Hamilton 5th, Rosberg 7th in 2013 Korean Grand Prix

It was another solid outing for the Mercedes F1 team. Solid, but most definitely not stellar.

At least, it hasn’t been enough to really grab some more wins. Tire wear has reared its ugly head, with Hamilton suffering from it on his right front one, right in his second stint after a stop.
