Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel were fifth and 6th, well over a second down on Mercedes.

Advanced scope and sound analysis of Sunday's race is live on the Sport site.

Vettel was 0.218secs off Raikkonen and 1.6secs behind Rosberg in the wake of conceding he "fouled up" his best lap with various mistakes.

Michael Schumacher leaves hospital for recovery at home

Michael Schumacher leaves hospital for recovery at home

Former F1 champion Michael Schumacher has left a Swiss hospital to continue his recovery at home, his manager says.
Sabine Kehm said in a statement that he had made "progress", but there was "a long and difficult road ahead".
Schumacher suffered a head injury in a skiing accident in France in December last year and was transferred to the Swiss hospital in June.
Schumacher's family said in June that he had come out of a medically induced coma to reduce swelling in his brain.
Schumacher spent six months at a hospital in France after his accident, before being transferred to the hospital in Lausanne. His family home is in Gland, which is on the shores of Lake Geneva, some 40km (25 miles) from Lausanne.

  • Born: 3 January 1969
  • First GP win: Belgium 1992
  • Last GP win: China 2006
  • Races started: 303
  • Wins: 91 (155 podium finishes)
  • Championships: 7 (1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004
"Henceforth, Michael's rehabilitation will take place at his home. Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months," Ms Kehm said in a statement on Tuesday.
The statement did not give any indication of whether there had been a change in the state of Schumacher's health.
"We ask that the privacy of Michael's family continue to be respected, and that speculations about his state of health are avoided," it added.
His family and manager also thanked the team at CHUV Lausanne hospital "for their thorough and competent work".

Schumacher underwent two operations to remove blood clots from his brain before he was put into a medically induced coma to try to reduce swelling.
Investigators probing the accident at the French ski resort of Meribel said Schumacher had been going at the speed of "a very good skier" at the time of his crash.
He had been skiing off-piste when he fell and hit a rock, they said.
Last month, a man arrested on suspicion of leaking Michael Schumacher's medical files was found hanged in his cell.
The man, who has not been named, was a manager at Swiss air rescue firm Rega, which was involved in the transfer of Schumacher from Grenoble, France, to Lausanne.
Schumacher's medical records were allegedly stolen and offered for sale to several newspapers.

American racing driver dies after being hit by Tony Stewart's car

American racing driver dies after being hit by Tony Stewart's car

An American racing driver has died after being struck by the car of three-time Nascar champion Tony Stewart during a local sprint race in New York.
Stewart and Kevin Ward Jr, 20, had collided on the previous lap of the dirt track race on Saturday.
Ward climbed out of his car on to the track and was gesturing at Stewart in his passing car when he was struck.
"There aren't words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident," said fellow American Stewart, 43.
"It's a very emotional time for all involved. My thoughts and prayers are with Kevin's family, friends and everyone affected by this tragedy," his statement continued.
Stewart is the co-owner of Nascar team Stewart-Haas Racing, having become driver-owner in 2008.
His most recent Nascar crown came in 2011, and he was number 83 on the Forbes list  of highest paid athletes in 2013.
Stewart cancelled plans to compete in Sunday's Nascar Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen.
"We were talking through the night, and we gave Tony some time to sleep on it," said team manager Greg Zipadelli.
"He feels strongly that this is the right thing to do. We at Stewart-Haas Racing strongly support it and agree with it."
Stewart, who frequently competes at local sprint car events, was questioned by police and released.
Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said Stewart was "fully co-operative" and appeared "very upset"

Stewart made his debut in the Sprint Cup, Nascar's premier stock car series, in 1999 and has since secured 48 wins in 542 starts
He added: "This is being investigated as an on-track crash and I don't want to infer that there are criminal charges pending.
"When the investigation is completed, we will sit down with the district attorney and review it.
"But I want to make it very clear - there are no criminal charges pending at this time."
Povero asked people who have video of the crash to provide copies for investigators to review.
Stewart-Haas Racing said in a statement: "A tragic accident took place last night during a sprint car race in which Tony Stewart was participating.
"Tony was unhurt, but a fellow competitor lost his life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
"We're still attempting to sort through all the details and we appreciate your understanding during this difficult time."
The track, which hosted the local dirt-track event at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, located 30 miles south-east of Rochester in upstate New York, cancelled the remainder of the race within five minutes of the incident.

MotoGP: Marc Marquez wins record 10th race in row for Honda

MotoGP: Marc Marquez wins record 10th race in row for Honda

Honda's Marc Marquez won his 10th MotoGP race in a row at Indianapolis to equal Mick Doohan's 1997 record and continue his domination in 2014.
Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo was second with team-mate Valentino Rossi third.
Marquez, 21, fought his way back from fifth to trade the lead with the Yamaha pair and Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso.
"I expected an easier race but at the start it was very close," Marquez said. "My tyres were on the limit so it was difficult. It's great to win again."
Reigning champion Marquez has won every race this season and has also been victorious in all five of his MotoGP races in the United States.

Australian Michael Doohan was the last rider to win 10 races in a row during the 1997 season
Marquez started on pole but found himself in fifth place after the first corner following a lightening start by Dovizioso, on the much improved Ducati, and Rossi, who took the lead in the Yamaha after coming up from the second row.
The defending champion managed to haul his Honda back up to third by the second lap at America's famous Indianapolis Speedway and when Rossi and Dovizioso touched on lap five as the Italian pair duelled for the lead, it left the door wide open for Marquez to take his usual place at the head of the field.
Spaniard Lorenzo then followed countryman Marquez through on the second Yamaha.
Nine-time champion Rossi re-took the lead on the following lap but although the Yamahas battled manfully with Marquez up to half distance, the Spaniard edged away to win by 1.803 seconds from Lorenzo, with Rossi 6.558 secs back in third.
