Rosberg outshines Schumacher DESPITE having a good scrap with Lewis Hamilton during the race, Michael Schumacher felt pretty miserable after limping home in tenth place nearly a minute behind his team mate, Nico Rosberg. "As you imagine, there were some good emotions but there were unfortunately too many bad emotions," he said. "Quite honestly, I think all weekend didn't work out for myself. I think you have to compliment the English team [McLaren] and say congratulations to them - done a great job. "I had a nice battle with Lewis at some point, some nice kissing to each other. But, nevertheless, they've done it. Even congratulations to Nico, who made it up to the podium so at least one of us scored good points." Rosberg who, like Button, stayed on slicks while others pitted on lap two, is now second in the drivers standings. Schumi is tenth. Asked if he now considered himself Mercedes' number one, Nico dismissed the suggestion: "It's definitely not the case. From the beginning on we have been even in the team and I was saying even before, when everybody saw Michael was number one and me number two it's even, we both get the same possibilities. "But of course I'm very, very happy with the way it's going for me, really getting some consistent results, making the best of it, so I'm really pleased with my season so far. I have quite high hopes for what's to come." Schumacher says he's still yet to get used to the new generation of intermediate tyres. "Again it is a new condition and these intermediates are slightly different to what I know from the past and you have to pace yourself dramatically in order to keep them alive for long enough."

The Spaniard made the right tyre call and was running in fourth place but then, on lap seven, smoke started to pour from the rear of his car. "When you are in a svituation like this you really have to finish. We missed a great chance today," said De la Rosa, who suspects the issue was another engine failure. "I don't know what exactly happened," he said. "I felt there was something wrong with the engine and then stopped." The team confirmed the issue was engine related and are investigating the cause.
