Nico Rosberg praises Sebastian Vettell’s “absolutely epic” outlap

Nico Rosberg was full of praise for Sebastian Vettel after what he described as an “absolutely epic” out-lap. The German overtook team-mate Charles Leclerc in the pit-stop phase to take a surprise win. In his race day vlog, Rosberg said: "In the race, the strategy might not have been in his favour but the out lap Vettel did on those hard tyres was surely one of the best laps he’s ever done. It was absolutely epic, the computer calculated you should be able to gain about two-seconds and he gained three seconds on Charles. “He did the absolute most epic out-lap the world has ever seen so, you know, if you do the job there in those crucial moments then you somewhat deserve the race win. “So great job, hats off and a really important comeback for Sebastian, important for his mental game as well and for support within the team. Congrats there well deserved."
