F1 >>> nEWs wiring loom failure costs rosberg A broken wiring loom inside the steering column was the early diagnosis of the problem that put Nico Rosberg out of the singapore Grand Prix. The German driver lost the points lead once his Mercedes Benz W05 Hybrid was diagnosed with the electrical glitch as soon as he tried to drive out of the team’s garage and onto the grid. In spite of frantic work by the team, they could not repair the problem, which compromised his gearshift and clutch. Rosberg was left on the grid as the field left on its warm-up lap, and started from pit lane. One he got going, last, in the race, the gearbox would shift up two gears at a time and the car’s hybrid and DRs systems were not working. Because of this, Rosberg struggled to make any positions while he was on the track. The car was retired after Rosberg’s first attempted pitstop, which required him to coast into the pits slowly because his speed limiter was also inactive. The team has flown the suspect parts back to its uK headquarters soon after the race and a diagnosis is expected to be carried out this week.
