Contrasting Korean fortunes for Mercedes
24 October 2010 – The first ever Korean Grand Prix threw up two very different results for the Mercedes Grand Prix drivers. Whereas Nico Rosberg was taken out of the race early on by an out-of-control Mark Webber, Michael Schumacher equalled his season’s best result of fourth.
“I am pretty happy with today's race and I have to say thank you to my team, who guided me perfectly through the afternoon,” said the elder of seven Germans in the field. “I am sure that the spectators had a lot of fun here today at this first Korean race
“The FIA did very well to start the race behind the Safety Car as it absolutely would not have been possible to have a racing start. The only shame for us today was that Nico was put out of the race, otherwise we would have seen a very good weekend for our team.”
