Rosberg completes second career Grand Slam

Nico Rosberg took his fifth victory of the season in the inaugural Grand Prix in Baku, and he did it in Grand Slam style, having led every lap from pole position and captured fastest lap. Rosberg’s second career Grand Slam comes just four races after he’d scored his first (in Russia), and moves him level with team mate Lewis Hamilton, as well as Mika Hakkinen, Jack Brabham and Juan Manuel Fangio, on the all-time list.

Rosberg is the first winner of a race designated the Grand Prix of Europe since Fernando Alonso triumphed for Ferrari in Valencia in 2012. It was also Mercedes’ first win in a race with that title. Hamilton may have missed the podium, but the Briton did at least clock the fastest recorded speed in the race – 364.4 km/h (226.4 mph) at the finish line, which is also the fastest recorded speed seen this season.
