Nico Rosberg has done more mileage than any other driver in a 2014 car thus far, having topped the laps completed charts at Jerez last week.

He already enjoyed a head start after he shook down the Mercedes at a filming day at Silverstone the previous Friday.

“Definitely I think it’s a surprise to do so many laps,” said Rosberg. “It’s such a mission with this new technology and everything, and really to get this reliability so early on is really a positive. But we’ve got no idea where we are in terms of pace and all that. So it’s really early days.
