Rosberg Fastest as Mercedes Dominate in Abu Dhabi
Nico Rosberg knocked triple world champion team mate Lewis Hamilton off the top of the Abu Dhabi timesheets as Mercedes dominated the final Friday practise session of theFormula One season.
The German, runner-up in a championship already won by Hamilton, lapped with a best time of one minute 41.983 seconds under the Yas Marina floodlights.
He revealed afterwards, however, that he would have to use an old engine for the rest of the weekend which will put him at a disadvantage.
“We have had to stretch the engine life more than we had planned over the 19 races, so I definitely have a small lack of power on the straights and therefore need to make up extra time in the corners,” said Rosberg. Details
