Rosberg swamped in red for a first at Monza

It was a lights to flag win for Mercedes and Nico Rosberg at Monza a year ago, but a red tinted podium celebration.

The future world champion took full advantage of team mate Lewis Hamilton's slow start, never putting  a foot wrong while the Silver Arrows' W07's unchallenged superiority did the rest.

It was also a first for Rosberg who claimed his only career win in the Italian Grand Prix.
