Title Fight Is On (Finally)

In another rather unremarkable race, Nico Rosberg passed pole-sitting teammate Lewis Hamilton at the first corner and easily held on to capture the Austrian Grand Prix and give life to a World Championship fight in F1.

Rosberg’s third victory of the year moved him to just 10 points behind Hamilton in the world championship. And the interest the result creates goes beyond the mathematical reality of what is now a very tight title battle. It was the first time this year — and arguably, depending upon how you look at it, the first time since the start of 2014 — that Rosberg had beaten Hamilton in a straight fight without there being any nagging “what ifs” hanging over the result.
