Nico Rosberg was sorry not to reward Williams with sixth place in the constructors championship, as the German called time on his Williams career.
Rosberg just missed out on the points in ninth and claimed that he hadn’t the pace to do any better.
Kazuki Nakajima finished in thirteenth and was plagued by a number of on-track issues.
Nico Rosberg – 9th: It wasn’t a terribly exciting race for me today as I just didn’t have the pace to do any better. I would have liked to help the team hold on to 6th place in the Constructors’ Championship. From a personal perspective, my 7th place in the driver’s table wasn’t challenged and I think this was a good result this year in the circumstances. It’s been a long season and I would really like to thank all the team for their effort during the last four years. We have had a great time together.
Kazuki Nakajima – 13th: It wasn’t easy running on a one-stop today and I didn’t feel that the first stint went well. The middle of the race was more affected by traffic, but there was nothing to do except keep plugging away for 55 laps, but it was a good battle and I enjoyed myself.
Rod Nelson, Chief Operations Engineer: It was naturally disappointing not to be able to retain our championship position today, but well done to BMW and we will miss them next year. Both drivers competed well today, but the car wasn’t quick enough and a few incidents in the race compounded the situation. Losing time behind Trulli meant the one-stopping Kobayashi could get ahead of Nico, which made it very difficult to maintain our points margin
