Baku, November 17, AZERTAC 

Nico Rosberg claimed back-to-back F1 triumphs as he raced to victory in the Brazilian Grand Prix Sunday, according to CNN.

The Mercedes driver has cut a frustrated figure for much of 2015 as teammate and rival Lewis Hamilton cruised to a second straight F1 title.

But it was all about the German in Sao Paolo this weekend as he built upon victory in Mexico last time out to notch consecutive victories for only the second time this season.

Rosberg started on pole at the Interlagos track and refused to give up the lead all afternoon despite being pushed hard by Hamilton for long spells.

The Briton was just two seconds behind with 20 laps remaining but could only watch on in frustration as Rosberg edged away towards the end.

Sunday's result means Rosberg is now guaranteed to finish second in the driver's championship.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel claimed third ahead of teammate Kimi Raikkonen in fourth and Valtteri Bottas of Williams in fifth position.

Nico Hulkenberg of Force India claimed sixth spot while the Red Bull of Danii Kvyat finished seventh.

Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean and Max Verstappen claimed the final points positions in eighth, ninth and tenth respectively.
