Rosberg arrives late at Spa

One face noticably missing from the Spa-Francorchamps paddock yesterday was that of Williams driver Nico Rosberg. The German driver was reportedly at Silverstone, England, where he was sheking down a FW30. The move is slightly unusual because Nico Hulkenberg, the team’s test driver, would normally be expected to complete this sort of task.

Although standard testing is not permitted in the week before an F1 race, teams are allowed 50 kms of running to help them prepare and shake down their cars.
