Rosberg: All sorted

Rosberg: All sorted

Nico Rosberg revealed Mercedes' decision to impose orders in Malaysia was a shock as the team had not spoken about it ahead of the grand prix.

Running third and fourth behind the Red Bulls at the Sepang circuit, Rosberg was told to stay put behind team-mate Lewis Hamilton and not to attack.

The German queried the order, stating that he was faster than his British team-mate. However, the order, which was handed down by team boss Ross Brawn, remained the same.

Rosberg was later heard telling his boss to "remember" this in the future.

The 27-year-old, though, insists there are no hard feelings, he was just surprised as the team had no discussed the potential for team orders ahead of the race.

"We have discussed it and it is all sorted for the future which is important," he said during Thursday's FIA press conference in China.

"The difficulty was that we hadn't really discussed them before hand - that is the mistake that we made. So it is important going forward that everything is discussed and then whichever way it goes, if I'm in front and Lewis is behind and he respects that and vice-versa, then it is OK.

"As long as we are prepared for it and it is discussed well and understood then that is the important thing and that is a mistake we made as a team."

Asked whether he had been tempted to ignore the order, Rosberg added: "No I decided to fully respect the instructions that Ross gave me."
