at the start.

“But I need to see the positive things from today,” Rosberg added. “Second place is still good and I lost only seven points to Lewis, so this could have been much worse.”

  1. Lewis was still very, very lucky no one touched him at the start. A slight touch and he could’ve lost some piece of his car and make life for him particularly difficult trying to overtake Massa.

    Also lucky Bottas had a rubbish getaway aswell. Rosberg made the day with those unforced errros anyway.

    1. thats not luck for lewis. that’s just smart placing of cars by the drivers around him and lewis himself.

      1. Not entirely. He was able to place his car so effectively because behind him Bottas and Ricciardo had terrible start as well. He had basically a wall of bad starting cars behind him that helped him retain top 5 place after the first corner.
        Either way I think it would still not make a big difference if he even slipped to P7 or P8. He was just in the different league to everyone else at the track and with nervous driving from Rosberg it was quite easy win for him today.

      2. @sato113 really? at such a tight corner, it’s just a matter of probabilities. Had he stormed off in 1st, he’d have no trouble to get out of there with his car intact.

        When you’re in the pack (and slower than the others), there’s a lot more chance that someone might touch you, or someone ahead tangles with another driver, they both slow down, and you ram them over. Or a Liuzzi coming from the back totally out of control…

        We’ve seen than kazillion times there.

    2. So Lewis gets bad luck due to mechanical problem at the start, after a brilliant pole.
      And somehow you see this as luck?
      Weird!

  2. Any data on the speed traps this race Keith? I heard Ricciardo of all people clocked 225mph at the end of the start/finish straight.

    1. Yes, Ricciardo’s top speed was 362 km/h, which is incredible indeed. Perhaps he knows best how to slipstream. :)

      1. Or Renault have actually now managed to put togetehr a decent engine and Red Bull just love to put them down all the time as a way to shift the buck off them for making a car that wasn’t fastest from day 1.

      2. i dont understand this as there was a 20kph gap it seemed from fastest in the speed trap to 4th or 5th!

  3. Massa was faster than Bottas…

    1. Obviously.. that’s why he was 3rd :) Although he was in a clear air the whole race without being really challenged to much after passing Magnussen and being passed by Lewis.

    2. Not exactly. Bottas was faster on 12 out of the last 14 laps of the race, which is the time he spent in fourth place. He was slower for most of the rest of the race because of his bad start and then having to overtake other cars, some of them with the same power unit (e.g. Magnussen between laps 30 and 37). There’s no doubt in my mind that Bottas would have finished on the podium with a better start.

  4. That Russian is really something. Sure he lacks experience but it will come together in the future. Expecting big things from Kvyat.

    1. That double slide on the grass was quite under control.

    2. He’s a superstar:) I agree he will be soon be fighting for the good stuff

  5. “But I need to see the positive things from today”.
    He needs to see Hamilton’s data.

    1. :D
      Lewis should just skip FP2 from now onwards.

    2. We’ll done @hzh00

      We need some funny stuff amidst all the conspiracy anger!

  6. Just wish Nico’s fans would admin it as well but I’m not holding my breath

  7. Nico set his fastest on lap 51,
    Lewis set his fastest on lap 29… He had it all under control

  8. Those three laps after hams pitstop were immense. Great to see look on Totes face then even better to see she’ll shocked Nic interview “he was coming at me like a rocket”.
    Monzas run off at chicanes are great. Mistakes are punished by driver loosing small amount of time and track position. This should be a model for all run off areas. Time for Canada to sort out runoff at last chicane where Nice made same mistake when under pressure from lewis but actually extended his lead by fractions of a second.

  9. Nico: “Please don’t tell me what the gap is anymore….”

  10. “Hamilton was quicker” , duh !
