Williams F1 Team driver Nico Rosberg has collected the best result of his young F1 career by finishing the Singapore Grand Prix in second place. The German didn't steal his podium place as he had a difficult race first being held up by Jarno Trulli and than receiving a drive-through penalty for pitting while the pitlane was still closed.
Nico Rosberg said during the FIA post-race press conference: "I had a difficult start on the dirty side and didn't get away well. I got behind Jarno (Trulli) and he was very slow, very heavy on fuel. My only chance was at turn one when I wasn't close and turn seven where it was so bumpy. It took some time until I could get the move done and it was pretty hairy even there. Then I did some good laps and was able to break away from that group."
"When I saw the safety car come out on the lap I had to pit, I was like it's not possible that we'd have the same problem every single time. I was really annoyed and thought that was it until I realised I was able to pull enough of a gap out to be in a good position after the stop-and-go penalty. The car was good here and we had a good chance and everything went our way for once, which is fantastic."
Team mate Kazuki Nakajima completed the Williams party by scoring a point as well at the Singapore Grand Prix.
