Lewis Hamilton may have been fastest on Friday in China, but the Briton was clearly far from satisfied with the setup of his Mercedes.

Nico Rosberg says he’s learned lessons from the Bahrain GP, where he fought closely with team mate Lewis Hamilton, but ultimately lost out in their wheel-to-wheel fight.

“I’ve reviewed Bahrain, and just tried to learn from it, picked out the good things from it, what can I do better,” said Rosberg. “The key lesson from Bahrain – for sure I learned about battling, definitely a lot about that, because it’s not so common, to have many corner battles and things like that. That was very good experience, I definitely picked up many things there.”

All teams ran their regular race drivers on Wednesday, with the exception of Sauber (which used Giedo van der Garde), and Williams (which used Felipe Nasr for its tire testing).
