2015 Mexican GP Post-Race Stats

Magnificent Mexico? Not so much, the return of the Mexican GP wasn’t as good as expected but the crowd were phenomenal.

Nico Rosberg took pole, the race win and the fastest lap of the race, the first time he has achieved that in his F1 career. Lewis Hamilton finished second with his 15th podium of the season and Valtteri Bottas third with this second of the season. Jenson Button gained the most places in the race, but last to 14th with four retirements isn’t very impressive.

The most places gained from drivers that scored points was only three, done by both Valtteri Bottas and Nico Hulkenberg. Home hero Sergio Perez qualified in ninth and finished in eighth, while Sebastian Vettel had an awful race, making a few mistakes before crashing and retiring towards the end of the race.

Ferrari had their first double retirement since the 2006 Australian Grand Prix, the following year they won both championships, anyone fancy a bet on Vettel for 2016? Both Ferraris also retired at the last Mexican GP in 1992, the champion and his teammate finished 1-2 and a young promising driver in third that later won seven championships, Bottas 2017 champion!
