Rosberg limps out of Singapore GP

21 September 2014, 16:30

Singapore - Nico Rosberg's world championship hopes were struck a huge blow on Sunday when his Mercedes limped out of the Singapore Grand Prix with electrical failure.

The German, who arrived at the Marina Bay street circuit 22 points clear of his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in the title race, had to start from the pitlane when his car remained stationary for the warm-up lap.

His team managed to get him moving from the pitlane but after trailing the rest of the pack, and lapping at five seconds slower than Hamilton, he crawled into the pits on lap 15 and retired, waving his hands in defeat.

Rosrberg's problems began before the floodlit race began, he had to change his steering wheel three times in the final 25 minutes before the race.

With the second spot on the grid empty Hamilton, now the sole occupier of the front row, made a perfect start, leading the pack from Red Bull's defending champion Sebastian Vettel.

The Briton had built up a seven second cushion over Vettel by lap 17.
