Also Rosberg admitted: “Throughout the year has seen the Lewis made a little bit better job – in the race was for me always a little something missing in the last part of the season, although I was a little more in qualifying.”
Massive technical problems hindered both the number of race was at the end of the same – three times was something wrong in one of them. But Hamilton proved this year that the allegation is no longer true, he would lose the nerves in crucial situations and then throw away chances of eagerness.
