The world championship may have gone to his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton, but Nico Rosberg at least had the satisfaction of marking F1’s memorable return to Mexico with a pole to checkered flag win Sunday.
Hamilton finished second, with Valtteri Bottas completing the podium for Williams.
Rosberg, who dominated practice and qualifying, held off Hamilton after a Sebastian Vettel crash saw the safety car deployed on lap 53 of 71 at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
Donning a sombrero, Rosberg told Nigel Mansell the winner of the last Mexico Grand Prix in 1992, that it was a memory which would live long with him.
“Amazing day, a great battle with Lewis, who drove really well. I’m really happy with the win, what a place to do it.”
“Mexicans are an absolutely awesome crowd.” Rosberg said.
Mexican pilot Sergio “Checo” Perez did well at his home race and came in 8th at the end of the day.
After the race was over, “Checo” made one lap on board a vintage convertible and the crowd went crazy cheering at him.
