Not much being said between the Mercedes drivers in the podium waiting area, but then do we expect anything different these days?

No funky hats for the podium this weekend. Vettel runs out there with his helmet, which has a historical Ferrari tribute on the back of it. Hamilton looks pretty stoic as he comes out for second, while Rosberg is all smiles for the announcement of his name and the German national anthem.

Hamilton the only man to spray the champagne. Rosberg and Vettel more keen to have an immediate swig from the podium.

Lap 71

Rosberg crosses the line to win the Brazilian Grand Prix and take second in the championship. Hamilton makes it a Mercedes one-two ahead of Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari.

Raikkonen finishes 33.2s off his team-mate in fourth but was on a two-stop rather than a three-stop strategy. Either way, it was enough to hold off Bottas in fifth by 31.9s. Only the top four were not lapped by Rosberg's Mercedes.

Mercedes congratulate Rosberg on victory and sympathise with Hamilton. "We know how difficult it is to follow around here, let alone pass".

So, that's victory number five for Rosberg, but it's all come a bit too late for the German, who lost the title three races ago in the U.S.

Lap 70

Rosberg still setting laps nearly a second quicker than everyone else, he is out to prove a point. Hamilton most likely looking after his engine for its last race in Abu Dhabi.

Lap 69

Rosberg comfortably ahead by 5.8s and Hamilton with a margin of 9.0s over Vettel. This result will hand Rosberg second in the championship with one race remaining.

Lap 68

But I can confirm Verstappen has made it past Maldonado for 10th.

Lap 67

We're having a few technical problems here...
