Nico Rosberg ended the free practice sessions of the season 2015 with a new first post in the times table. The runner-up in the world surpassed by almost two-three tenths to his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, as many drivers had some track output due to gusts of wind at the Yas Marina circuit. As a statistic, Rosberg has been the fastest in 22 sessions-free this season, one less than Hamilton.
In a session marked by the tops of some riders, spaniard Carlos Sainz has regained the pace, although still not be happy with its performance. The spaniard will be the engine of Mexico, as the Friday was left useless after its problems during the free of that day. For his part, Fernando Alonso it was not the 16th square and even had a strong out-of-tune, when he called “idiots” Romain Grosjean and Will Stevens because he was annoyed his fastest lap. Alonso, moreover, had to get help from your physiotherapist for a minor injury to his right hand.
Roberto Merhi, again, was overtaken by his teammate at the Manor, but that was not the last. Daniil Kvyat not marked lap in this session due to technical problems in his Red Bull, and only gave a setup. The Red Bull’s Russian was affected by an electrical fault.
