No, it’s wasn’t some dodgy mac ‘n’ cheese he had before race but more of a gust of wind, which apparently blew Rosberg off the race track, gifting Lewis Hamilton the race win which was enough for him to clinch the world title.
“It was a gust of wind,” Rosberg said. “A big one. I’m serious, actually.
“But everybody has it so you can’t really use it as an excuse. It is still a mistake but I understand my mistake now and that’s important.
“For me to understand it, that it was a very unusual scenario which happened just once in all those laps and everything… that helps me a lot moving forward. I lost a lot of rear downforce as a result.”
So there you go. It was the winds fault.
