2016 Grand Prix of Europe

Pole position, fastest lap and a lights-out to flag-fall race leading victory gave Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg the perfect Grand Prix of Europe weekend. Increasing his championship lead, ahead of his team mate Lewis Hamilton, to 24 points, Rosberg drove 51 serene laps around the challenging streets of the Baku City Circuit during Formula 1's first visit to Azerbaijan.

Crossing the line in second place, Sebastian Vettel continued his solid but disappointing season for Ferrari.

Mexican Force India driver, Sergio Perez once again produced an impressive performance to take the final podium place in third position.
