The graphic is wrong, or the team made a mistake?

Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

Ham better in all 3 sectors and I wonder if this delay will allow the rain to come in.
