Rosberg – The man who can’t stop winning.

If there had ever been a commentators curse it was that one following the line uttered by Sky Sports commentator Martin Brundle.

At the time it was a statement that was obviously accurate.

Following Nico Rosberg’s victory at the Russian Grand Prix, the German had won seven races in succession.

At the end of 2015, Rosberg won in Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

He took that form into the 2016 Formula One World Championship winning in Australia, Bahrain, China and Russia.

That run ended with a robust defensive move on Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton, which put the Brit on to the grass and spinning off, collecting Rosberg as the duo ended the race in the gravel trap.

With both retiring, Rosberg’s 43 point lead remained in tact, but his form did not.

Over the following 7 Grand Prix, that 43 point lead for Rosberg has turned into a 19 point deficit.

Hamilton has won 6 of the last 7 races, whilst Rosberg has won in Baku, he’s only stood on the podium on two other occasions.

?Lewis doesn?t just seem strong in the recent Grands Prix, Lewis is strong ? a big difference there, So it?s always going to be a battle against

It’s not over yet for Rosberg, Hamilton knows he will have to start at least one race from the back of the grid due to engine penalties, giving Rosberg a clear shot at getting the championship battle back on an even keel.

?I have enough evidence to show myself that I?m always strongest after difficult moments. Time and time again. So no issues there.? Rosberg said.
