Second place for Nico Rosberg.

A strong drive from Nico Rosberg saw him finish on the podium
at the Indian Grand Prix with Lewis Hamilton finishing in sixth place.

First second place finish for Mercedes AMG Petronas this season.

Fantastic job on the strategy.

Nico finished in second place, scoring the team's eighth podium of the 2013 season and our first second place finish. “I had good pace and we really nailed the set-up here,” said Nico. “The team did a fantastic job on the strategy and thanks to the boys for that. The only thing which didn't work out perfectly was when I dropped behind Felipe at the start as it was not easy to overtake him on the track, but then we managed to clear him in the pits. Our target was to be the best of rest this weekend and it worked out perfectly.” 

Lewis Hamilton finished in sixth place at the Indian Grand Prix.
We'll keep pushing.

Lewis finished in sixth place after spending much of the race stuck behind the slower Ferrari of Felipe Massa. “The car has been pretty good this weekend but the race was frustrating for me,” explained Lewis. “I tried so hard to get past Felipe but it just wasn't possible and unfortunately I destroyed my tyres in doing so. Finishing in sixth place is never satisfying but we've got three more races and we'll keep pushing. I'm confident that we can get some more good results to keep the team in second place and we'll keep fighting to achieve just that.”

Mercedes AMG Petronas reclaimed second place in Constructors' Championship.

Second place in the
Constructors' Championship.

Scoring 26 points, the team reclaimed second place in the Constructors' Championship on 313 points. “Nico enjoyed a very, very good afternoon: the strategy worked out perfectly for him and he got all the right breaks, which allowed him to show what the car was capable of delivering,” said team principal Ross Brawn. “For Lewis, losing position to Massa early in the race proved critical. That meant we were unable to build a gap in the opening stint because we couldn't run at our natural pace, so as others behind us pitted, we had to anticipate our first stop in spite of having plenty of life left in the tyres. After that point, Lewis didn't have the straightline speed to pass Felipe and make the most of the core performance of the car.”

Third podium of current season for Nico Rosberg.
Still a long way to go.

This represents the team's strongest result since the Belgian Grand Prix in late August. Toto Wolff concluded the fourth-to-last-race of the season: “We have had a good afternoon compared to our direct rivals but there is still a long way to go until we can say mission accomplished. There is no complacency and our target will be to deliver another three strong weekends this season.”
